India and West Indies will square off for one last time in the ongoing five-match ODI series in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala today. India have the momentum having crushed West Indies in the fourth ODI in Mumbai to regain the lead. The hosts already have one hand on the trophy and should they win today, will record their sixth straight series win on home turf.

West Indies have shown the fight. They are a vastly improved side than that was on display in the preceding two-Test series which they lost 0-2. They would hope the Mumbai performance was just an anomaly and aim to square off the series.
