The fourth One-Day International (ODI) between India and West Indies kicked off on a surprising note when West Indian skipper Dwayne Bravo was accompanied by the entire West Indies team at the time of the toss at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala. The West Indian players had earlier threatened to boycott the fourth game due to an ongoing dispute between the players and the West Indies Players Association (WIPA).

Dwayne Bravo said during the toss that the team was there to support him during tough times. Bravo had earlier written a letter to the WIPA President Wavell Hinds, requesting him for transparency on the deals signed between the WIPA and the West Indies Cricket Board. The visitors had also threatened to boycott the first ODI at Kochi.

After a forced break due to cyclone Hudhud, India and West Indies resume the ODI series with the fourth game at Dharamsala. With the Vishakhapatnam ODI cancelled due to cyclone threat, both teams stayed at Delhi and continued with their practice sessions.
