  • 02:53 (IST)

    Ajinkya Rahane is the Man of the Series for his 336 runs off 5 innings: Thank you. I really want to make it count, and even in the Champions Trophy I had been batting well in the nets. The wicket was slightly better here compared to the previous games. The ball was coming on nicely, and this was the best wicket to bat. I was just trying to enjoy my batting. ODI cricket is all about enjoying your batting and go at your own pace. Whenever I go onto bat, I always look to give my best and even in the future I want to enjoy myself.

  • 02:49 (IST)

    Virat Kohli is the Man of the Match for his match winning 111: First and foremost, the aim was to win the series. Some special performance from the boys and special mention to Rahane who has been consistent throughout the series. Today was another clinical performance from us. For me it is all about the target. Two failures in the last 2 games, I never look at stats and numbers. I feel chase is more comfortable. Taking control of the situations. Dinesh was outstanding. Partnership helps, communication helps. If you carry a squad of 15-16 it is important to believe in them. As I mentioned Kuldeep was outstanding, Shami was playing after 2 years. Always been a batsmen who has played to the situation. Still love to finish the game and ya right now I am taking extra responsibility and something you learn. I am relishing the opportunity.

    Jason Holder, Windies captain: We got a very good start. Unfortunately Kyle Hope got out when we were building some momentum. I just hope that the guys learn quickly.  It's a relatively inexperienced side. I can only control what I can control. Probably will get better results as we go along. Thought the pitch was good enough, it was good enough for batting. We didn't capatalise on the starts. 

  • 02:32 (IST)

    It was all class from Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik after Rahane's loss in the 19th over. The total of 205 was never going to be daunting for the Indians, but India did it with some authority today. They left the ghosts of the 4th ODI in Antigua, there itself. There was a daylight between the two sides before the start of the series, but it was shown by the Indian side today. Resounding performance, Windies lost it in their batting, they could not build one or two big partnerships and the game kept slipping away since.

    CENTURY! With a flick through the mid wicket, Kohli gets his 28th ODI ton! Sublime innings by Virat Kohli. Extremely balanced innings, came out with the right attitude. He was severe on the bad balls and gave due respect to the ones that were bowled it right areas. Corrected a few things in his batting, which didn't go according to the plan in the previous game. Sign of a great player, must have been bummed with the results in 4th ODI at Antigua, leaves it for no one here. Kohli gets his 18th Hundred while chasing, goes pass his idol, Sachin Tendulkar, and there is probably a decade of cricket left in the 28-year old Kohli. What a champion!

  • 02:05 (IST)

    After 34 overs,India 184/2 ( Virat Kohli (C) 95 , Dinesh Karthik 44)

    Karthik takes the single off the first ball, but after a firm push to the fielder, Kohli takes a single of the next ball with controlled pull shot off a ball that was going above hsi head. Kohli swirls in his crease to ensure he does not miscue it, great transformation from the last game. Shows how hungry he is to correct his mistakes. Karthik flicks it through the yawning mid wicket gap.

    Players break for a drink. Kohli to take strike in the over after drinks, 5 short off his hundred.

Kohli gets top off a short ball and rolls his wrists over it to pull through mid wicket. The slow outfield doesn't let it run away into the boundary. Holder follows it up with a bouncer and Kohli ducks under it. Kohlli is so eager to keep the strike and get to his 100 now, he just dropped it to point and took off for a single, but was sent back early by Karthik. 6 short off his 28th ODI century.

  • 01:49 (IST)

    After 31 overs,India 170/2 ( Virat Kohli (C) 91 , Dinesh Karthik 35)

    Kohli gets an inside edge as the ball cuts back a little, Shai Hope should have stopped that, but instead just gets a hand to it and Kohli picks up two more, moves to 84. Back of a length and Kohli stands tall and gets a couple. That was genuinely a super shot for two.  He follows it up with a stunning boundary through the gap of cover and mid off. Glorious!

  • 01:45 (IST)

  • 01:43 (IST)

Holder troubles Karthik, who is looking get runs off every ball, Holder is willy enough to decive him with a slower bouncer. He gets a bottom edge which goes to the keeper and then there is a word of advice from the skipper, to not go after every ball. Holder has bowled well in his 6th over.

Preview: Smarting from the defeat in the previous match, India will be eager for revenge and finish the series with a victory when they take on West Indies in their fifth and final One-Day International (ODI) on Thursday.

The visitors lost the fourth ODI by 11 runs in North Sound, Antigua after some extremely slow batting while chasing a low target of 190 runs.

That defeat took some of the gloss off India's dominating performances in the previous matches of the series which they currently lead by 2-1. The opener of the five-match series was a washout falling victim to rain.

Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni racked up the dubious distinction of scoring the slowest half-century by an Indian batsman in more than a decade with a painstaking, snail-like innings of 54 runs which included a single boundary over 114 deliveries.

Known for his hard-hitting batting in the closing stages and his ability to chase down challenging targets, Dhoni will be eager to produce another trademark high tempo innings and redeem himself.

In-form opener Ajinkya Rahane was the only other Indian batsman who managed to stand up to the West Indies bowlers with a patient innings of 60 runs off 91 deliveries.

The rest of the Indian batsmen failed miserably. Seemingly cruising to a comfortable victory with 31 runs needed in the last five overs and five wickets in hand, India suffered a spectacular lower-order batting collapse.

The visitors lost their last five wickets in as many overs to be all out for 178 in reply to the West Indies total of 189/9.

The top-order batsmen did not cover themselves in glory either. India got off to a bad start as apart from Rahane, no other Indian top order batsmen managed to reach double- figures.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan, skipper Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik departed in quick succession to leave the visitors struggling at 47/3 in the 13th over.

In sharp contrast to the batsmen, the Indian bowlers have been consistent during this series.

Fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar did well in the second and third ODIs before being replaced by Bengal pacer Mohammed Shami in the fouth game. Although Shami did not bag any wickets, he was quite economical, giving away just 33 runs in his 10 overs.

Umesh Yadav and Hardik Pandya — the other pacers in the Indian arsenal — are also in good form.

They would need to produce another consistent performance in order to ensure that the Indians close off the series on a positive note.

The West Indies, meanwhile, will be in an upbeat mood. Thoroughly outplayed in the previous matches, the hosts have finally managed to find some reason to be cheerful.

West Indies skipper Jason Holder led from the front during the fourth ODI with a five-wicket haul and the hosts will be expecting him to deliver a similar performance.

Fellow pacer Alzarri Joseph has also done reasonably well during the series. He picked up two wickets in the second ODI but was a tad expensive which prompted the hosts to drop him from the third match.

However, he enjoyed a successful return to the playing XI in the last game with another two-wicket haul.

The West Indies, however, need to do better in the batting department.

Shai Hope is among the few West Indies batsmen who have shown some form with an 81-run innings during the second ODI. He has struggled a bit since then, but has the ability to post a significant innings once gets going.

West Indies openers Evin Lewis and Kyle Hope have been inconsistent and will surely be eager to post much better contributions in the fifth game.

Jason Mohammed, one of the key batsmen for the hosts in the middle-order, has also not been up to the mark, except for a 61-ball 40 in the third ODI.
