Cricket Match Preview:

Finally, the game at Mumbai panned out like how many pundits had imagined it will be when these two sides were supposed to take on each other. But West Indies showed admirable skills and fearlessness that took Team India by surprise in the first three ODI cricket games. However, the tables turned in the crucial fourth game and India hammered West Indies by a huge margin of 224 runs.

It was a perfect ODI for India at Mumbai. One of their top three batsmen scored a big hundred. Their number four, which has been a big problem for a long time, scored a hundred and their bowlers including young Khaleel Ahmed picked up wickets. Ambati Rayudu, India’s new entrant for the number four slot seems to have made the slot his own with consistent scores in this series. That should come as a huge relief to skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri.

But the game was sealed by Rohit Sharma’s knock of 162, which in itself outscored the total of West Indies 153. His was a typical knock with sedate start and then the flourish, which only Rohit can manage. He completely destroyed the West Indies bowling and helped India to reach a total of 377 runs.

West Indies will be disappointed by their performance as they had the momentum with them when they won the third cricket ODI at Pune. They are still in with a chance to draw the series, but they will have to improve their bowling by a great deal and also avoid run outs, which hampered them in the fourth ODI. They have a chance to do something special because not many teams come to India and not let them win the series.

Cricket Match Information:

India and West Indies will take on each other in the fifth and final ODI of the cricket series between the two sides. India lead the series by 2-1 with just one cricket game left to be played. If West Indies manage to win the last game, they will manage a rare feat of drawing the series in India against India.


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

India, under Virat Kohli’s leadership, is known to change the lineup in almost every game. However, our prediction is that Yuzvendra Chahal might be back for this game in place of Ravindra Jadeja.

Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:

  • Rohit Sharma
  • Shikhar Dhawan
  • Virat Kohli
  • Rishabh Pant
  • MS Dhoni
  • Ambati Rayudu
  • Kedar Jadhav
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Yuzvendra Chahal
  • Bhuvaneshwar Kumar
  • Jasprit Bumrah

West Indies

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

West Indies were hammered in the fourth ODI. Prior to that, they had been excellent with their batting and their bowling had been doing the job. Our prediction is that Sunil Ambris might get the opportunity in the final ODI in place of Keiron Powell, who has looked good without a substantial score in the cricket series.

Here is our prediction of West Indies’s playing XI:

  • Chandrapaul Hemraj
  • Sunil Ambris
  • Shai Hope
  • SO Hetmyer
  • Marlon Samuels
  • Rovman Powell
  • Jason Holder
  • FA Allen
  • Ashley Nurse
  • OC McCoy
  • Kemar Roach

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Virat Kohli had a rare failure in the fourth cricket ODI at Mumbai. That was his only second under 20 score in this year. He would like to help India win the series in the final ODI hence, our prediction is of typical Virat’s knock in the game at Thiruvananthapuram.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

It will be the first cricket ODI at this venue. Only a T20 International game has been played here in 2017 when India took on New Zealand and beat them by 6 runs. It was a rain-curtailed game and India managed to defend 67 runs in 8 overs against New Zealand. The nature of pitch is not known because of the lack of games but any pitch in India is a beautiful batting wicket. Hence, our prediction is of another high scoring cricket game.  

Our Prediction:

India will be favourites to win the game and seal the series for themselves at Thiruvananthapuram. They seem to have got their groove back and it will be difficult for West Indies to make a comeback after the drubbing in Mumbai.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Virat Kohli (IND) – 100+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Kuldeep Yadav (IND) – 3 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Virat Kohli (IND)
