It's a 3-1 series win for the Indians! Rohit slammed five boundaries and four sixes in his 56-ball innings while Kohli played 29 balls and hammered six boundaries.

India brought back Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah but it wasn't enough as West Indies defeated India by 43 runs despite another Kohli hundred.

The fifth and final One-Day International match between India vs West Indies will be played in Thiruvananthapuram on November 1, 2018. The previous game at Mumbai too was dominated by the hosts before they romped to a 3-1 series win.

The match, ultimately, lasted less than 50 overs.

On his way to the Greenfield International Stadium, Dhoni was made aware of the fan waiting for him. The first was on November 7 a year ago when the hosts defeated New Zealand in a T20 match that was shortened to inclement weather and saw just saw an eight over per side match.

FIRST MATCH: Guwahati, India won by eight wickets.

The organisers, the Kerala Cricket Association, are in an upbeat mood as the ground boasts of one of the best drainage systems in the business and even if the rain comes crashing down, they will be able to get it back into shape quickly once the rain stops. The team that showed stoic performance during the entire series crumbled against the Indian bowlers in the last match.

After the results of the Test series, not many would have expected the Windies team to put up such a contest in the ODI series.

Rain halted India's winning run, as they succumbed a 5-wicket loss via DLS method despite scoring 289 runs at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

While the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, who was dropped from the fourth ODI, have been amongst wickets, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has looked a pale shadow of himself this year.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had earlier announced the team India squad for T20 Internationals against West Indies and Australia.

They both have hit a century each and would like to repeat it for one final time to help their side tie the series.

Jadeja, who turns 30 next month, picked up 4-34 as the West Indies batting line-up capitulated for 104 inside 32 overs after captain Jason Holder won the toss and opted to bat at Thiruvananthapuram. It will be noteworthy to see who replaces Nurse in the T20 Series, as he was a big game changer for Windies in this Series.
