India is all set to clash with West Indies at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua on Sunday.India is in roaring form and after the wash out of the first match, registered consecutive victories to earn an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.

The experienced Indian squad is stuck with a problem of plenty and it remains to be seen whether swashbuckling wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant gets a chance or not in the fourth match.

The West Indian team has disappointed their specators and cricket fanatics to a vast extent. The vaunted Indian batting line-up has shred their bowlers to pieces and posted huge scores in the first two ODIs.

Although the Windies bowlers troubled the Indian batsmen on a bouncy pitch in the third ODI, Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni blew the match away by scoring nearly 84 runs in the last 7 overs. The Indian bowlers then choked the Windies for runs and apart from some few streaky shots and heroics, their batsmen were completely flummoxed.

Barring a knock of 81 by Shai Hope in the second ODI, none of the Windies batsmen have been able to make an impact, with the next highest score being Jason Mohammed's 40 in the third game.
