West Indies opt to bat in 5th ODI

Rohit Sharma notched up his 21st ODI century on Monday

It was the West Indies' lowest total in a one-day worldwide against India, and their 10th lowest against any country.

India is leading the 5-match series 2-1 after the third match ended in a dramatic tie.

After left-hand batsman Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed cheaply for six, Indian opener Rohit Sharma (63) and skipper Virat Kohli (33) stitched a match-winning partnership of 99 runs to drive their side to a comfortable victory. "Credit has to go to the bowling unit, pitching the ball in the right place", Kohli said after the win. "We were surprised West Indies batted".

Jadeja set up the convincing victory after returning figures of 4-34 from his 9.5 overs.

"God forbid, if anything happens to Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) or (Jasprit) Bumrah, we have another guy who can come in and pick up wickets". Bumrah bowled Shai Hope for zero.

Jadeja also trapped big-hitter Shimron Hetmyer lbw for nine to rattle the West Indies middle-order.

Jason Holder, the Windies captain, confirmed the development while mentioning the personnel changes at the toss of the fifth ODI in Thiruvananthapuram.

However, even a draw in the series for West Indies would a great achievement, considering India's dominance in the 50-over format at home.

Moreover, Virat Kohli also made a record of scoring fastest 10,000 runs.

"To get runs as captain always gives me confidence".

The Indian side hopped across to England, and after clinching the three-match T20I series, they started the ODIs with a bang by winning the first match easily. The match start time is 1:30 PM IST.

UMPIRES: C. Shamshuddin (India) and P. Wilson (Australia).

MAN-OF-THE-MATCH: Ravindra Jadeja.

Indian cricket team celebrated the win with a cake cutting ceremony.

The lanky Ahmed, who made his debut against Hong Kong in the Asia Cup in September, has taken 11 wickets in his six ODIs for India so far.

The last time the Carribean side won a bilateral series against India was way back in 2006.
