Summary

India thrashed West Indies in the last two ODI's thereby winning the series 3-1. West Indies put up a great fight in the first three ODI's but could not repeat their performance in last two. The focus of the series now shifts to the T20 Internationals.

 

Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayudu all scored centuries in the series. Virat is rested for T20's and in his absence, Rohit Sharma will lead the side. MS Dhoni has been controversially dropped from the squad.  Khaleel Ahmed, Bhubaneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah all contributed with the ball.

 

Kieron Pollard returns to the West Indies squad for the T20 series which will boost their batting line up. But it remains to be seen how much confident they are after being brutally defeated in the ODI series.

 

India vs West Indies will be played on November 4 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The match will start at 7 PM IST. We have a look at the squads of both the teams here.
