IND VS WI 5th ODI live

Jamaica: Rohit Sharma was bowled by Anthony Martin and Yusuf Pathan followed suit a India lost their seventh wicket in the fifth and last ODI against the West Indies at Sabina Park on Thursday.
Earlier, the needless run out of Virat Kohli and an irresponsible shot by India's skipper Suresh Raina allowed the West Indies to come back into the match.

Kohli scored a sparkling fifty off just 64 balls and was well supported by Sharma's steady knock as the duo put India in a commanding position.

Put into bat by West Indies, India got off to a worst possible start as they lost both openers early. First one to go was Parthiv Patel when he mistimed the pull shot and was spectacularly caught by Windies leg spinner Anthony Martin off Andre Russell. Patel scored just 6 from 11 balls.

Soon to follow him back to the dressing room was fellow opener Shikhar Dhawan who failed to deal with a rising delivery from Windies paceman Kemar Roach to give Ramnaresh Sarwan a straightforward catch in the slips. Dhawan scored 11 from 26 balls which included one four.

Virat Kohli was joined by Manoj Tiwary in the middle, the middle-order duo played some brilliant shots all over the park which included a huge six from Tiway at mid-wicket of the bowling off Darren Sammy.

Kohli and Tiwary added 58 runs between them at a strike rate of over hundred to take India to respectable position before Pollard struck to dismiss Tiwary for 22 and India were left tottering at 3/79.

On probably the fastest pitch to be played on in the series, West Indies skipper Darren Sammy won the toss and chose to bowl first.

For the West Indies Adrian Barath made his way into the West Indian line-up.

After losing the last ODI encounter Team India made a couple of changes with opener Shikhar Dhawan replacing Subramanian Badrinath and R Vinay Kumar also featuring in the starting eleven.
