India vs West Indies

West Indies win toss and elect to bat first

Hello and welcome to inUth’s live digital coverage of the fifth and the final India vs West Indies One Day International (ODI) in Jamaica’ Sabina Park. After losing the 4th match to the Caribbean hosts by 11 runs, team India has lost the chance to do a white wash over the series. However, they still have the chance to win the series by winning today’s game and making the scores 3-1. On the other hand, Jason Holder & Co. will surely put their entire efforts to win this match and level the series. They have already lost the 2nd and 3rd ODI while the first was called off due to rain. Secondly, for the sake of their selection in the World Cup 2019 without playing the qualifiers, the Windies need to get through this game.

The teams

Indian Squad

It’s nothing hidden was happened in the last ODI when Jason Holder’s 5 wicket haul gave deep bruises to the Indian batting line-up. Though Ajinkya Rahane’s 60 and then Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s half century took the closer to the target but, as it happened, they fell short bu 11 runs to take the game home. MS Dhoni’s slow strike rate and his 54 off 114 balls became the talk of the game and the entire blame came on his head after India lost. Well, if we see properly on the score, the other batsmen except Rahane and Dhoni failed to perform and what happened next is very well known.

Skipper Virat Kohli made two changes in the last game where he picked Dinesh Karthik instead of Yuvraj Singh and gave chance to Mohammad Shami in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Unfortunately, both the new inductions somehow didn’t work. Karthik could score only 2 runs while Shami couldn’t get a single wicket despite delivering an economic spell.

Still, Rishabh Pant is warming the benches and speculations are still there that at least in the last and a crucial game, this young hard hitting batsman could get a chance to make his debut and show his batting skills.

The Windies Squad

Fast bowler Kesrick Williams has found great success with his assortment of slower deliveries. So, West Indies will be looking to Williams to stand up and deliver in the big match, and he is highly capable of doing so. Jason Holder would look forward to continuing his bowling skills similar to what he did in the last ODI.

As far as any changes are concerned, by the looks of it there should not be a change to their outfit. They in all probability to field the winning team.

Squads for Today’s game:

India

Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli(c), Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Rishabh Pant, Mohammed Shami, Dinesh Karthik

West Indies

Evin Lewis, Kieran Powell, Shai Hope(w), Jason Mohammed, Roston Chase, Jonathan Carter, Jason Holder(c), Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Alzarri Joseph, Miguel Cummins, Rovman Powell, Kesrick Williams
