IND vs WI: Team India to win another ODI series

Team India is ahead in the current one-day series against the West Indies 2-1. A match of the series of five one-day matches was tied. By winning the last and fifth ODI match played at Thiruvananthapuram, India has a great opportunity to win the series.

The Indian team will arrive on Thursday with the intention of winning another fifth and final one-day match against the West Indies, to name another domestic series. Last played in January 1988 in Thiruvananthapuram University Stadium, where the team of the Indies had won 9 wickets. At that time the West Indies team was considered very strong.

The current series will be played at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram. Which will be the first one-day international match played at this stadium. India had lost the last ODI series against South Africa in 2015, and since then, their invincible campaign continues in home country. India are ahead in the five-match series 2-1, which also has a match tie.

Team India, however, faced a tough challenge from the West Indies during the series, including the defeat in the third ODI in Pune. It was West Indies's first win over India. Although rain has been predicted during the match on Thursday, although the rain has been predicted.

Virat Kohli-led Indian team returned after losing in Pune, in the fourth ODI in Mumbai, the opposition team was truncated with 224 runs and the team would hope that they will keep in this target even in the fifth ODI.

The last ODI in Thiruvananthapuram was also played between India and the West Indies, and then the West Indies won the easy win. Jason Holder's team would like to equip the series with inspiration from the veteran team of that time.

Looking at the World Cup to be held in England in June next year, the two teams are trying to fix their combination through this series. Kohli and Rohit Sharma are in the best form, and in the series three and two centuries have been rooted respectively.

Ambati Rayudu, who got captain's support, also had a century in the last match. The rest of the batsmen have failed to perform as expected. Opener Shikhar Dhawan has not been able to take advantage of good start, while veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni has also been facing a poor form with the bat.

Dhoni, who missed the place in the Indian team announced for the T-20 series in Australia, would also be expected to do well with the bat, while he is performing well behind the wicket. Dhoni needs only one run to complete 10000 runs from India.

He has scored 174 runs from the side of Asia XI. The return of Jaspreet Bumrah has strengthened India's bowling attack and they have proven their worth in the last two matches. Young left-arm fast bowler Khalil Ahmed bowled superbly at the Brabourne Stadium.

Kohli will be expected to perform better than Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has not been able to live up to expectations. Spinners have troubled the Caribbean batsmen. In front of Kuldeep Yadav, most of the West Indies batsmen have been batting, while Yuswendra Chahal was given out in the last match and Ravindra Jadeja was given a place in his place.

On the other hand, after the loss in Test matches, the team has performed fluctuating in ODIs. Shimron Hetmayer and Inky Hope have been most affected. Both have so far scored a century each. Captain Jason Holder has shown that he can face Indian spinners well, but other batsmen have been battling.
