Port of Spain: Jul 5, 2013

Virat Kohli-led India will face a do-or-die situation when they come up against hosts West Indies in the fourth match of the tri-series in the Caribbean.

In this crucial fixture, Dwayne Bravo, who returned after missing out the previous fixture, won the toss and decided to field. India brought back Bhuvneshwar Kumar in place of Shami Ahmed.

Kohli’s tactics during the big-defeat against Sri Lanka did not work and it will be interesting to see how he leads the young pack in the pressure match, where a defeat will virtually ensure their elimination.

West Indies are best placed so far with nine points, courtesy two wins from as many matches while Sri Lanka are second with five points. Both the teams have managed to win a bonus point.

A victory on Friday will keep India alive in the competition. Their defeat would send the hosts into the final and from there, India’s chances to qualify for the final will depend on a lot of ifs and buts.
