In-form opener Ajinkya Rahane was the only other Indian batsman who managed to stand up to the West Indies bowlers with a patient innings of 60 runs off 91 deliveries.

Captain Jason Holder says he always backs himself to make an impact up front with the new ball and hopes to continue playing this key role in One-Day Internationals for West Indies.

However, two of the top three fell early, Dinesh Karthik failed and with MS Dhoni struggling to fill that finisher's role on his own, India ended up falling well short of what was required.

West Indies last won a bilateral series against India at home way back in 2006, when the Caribbean team nearly dominated the Men in Blue after they won the series 4-1.

The India vs West Indies 5th ODI will be played at Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica.

Series: After the first match was abandoned due to rain, India were clinical in subsequent games, winning the second and the third ODIs by 105 and 93 runs respectively.

Meanwhile, data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) showed crude output fell in April for the first time this year. The next largest proved oil reserves are in Saudi Arabia with 268 billion barrels and Canada with 173 billion barrels.

India vs West Indies 5th ODI match is set to begin at 9am local time, 7.30pm IST.

For West Indies, he has plundered two centuries, the last coming during the T20 World Cup in the opening match against England.

The twin blows prompted the hosts to become extra cautious and the run rate crawled along at snail's pace as Shai and Jason Mohammed added just 39 runs between them over the next 14.3 overs.

"Obviously I don't have the pace factor like a Kesrick Williams or an Alzarri Joseph but I just try to work with my skills and be as skilful as I possibly can".

The India vs West Indies 5th ODI will be broadcast live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD in English, and Ten 1 HD and Ten 3 in Hindi. The 5th ODI will be broadcast live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD in English, and Ten 1 HD and Ten 3 in Hindi.

If the batting clicks - and all they need is a bit of confidence up front, a strong and fast start - there is a good chance of the West Indies finishing this ODI series against India at level pegging. While free live streaming will be available on SonyLIV.
