India and West Indies are ready to lock horns in the fourth ODI of the five-match series in Mumbai on Monday. After three matches, the series is evenly poised after both teams registered one victory each, with the second ODI ending as a tie.
The Men in Blue, who won the series opener comprehensively by eight wickets, will be looking to turn things around after two below-par performances against a team which is ranked ninth in this format. The team management will be desperate for the batting lineup to click in the all-important clash as, until now, it is only captain Virat Kohli who is doing bulk of the scoring for the team. In the bowling department, there are not many changes expected as the team looked decent in the field in the previous game.
On the other hand, West Indies are having a time of their life in this series as they could've easily had a 2-1 lead going into the fourth match – which is not the case – but even then the team management will be more than satisfied with the overall performance against a top-quality opposition.
In the batting department, the team will be relying on in-form wicketkeeper-batsman Shai Hope and middle-order batsman Shimron Hetmeyer to do bulk of the scoring, whereas the pressure is mounting on veteran all-rounder Marlon Samuels to deliver with the bat, especially in an inexperienced batting lineup. In the bowling department, the team will be relying heavily on the pacer unit
