11.3 overs: WICKET! R Powell (1) is out, b Khaleel Ahmed, 47/5. What a comeback by Indian bowlers after a few poor shows.

4.2 overs: WICKET! C Hemraj (14) is out, c Ambati Rayudu b Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Windies 20/1

Welcome back for the run chase. Chandrapaul Hemraj has started well and he blasts a four and a six off Bhuvneshwar Kumar. At the other end, Jasprit Bumrah is maintaining it tight.

Kedar Jadhav finishes things in style as India reach 377/5 at the end of 50 overs. Rohit Sharma the star with 162 while Ambati Rayudu gives him great support with 100. West Indies have a huge task in hand. Join us in 40 minutes for the chase. 

Dhoni miscues a lofted shot and Fabian Allen, running back, cannot hold on to it. However, next ball, Dhoni cannot capitalise on the life and flicks a full ball on the pads straight to short fine leg. MS Dhoni c Hemraj b Roach 23 (15). 

WICKET! Superb stuff from Fabian Allen. Rayudu dances down the track but Allen darts a quick ball close to the body, the batsman dabs it to the off side and thinks about a quick single, however, Allen races to the ball, turns and releases it quickly to score a direct hit at the bowler's end. Ends a wonderful knock from Rayudu. Ambati Rayudu run-out Allen 100 (81). 

Dhoni gets hit on the wrist from the throw when Rayudu completed his century. After a short medical time-out, he slams two boundaries off Keemo Paul, one through square third man and the other to long leg.

CENTURY! Finally, after so much effort, Rayudu blasts his third century. He gets there with a tap to point and he hares off for a quick single. He had a chance for a century in Vizag but he has done it in Mumbai.

Ambati Rayudu blasts his fourth six and enters the 90s as he deposits Roach over deep midwicket. The bowler missed his length and the full toss was punished. Can Dhoni compliment Rayudu's approach?

Now, all eyes will be on MS Dhoni after Rohit's dismissal. Can he prove his detractors wrong? He has six overs to show that he is back in form.

WICKET! There will be no 200 for Rohit Sharma. Ashley Nurse gets the wicket. Wide and quick ball, Rohit throws his bat at it and the outside edge flies to short third man who takes the catch. Ends a sensational innings from Rohit. What a player. Rohit Sharma c Hemraj b Nurse 162 (137). 

India have crossed 300 in just the 43rd over. With Rohit starting to tee off, his fourth double century and India crossing 400 might not be too far-fetched.

Seventh 150+ score for Rohit Sharma. What an ODI freak this man is. Paddles the full ball to the fine leg fence and extends his record. What a phenomenon

Rohit is now toying with the bowling here. Blasts Keemo Paul into the deep midwicket stands and carves a yorker length ball to the sweeper cover fence. This is carnage in Mumbai. 

Rohit blasts two fours off Kemar Roach while Rayudu slog sweeps a low full toss outside off to the deep mid wicket fence. Both batsmen are in that zone and we are all set for fireworks.

Rohit Sharma has now broken Sachin Tendulkar's mark of 195 sixes as he blasts Keemo Paul down the ground for his second six. It is starting folks. The carnage is about to begin.

The wheels are coming off the West Indies bowling attack. Rayudu hammers two boundaries as India smash 25 runs in the last two overs. 

Rayudu greets Marlon Samuels, who picked up three wickets in the previous game, with a flat six over long off. He really clobbered that and the partnership is now nearing 150. 

FIFTY! Rayudu hits his 10th fifty. He has been really calm and collected. Now, he must convert this into a big score if the No.4 conundrum for India has to be sorted. 

Rohit Sharma! You star. Gets to his 21st century and in front of home town fans. What a moment. Wife Ritika Sajdeh is beaming away. He has laid the platform for yet another double ton. Buckle up, folks. This is only going to get interesting. 

SIX! Ambati Rayudu continues to ease the pressure off Rohit Sharma by hammering Ashley Nurse over the long on fence. Rohit, meanwhile, is calmly coming closer to his century.

Rayudu and Rohit are growing in confidence. West Indies need a wicket urgently but Rohit is motoring along as he nears a century.

