Windies Vs India Fifth ODI at Jamaica Match Preview
Question in detail
WI Vs Ind 5th ODI, match preview: Moving into the last game of the 5-match ODI series, the hosts set themselves in a position where they can eye leveling the series. If not in a comfortable stead, they are now unfazed of losing the series 4-0. The relieved man Jason Holder roars with his fifer that made India concede 11-run defeat in the last game. He is now claiming to level the series 2-2. Is it that easy? At least, Holder believes so. India, on the other hand, would like to forget the last game.
The loss in the 4th ODI at Antigua was disappointing. Yes, it was! Excuses like we didn't bat to our true potential raise a question, even bigger on team India, a side that boasts of some big names in the batting line-up. Failing to chase down an easily-gettable 190 is all the way regretful, no matter how the conditions were to be like or what the opposition's strategy was on that particular day. More often than not, the team does have to win, particularly when two batsmen contribute 114 out of 190 that were needed to win. What's done is done. India's potential to win the series is still undoubted. All they have to do is to play their natural game in West Indies Vs India 5th ODI.
Leaving the past woes behind and playing the next game with a positive mindset would be possibly the best strategy to finish the things off the way India started the series. There is nothing to panic about; however what India will be pondering ahead of West Indies Vs India 5th ODI is a few reasonable changes to the squad. Rishabh Pant, who has been devoid of even a single chance in the series so far, is most likely to make his debut in the next game. Yuvraj Singh and Dinesh Kartik have a question mark on their final spot in the playing XI. MS Dhoni, who once largely entitled to be the world's best finisher, now seems to be fading out the edge of his batting. Apparently as he is batting at present, Dhoni's finishing skills are done and dusted. His 114-ball 54 in the 4th ODI was of no count as it couldn't power India to win the match.
Will Team India seal the series beating WI in the 5th and last ODI?
