Bhuvneshwar Kumar needs two wickets to 100 scalps in ODIs.

On the other hand, West Indies' fielding coach Nic Pothas said, "We didn't execute on our plans as well as we had in the previous game".

It is also noteworthy that former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is just one run short from becoming the fifth batsman to aggregate 10,000 ODI runs for India. Ambati Rayudu has made the number 4 spot his own after his century in the last game solving India's middle order woes. They lead the series 2-1, with the second match being tied.

With a staggering average of 151, scoring 453 runs under his belt, the explosive right-hander was deservingly awarded Man of the Series as he continued his stellar run in the white-ball format.

Chasing 105, India lost Shikhar Dhawan (6) in the second over. He made most of that reprieve as he hit five boundaries and struck five imperious sixes. Kohli took 205 innings to achieve the landmark.

West Indies T20 squad: Carlos Brathwaite (captain), Fabian Allen, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Evin Lewis, Obed McCoy, Ashley Nurse, Keemo Paul, Khary Pierre, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Andre Russell, Sherfane Rutherford, Oshane Thomas.

Skipper Jason Holder top-scored with 25 to raise hopes of a West Indies fightback but the rest of the batting folded. MS Dhoni could not believe after he saw the ball pitched in line and was crashing onto the stumps.

Samuels' resistance ended in the 12th over when he fell to a soft dismissal of Jadeja for 24, spooning a catch to skipper Virat Kohli. The team that showed stoic performance during the entire series crumbled against the Indian bowlers in the last match.

With the northeastern monsoon in full cry, the match could well end up shortened as the the weatherman has predicted a brief thunderstorm in the afternoon and late evening.
