32

Cuttack: After West Indies fantastic innings, India will look to end their year on high and avoid their second successive bilateral series loss at home today.

Earlier, Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bowl first in the crucial series-decider.

While the West Indies chose to go with the same team that played in Vizag, India replaced injured Deepak Chahar with Navdeep Saini.

Moments after a solid start, the West Indies lost both openers with Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami striking for India. Evin Lewis and Shai Hope made their way to the middle. Shai Hope continued to look solid while Evin Lewis had an uncharacteristic start to his innings.

But then the visitors lost wickets in quick succession as bowlers helped India bounce back.

West Indies batting brought back this innings on track with captain Kieron Pollard and Nicholas Pooran. Their solid coordination on-field gave Virat and Co a target of 316 runs.
