India is leading the 5-match series 2-1 after the third match ended in a dramatic tie. West Indies will try its best to level the series while India would like to win and wrap up the series.

They hardly lose or draw any series at home.

The Indian batsmen are in great form led by their skipper Kohli who has scored three hundreds in his last three matches against West Indies. Even Rohit Sharma has scored well in this series.

Dhoni's poor form a concern

Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni has been dropped from the upcoming T20 series against West Indies and the complete Australia tour of India. His poor form and inability to score big runs and finishing might be the cause. Looks like the legends T20 career is almost over.

Meanwhile, he just needs one run to score 10,000 runs in the 50-over format. Bhuvneshwar Kumar needs two wickets to 100 scalps in ODIs.

Pitch condition and weather

This is the first ODI at this venue. The pitch looks flat and full of runs according to Cricinfo. The weather forecast is warm and sunny and very humid today. So the guys have to sweat it out.

Star Sports will cover the match live in India. While the live online stream is available on Hotstar.
