With the northeastern monsoon in full cry, the match could well end up shortened as the the weatherman has predicted a brief thunderstorm in the afternoon and late evening. In the series decider at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram, Indian bowlers put the visitors in a shell very early in the game. The previous spanned 48.1 overs against New Zealand in 2010.

In what was scheduled to be a day/night contest, India wrapped up the match well before dark after dismissing the Windies for 104 in 31.5 overs.

Going into the final ODI, with opener Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu and skipper Kohli in top form, India will like to keep the momentum into the series decider.

Massive no ball. Virat calling Rohit back. Indian batting has been firing on full throttle. Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni have been rested, and Rohit will lead India. The two were in fantastic form in the series.

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.

Captain Jason Holder tried his best to revive his team's innings, but once he fell for the top-score of 25, his mistimed drive off Ahmed only making it as far as mid-off, the writing was on the wall.

Jasprit Bumrah combined with pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar to get two West Indies batsmen in the first two overs.

However, the visitors could possibly miss the services of off-spinner Ashley Nurse, who has been a consistent performer with five wickets from the series.

Nurse will now miss the forthcoming three-match T20I series as well as a result of the shoulder injury he sustained during the fourth game in Mumbai.
