India vs West Indies, 5th ODI

Posted July 07, 2017

Jason Holder's men can take confidence from the fact that they dismantled the Indian batting order to register their first win of the series in 4th ODI.

Ravindra Jadeja too played an atrocious shot, resulting in his dismissal, which exposed India's tail to a crunch situation.

Captain Holder was the Windies' hero, taking ODI-best figures of 5-27 - including the scalp of opposite number Virat Kohli and two wickets in the last over - to reduce India's lead to 2-1 with the final game to come.

After winning the fourth match and opening-up the series, the West Indies will be seeking back-to-back triumphs in a bid to tie their five-match series with India and share the Royal Stag Cup one-day worldwide series against India at Sabina Park today.

West Indies, on the other hand, have nothing to lose and their win at Antigua will keep them in good stead for the final ODI.

Virat Kohli: We're playing with the same team, we made a decision to retain the same side for the last two games.

Lay off honest Tomic, Wilander says
He claims he wants to play for 10 more years in order to earn enough money so he would never have to work again after that. The cheeky jibe came from American Coco Vandeweghe, who has recently enlisted Australian Cash to help guide her career.

Microsoft to reorganize sales and marketing teams

Portugal beat Mexico to Confederations Cup third place
Manchester United and Barcelona target Nelson Semedo was given his marching orders immediately after the interval. Mexicans in the semi-finals lost the German national team 1: 4, interrupting their series of 7 unbeaten games.

West Indies selectors have recalled explosive veteran opening batsman Chris Gayle for the one-off T20 worldwide against India at Sabina Park. That isn't great reading, and a couple of those innings were of the 80s era, where a run rate of around four was considered to be pretty great.

Gayle is the only change to the squad that swept Afghanistan last month, replacing Lendl Simmons who had scores of six, 17 and 15 in the three-match series.

The live broadcast of the 5th ODI match between India and West Indies will start at 07:30 PM IST on Thursday.

Fellow pacer Alzarri Joseph has also done reasonably well during the series.

West Indies reach 205/9 against India in Jamaica, Shai Hope top scoring with 51 - will they manage to hold off India again?

What needs to improve for the West Indies in the 5 ODI, however, is the batting. The 5th ODI will be broadcast live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD in English, and Ten 1 HD and Ten 3 in Hindi. Live coverage of the game is available on Sky Sports 3 and Sky Sports 3 HD.
