India is set to take on West Indies in the final ODI of the series and India needs to win the match to ensure that India wins the series. Virat Kohli and his team have to make sure they are at their very best as India have suffered a humiliating loss at the hands of the West Indies team in the last game as they failed to chase a small target of 190 runs.

Kohli has also not performed well in the tournament and has to pull up his socks if India is to win this game. Kohli should be looking to lead from the front as when he gets going then more often than not India end up on the winning side.

The Indian bowlers in this tournament have been extremely good as they have managed to restrict West Indies to low totals which according to Indian batting standards should have been very easy for the Indian batsmen to chase.
