Team India Celebrate Their Series Win Over Windies

India play the fifth ODI against West Indies on November 1 in Thiruvananthapuram

The final ODI is to be played at the new greenfield stadium in Kerala's Thiruvananthapuram. It's a 3-1 series win for the Indians! Plenty was at stake in the last match, however, nothing worked for the visitors.

In a series that has created a few records of the wrong kind for West Indies, the fifth ODI saw the Caribbean side post the lowest ever total against India.

The two sides now head to Kolkata on Sunday for the first of three T20 internationals.

India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is 18 runs away from completing his 2000 runs in ODIs.

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.

Rohit, who now has the highest ODI score by an Indian cricketer in a calendar year every time since 2013, also reached 1000 runs for 2018 - becoming the second player to do so after Kohli. Rayudu also took a step ahead in cementing his place at No. 4 slot with a fine century in the previous game.

Virat's fortunes were reversed in this ODI series against Windies, though. Spinner Kuldeep Yadav has been minting wickets and there has been no halt to that.

Shikhar Dhawan's indifferent form notwithstanding, Indian top order was hard to crack in the series.

Virat Kohli crushed all talks of Mahendra Singh Dhoni's T20 career coming to an end after he was overlooked for the T20I series against West Indies and Australia.

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

Apart from Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah and Khaleel Ahmed chipped in with two wickets each to derail the Windies innings. It seems like Ashley Nurse Hand is Fractured.