Rohit Sharma is now motoring away with three boundaries off Rovman Powell. He is now entering the zone where he can reach his century and then open up to another huge score. 

Both Rohit and Rayudu are building a steady partnership as India make steady progress. West Indies need to get rid of Rohit quickly. After 25 overs, India are 137/2.

FIFTY! Rohit Sharma slams his 37th fifty. So what if Virat Kohli fails? India still hve Rohit and he has shown the application to survive on this deck. Latches on to a short ball from Keemo Paul and pulls it to the deep mid wicket fence. 

The run-rate has slowed down a bit and the pitch is becoming slightly sluggish to bat on. Chasing a total in excess of 270 might not be easy on this deck. India need a good partnership.

Good over from Keemo Paul. Troubled Rayudu with full deliveries that swung away late outside off but the batsman responds with a cracking drive through cover for a glorious boundary.

OUT! Gone! Brabourne has been stunned into silence. No fourth consecutive ton for Kohli in ODIs. Roach stays wide of the crease and gets this cross-seamed full ball to straighten outside off, Kohli pokes at it and the edge is taken by the keeper. This is almost surreal. Virat Kohli c Shai Hope b Roach 16 (17)

Rohit Sharma is nearing his fifty while Kohli is in great form. Things are once again looking ominous for the West Indies. If they can get either batsman out, it could stall India's momentum. 

Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma both strike boundaries off Keemo Paul as India continue to make good progress. 

OUT! Keemo Paul strikes in his first over. Short ball and Dhawan pulls it hard but straight to the fielder at mid wicket. Kieran Powell takes the catch and cheekily, Paul mocks Dhawan's signature show of strength celebration while taking the catch. Shikhar Dhawan c K Powell b Paul 38 (40)

Both Dhawan and Rohit have gotten their eye on and scoring at a brisk asking rate. West Indies have to break this stand soon. However, the next person who walks in is a certain Virat Kohli, who already has four consecutive centuries in ODIs in India. 

The left-hander is now in full flow. Two consecutive fours off Ashley Nurse have pushed the opening partnership past fifty for the first time in the series. 

SIX! Now Dhawan is looking in great touch as he hoicks a length ball from Roach into the stands at wide long on. India are making great progress

SIX! Now Dhawan also joins in the fun. Poor ball from Holder. Going down the leg side and the left-hander flicks it effortlessly to the deep square leg fence. India are making good progress at 34/0 after six overs

SIX! Monstrous hit from Rohit Sharma and that has gone outside the Brabourne stadium. Advances down the track and hoicks it out of the park. In between, he gets two edges that land safely in front of the slip cordon.

Rohit Sharma hits another boundary but plays out the rest of the over from Jason Holder very cautiously. After two overs, India are 9/0

Rohit Sharma gets off the mark in style as he launches Kemar Roach inside out over extra cover with a boundary off the first ball of the match. The pacer recovers and concedes just five runs in the first over. 

Right, we are all set to begin. Sachin Tendulkar, one of the legends of the game, rings the bell as the game is about to start. That has gotten the crowd going. 

Here are the playing XIs of both sides

India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, K Khaleel Ahmed, Jasprit Bumrah

Windies: Kieran Powell, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shai Hope(w), Marlon Samuels, Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder(c), Fabian Allen, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Keemo Paul

India opt to bat. Kedar Jadhav and Ravindra Jadeja are back. Rishabh Pant misses out and so does Yuzvendra Chahal. For West Indies, Keemo Paul comes in for Obed McCoy.

Will Kedar Jadhav be drafted into the playing XI today? Will Rishabh Pant play as the keeper and 'rest' MS Dhoni? What can one say with the selection conundrum that is prevalent in Indian cricket today? 

A warm welcome to the fourth ODI between India and West Indies from the Brabourne stadium. Virat Kohli is in the form of his life, but somehow the West Indies have managed to stay alive. The scoreline 1-1 is an apt reflection of two sides who have really fought hard. One thinks that the Guwahati ODI, which India won comfortably, was an aberration.
