Ind vs WI, India vs West Indies 5th ODI Live Cricket Score Streaming Online: India were pushed all the way in the first three ODIs of the five-match series but had things far easier in the fourth ODI at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai to win by 224 runs.

MAN-OF-THE-SERIES: Virat Kohli.

Jadeja also trapped big-hitter Shimron Hetmyer lbw for nine to rattle the West Indies middle-order. India made a decision to rest their key pacers for the first two games and paid a heavy price, as the Windies managed to score 300+ runs in both the matches. "We were surprised West Indies batted".

"Great effort by the boys to win the series". India were clinical at Thiruvananthapuram in the fifth and final ODI, finishing the entire match inside 47 overs.

After thrashing the West Indies at Mumbai and taking a 2-1 lead, India arrived at Thiruvananthapuram hoping to finish the series in style. Pollard who specialises in T20 matches will be eager to make the most of this opportunity against India.

With the northeastern monsoon in full cry, the match could well end up shortened as the the weatherman has predicted a brief thunderstorm in the afternoon and late evening. India will play three ODIs in January against Australia away and another five ODIs against New Zealand on their turf, before the start of the World Cup.

Rohit-led India defeated Hong Kong by 26 runs after coming considerably close to suffering an embarrassment.

Going into the final ODI, with opener Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu and skipper Kohli in top form, India will like to keep the momentum into the series decider. The toss will take place at 1:00 PM IST.

The former skipper has failed to live up to the expectations, which also resulted in his exclusion from the Twenty20 global (T20I) series against the Windies and Australia.

Kohli credited the bowling unit for pitching the ball in the right place.

Young paceman Khaleel Ahmed also made his presence felt for India, with two key strikes including the wicket of Holder. They hardly lose or draw any series at home. Ashley Nurse is out, Devendra Bishoo comes in.
