The West Indies showed fighting spirit in the first two ODIs before finally winning the third at Visakhapatnam to keep the five-match series alive. India lead the series 2-1.
The Caribbean side, however, have already received a setback with in-form batsman and leading scorer of the series Darren Dravo ruled out due to a hamstring injury. West Indies would expect some runs from the openers, who have failed to score in tandem. The highest opening wicket partnership for them has been 18 that was between Lendl Simmons and Adrian Barath.
Captain Sammy has said the team will miss the classy left-handed batsman but said it would give an opportunity for someone else to step up and take charge.
A lot has already been said about the form of Indian captain Virender Sehwag and ace batsman Gautam Gambhir, who got out to first ball at Motera. The Delhi duo are yet to shine in the series. Suresh Raina will be another one looking for runs after scores of 5, 0, 2 in three successive outings.
Rohit Sharma has been the stand out Indian batsman so far in absence of key players Sachin Tendulkar, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, scoring three consecutive fifties, including an unbeaten 90 in Visakhapatnam and 95 in Ahmedadbad.
India will likely to give chance to Irfan Pathan who has been inducted in the squad for the last two ODIs.
