India won the 5th and final ODI match in Thiruvananthapuram by nine wickets and India won the sixth consecutive domestic series after their name. It is also India's second-biggest victory in terms of balls.
Winning the toss, the West Indies 105-run target was won by team India by 9 wickets in 14.5 overs. Vice Captain Rohit Sharma 63 *, then captain Virat Kohli returned unbeaten after scoring 33* runs.
The start of India was very bad and the first blow was in the second over. Opener Shikhar Dhawan was the only one to score 6 runs and lost his wicket. Oshane Thomas bowled his way to the pavilion.
Dhawan has not been able to perform effectively in this series. He did not make a single half-century in the series. He missed the half-century in the fourth ODI and was out after scoring 38 runs. Dhawan was the first to score 4 runs in the first match, in the second and third ODIs he played 29 and 35 runs respectively.
Earlier in this match, Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave India the first breakthrough. He did not give chance to open the openers of the Windies Cowan Powell to the account and got caught out by Dhoni. In the next over, Bumrah gave India the second success by making the ink to beef on zero. Marlon Samuels scored some big shots, but his innings did not last long. Jadeja got Samuels out in the hands of Kohli.
Samuels scored 24 runs. After this Jadeja gave Hetmeyer the lbw to fourth successive success. Hetmeyer returned to the pavilion by scoring a run of 09. Going to Hetmeyer, Rovman Powell, trying to open the ball, tried to play a big shot on Khalil's ball, but the ball went straight into Shikhar Dhawan's hands and on 57, only half of the West Indies pavilion returned. Right now, only 09 runs were added in the total score that Fabien Allan scored 04 runs and caught by Bumrah, Kedar Jadhav caught off the ball.
West Indies captain Jason Holder's reply was also given to the score of 87 runs and he was caught by Khalil Ahmed off Kedar Jadhav. The holders were dismissed by 25 runs. Kimono Paul scored 05 runs by Kuldeep Yadav in the air ball playing the ball and Ambati Rayudu did not make any mistake in catching the ball. Kemar Roach got Jadeja caught by Kedar Jadhav at just five runs on his ball. The last wicket of the Indies dropped as Thomas. Jadeja was bowled by LBW off without opening the account.
Jadeja was the highest wicket-taker from India and he showed the path of the pavilion to four batsmen. Bumrah and Khalil Ahmed had two successes while Bhuvi and Kuldeep Yadav took one wicket each.
