India and West Indies will look to break the stalemate in the series which is currently locked at 1-1 as West Indies won the third match in Pune on Saturday.

The match will be played in Mumbai, but at the CCI owned iconic Brabourne Stadium and India will be looking to get back on the winning path and take the lead in the series. Virat Kohli will look to continue his good form and equal Kumar Sangakkara’s record of four consecutive ODI centuries in this match.

However, a bigger headache for him is his middle order which failed to back him up in Pune, as he played a lone warrior innings, while Ambati Rayudu and Rishabh Pant got out after a start and MS Dhoni, well continued his poor form with the bat.

The same goes for the fast bowling as well, where Jasprit Bumrah picked four wickets, while Khaleel Ahmed and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, along with Chahal went for runs like a leaky faucet. Virat Kohli has limited number of matches to solve this conundrum.

West Indies, on the other hand, will be upbeat after their win in Pune ODI and Jason Holder will look to capitalize on the momentum they have. Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer and Ashley Nurse have been fantastic so far in the series and this fourth ODI will make a very interesting game of cricket.
