India vs West Indies 5th ODI at Trivandrum: Former India captain MS Dhoni again proved his worth in the side by clinging onto a sharp chance early on in the game to send Kieron Powell back in the hut without any score. While India was chasing 105 runs, they lost their first wicket as Shikhar Dhawan has to depart in the second over of the match. "I don't play for awards, just to impact the series and help the team win". Asked to bowl first, India never let the Windies off the hook.

The second match ended in an exciting draw while the visitors outplayed India in the third ODI to claim their first victory of the tour.

The Indian batsmen are in great form led by their skipper Kohli who has scored three hundreds in his last three matches against West Indies.

Pacer Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are expected to dismantle the Windies top order in the initial overs, while Khaleel Ahmad, who was a surprise package in Mumbai with figures of 3/13, could be a crucial support for his seniors. He became the second Indian batsman to complete 1000 ODI runs in this calendar year - after Kohli - and the fastest to hit 200 sixes (187 innings, eight less than Shahid Afridi). This is the sixth time Kohli is lifting the trophy at home.

Speaking at the post-match presentation ceremony, Jadeja explained what the confusion was regarding the DRS call. It's a 3-1 series win for the Indians! India won by six runs.
