India to take on West Indies in 5th ODI

After trailing 2-1 in the five ODI matches’ series, Windies have kept its hopes alive by winning this match. If the team wins the match being played today, it will be able to draw the series.
On the other hand, India having upper hand in this match, can make this series in its name by toiling little less than the opponent team.

What happened in the last matches?
The first match was canceled due to rain. After that India took a lead by winning two consecutive matches. But, due to the shocking defeat in the fourth onedayer, it has to wait for the fifth and the final match. Both teams were bowling well in the last match. India had first stopped at 189 runs the Windies, but its batsmen failed to achieve this goal and the team got out on 178 runs.


Top Batsmen flopped

The big concern for both teams in this sense is batting. Batsman Shikhar Dhawan, who has scored the most runs in the Champions Trophy, has not been able to do anything special in this series. In the last match they will expect the team to score runs. At the same time Captain Virat Kohli also failed in the last match with the bat. Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya have been performing well at the end, but both of them also failed in the last match. In such a situation, the team would want to manage the batsmen, who failed in the last match, do well in the last match.

All eyes on Rahane and Dhoni
Two players have performed well with the bat for India in this series. Opener Ajinkya Rahane has crossed 50 per match and former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored one half-century. But in the last match both of them had played very slow innings. India's biggest concern is to make a fast run in this series.

Kartik also flopped at Yuvraj's place
India gave a chance to Dinesh Karthik by resting Yuvraj Singh in the last match, but he too could not live up to the expectations.
In the last match, it has to be seen whether Yuvraj makes a comeback or not. If the team management does not consider Yuvraj, then instead of Karthik, the young Rishabh Pant may find a place in the team. Pant has the best ability to play fast. This young batsman also specializes in playing big shots.


Wondered by the Windies
The West Indies were surprised by their performance in the last match. Captain Jason Holder had received the award for his victory. They did not allow the Indian batsmen to reach the target by taking five wickets. Apart from bowling, Alzari Joseph, Ashwell Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, who performed well in the last match. In the last match, the captain had put Miguel Cummins out. Since this match is important then the team can return to the final eleven.
