Virat Kohli, India captain: Turned out to be that wayBecause of our clinical performance the game was finished early in the day. Wanted to bowl first anyway, we were surprised when they chose to bat first. Still had to execute our plans. Losing the toss was a blessing in disguise for us. Very happy when the team plays well, regardless of personal performance. When you play like that everyone is delighted and happy. Two areas third seamer - Khaleel has been outstanding and Rayudu doing well at number 4. God forbid anything to happens to Bhuvi or Bumrah but we have a third seamer ready.Those two areas were important. To contribute as a captain is an added bonus. Won't happen everytime. Awards are by-products of what you do on the field.

17:27 (IST)

Virat Kohli is the Man of the Series

17:24 (IST)

Ravindra Jadeja is Man of the Match

Jadeja: I am enjoying my game at the moment. When I am on the field, I try and give by best. In that decision review case, the ball did not spin much and the ball went straight. We were not sure where the ball was pitched. 

17:23 (IST)

Jason Holder, Windies captain: Not the finish we were looking for. Lacked consistency in the last couple of games. Credit to the guys, admirable performance against India in India. Thought it would've been a good pitch. Their bowlers put the ball in the right areas. Lot of our dismissals were poor shots, wasn't about the pitch.The pitch was on the slower side a bit need little bit more application. Relatively happy with the youngsters, still one or two things that we need to brush up on. Few bright spots, Hetymer and Shai Hope have been good even Oshane Thomas did well too.

17:15 (IST)

India team has made massive statement with these two thumping victories in back to back games. Following Pune, their ego was hurt and they needed a performance like this to lift the spirits in the dressing room.

After 13 overs,India 93/1 ( Rohit Sharma 58 , Virat Kohli (C) 26)

Kohli gets a leading edge off the fourth delivery, but it lands well beyond the bowler's reach, allowing the Indian skipper a single.

Rohit Sharma nicks one to the keeper off Thomas's bowling, but umpire Anil Chaudhary signals a no-ball even before the bowler can start celebrating...

16:30 (IST)

Oshane Thomas looks like an exciting prospect for Windies cricket. He is quick, can swing the ball both ways and has a deceptive short ball. With proper grooming he can make a lot of batsmen around the world uncomfortable.

Rohit's surprised by the extra bounce generated by Roach in the third delivery of the over. Second maiden for the Barbadian pacer. 

16:23 (IST)

Dropping Kohli was the last thing Windies wanted. That was a sitter for the slip fielder. Unfortunate for young Thomas , who has bowled well but instead of getting the priced scalp of Kohli, he was hit for two  boundaries in that over following the missed opportunity. This is the harsh reality of international cricket.

Rohit pushes a delivery aimed at his leg-stump towards midwicket, getting enough time to run a third. Three off Roach's third over. 

16:15 (IST)

And Dhawan's lean patch continues following the Asia Cup. He hasn't scored a single half-century in his last five innings. Going into the three-match T20I series, which starts in Kolkata on November 4, these string of low scores will certainly keep him under pressure.

After 4 overs,India 22/1 ( Rohit Sharma 4 , Virat Kohli (C) 12)

Thomas nearly dismisses Kohli, as the Indian skipper pokes at a short-of-length ball outside off, straightto his WI counterpart at first slip.

Eight off the over.

Preview: Brimming with confidence after the massive 224-run win in the penultimate game, India will be eyeing to register their eighth straight series win over the West Indies when they face off in the fifth and final contest of the rubber at the Greenfield international stadium on Thursday.

After the resounding victory in the fourth One-day International (ODI) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, the Virat Kohli-led hosts lead the series 2-1, with the second match being tied.

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

With the northeastern monsoon in full cry, the match could well end up shortened as the the weatherman has predicted a brief thunderstorm in the afternoon and late evening.

This is only the second international cricket match to be staged at the Greenfield Stadium. The first was on November 7 last year 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. India won by six runs.

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.

Going into the final ODI, with opener Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu and skipper Kohli in top form, India will like to keep the momentum into the series decider. Rayudu also took a step ahead in cementing his place at No. 4 slot with a fine century in the previous game.

Rohit also smashed an impressive 162 off 137 balls in the fourth ODI while the skipper has three tons from four games. The Indian batting will once again mostly rely on the shoulders of these two on Thursday.

Despite impressive performances by the top order, the cause of concern for the team management will be the flop show of stumper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

The former skipper has failed to live up to the expectations, which also resulted in his exclusion from the Twenty20 international (T20I) series against the Windies and Australia.

It will be the litmus test for Dhoni, who has been under fire for his continuous poor performances.

In the bowling department, chinaman Kuldeep Yadav has been impressive in this series so far after scalping eight wickets from three games and Kohli will like him to replicate his past, specially in the middle overs.

Pacer Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are expected to dismantle the Windies top order in the initial overs, while Khaleel Ahmad, who was a surprise package in Mumbai with figures of 3/13, could be a crucial support for his seniors.

Coming to the West Indies squad, batsmen Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope are the only two batsmen who have shown some fight against the home side.

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

Captain Jason Holder has shown he can be fruitful with the bat down the order.

However, the visitors could possibly miss the services of off-spinner Ashley Nurse, who has been a consistent performer with five wickets from the series.

Nurse is doubtful for the series decider after suffering an injury during the last game. His absence could affect the hopes of the visitors in a crucial contest.

Squads:

India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (Captain), Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni(Wicket-keeper), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, K Khaleel Ahmed, Jasprit Bumrah, Lokesh Rahul, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rishabh Pant, Umesh Yadav, Manish Pandey.

West Indies: Chandrapaul Hemraj, Kieran Powell, Shai Hope (Wicket-keeper), Marlon Samuels, Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder (Captain), Fabian Allen, Ashley Nurse, Keemo Paul, Kemar Roach, Sunil Ambris, Devendra Bishoo, Obed McCoy, Oshane Thomas.
