India and West Indies will square off in the upcoming three-match ODI series which will begin on December 15 at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chepauk. Virat Kohli's Indian cricket team have dominated the Windies and times have changed drastically, with the West Indies having dominated at the beginning. This will be the last ODI series of the decade for both India and West Indies and they will be aiming to end the year on a high. Ahead of the encounter in Chennai, here are some of the numbers that both teams will be eager to keep an eye on.

10 - A series win for Virat Kohli and the Indian cricket team against the West Indies will be their 10th straight win against the Men from the Caribbean. India have won a bilateral ODI series since 2007 when they won 3-1 at home. In this period, India have won three bilateral series in the West Indies.

62- After playing 130 games against each other, both India and West Indies have won 62 matches. A win for India will give them a positive head-to-head ratio in ODIs against the Windies for the first time.

7 - Number of wins for India at the MA Chidambaram stadium out of 13 ODIs. Kohli's side have won four out of the last five ODIs at this venue with one loss coming against Pakistan in 2012. 13 - Number of years since West Indies last defeated India in a bilateral ODI series. The Windies defeated India 4-1 in the 2006 series when Rahul Dravid was the captain of the team.

1 - Number of centuries Virat Kohli needs to reach 10 centuries against West Indies. Kohli will become the first individual in history to have 10 or more centuries against one opposition in ODIs. He is currently level on nine centuries with Sachin Tendulkar, who has achieved it against Australia.
