India and West Indies will faceoff in the 5th and final ODI of the series in the coastal city of Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala.

India is leading the series 2-1 after a Rohit Sharma special with support from Ambati Rayudu and Khaleel Ahmed took India to their biggest win over the Windies by 224 runs.

Windies were literally blown out of the Brabourne stadium during the match as neither their bowling, nor batting was upto par.

India, on the other hand, has finally found an answer to their no 4 spot conundrum in Rayudu, who scored a brilliant century. On the bowling side of things, Khaleel Ahmed has produced a selection headache for the team management, thanks to his brilliant bowling in Brabourne. 

Windies need to find some inspiration and fight in the last ODI of the series to stop India from ending their 2018 in ODIs with a win. Windies need their current in form players to come good when needed and draw the series 2-2.

India will look to go for the kill in the last ODI with the captain and vice captain leading the charge. 

Watch out for an entertaining match between these two nations.
