An unexpected win for the Windies has made this lifeless series interesting. Not many people would have predicted that the fifth ODI would be the series decider.
Now, India cannot afford to test the bench strength. A victory at Kingston is a must if Virat Kohli and Co want to clinch the five-match series. This means that Rishabh Pant would have to wait longer to make his ODI debut.
Jason Holder's men, on the other side, must be pumped up after edging India in the fourth ODI by 11 runs. Had it not been for Holder's disciplined bowlers, MS Dhoni could have finished the game. The hosts' batsmen, however, need to step up and provide their bowlers a respectable total.
