West Indies spinner Ashley Nurse ruled out of T20 series vs India

The tourists were dismissed in 31.5 overs at Thiruvananthapuram, captain Jason Holder top-scoring with 25.

"It was a clinical performance". Virat Kohli, India's captain, wasn't too displeased, since he would have preferred not to bowl under lights - he predicted dew would be a "massive factor" in the evening. However, despite the scoreline, the young West Indies team can not be ruled out yet.

But he became the first of four victims for Jadeja and the left-armer returned to mop up the tail, finishing with figures of 4-34. Windies Skipper Jason Holder confirmed at the Toss, that Nurse has been ruled out of the entire Tour.

Apart from Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah and Khaleel Ahmed chipped in with two wickets each to derail the Windies innings.

They two sides next clash in a T20 series with the first match scheduled in Kolkata on Sunday.

India have registered yet another emphatic ODI series victory at home.

If India wins the 5th ODI, it will be their 8th consecutive bilateral series win against the West Indies. They hardly lose or draw any series at home. "It won't happen all the time, but when I'm going, I want to keep going longer", said Kohli.

Rohit, who now has the highest ODI score by an Indian cricketer in a calendar year every time since 2013, also reached 1000 runs for 2018 - becoming the second player to do so after Kohli.

"I don't play for awards, just to impact the series and help the team win". Rohit eventually went on to smash an unbeaten half-century and fittingly finished the game. He went past Sachin Tendulkar at CCI during the fourth ODI and is only behind MS Dhoni among Indians.
