  • MS Dhoni One Run Away From Scoring 10,000 ODI Runs

Thiruvananthapuram, India - Captain Virat Kohli on Thursday picked out paceman Khaleel Ahmed and batsman Ambati Rayudu as emerging stars after India sealed an easy one-day worldwide series win over the West Indies.

The India captain was greeted with the loudest of cheers when he strode on to the ground in as early as the second over, after Thomas, only in his second game, had Shikhar Dhawan playing on. Jason Holder fought a lone battle for some time before being dismissed by Khaleel Ahmed.

It took India fewer than 15 overs to chase down that modest target, with Rohit Sharma hammering an unbeaten 63 from 56 balls to seal a nine-wicket victory.

India opener Dhawan's run of poor scores continued as he chopped on a delivery from Thomas to be out for four, going through the five-match series without a half-century.

"We just want these guys to build on this".

However, even a draw in the series for West Indies would a great achievement, considering India's dominance in the 50-over format at home.

The prolific right-hander became the quickest to 10,000 ODI runs in his 205th innings in Visakhapatnam ODI that ended in a tie last week.

After Winfrey's speech, Abrams climbed the stage to join a discussion and was greeted by chants from the audience. Abrams' campaign has attracted support former President Barack Obama, who is rallying in the state on Friday.

Pacer Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are expected to dismantle the Windies top order in the initial overs, while Khaleel Ahmad, who was a surprise package in Mumbai with figures of 3/13, could be a crucial support for his seniors.

The two sides now head to Kolkata for the first of three Twenty20 internationals on November 4.

The tail survived just long enough for Jadeja, who took a five-over break after an unbroken first spell of eight overs, to return and bag two more wickets to finish with 4 for 34.

India vs West Indies, 5th ODI match will begin at 13:30 IST (1.30 pm IST).

MATCH REFEREE: B.C. Broad (England).
