Series is leveled 1-1 and here we have the two teams locking horns for the 4th ODI match. The 3rd ODI match was called off due to cyclone. The venue for this ODI is picturesque Dharamsala! As International cricket returns to this beautiful hill station almost after two years, one must not miss even a single moment of this enthralling contest. Get glued to the TV screens as you can enjoy live telecast on Star Sports with English and Hindi commentary. Also enjoy live cricket streaming on Star Sports official website.

After losing the first ODI miserably, the Indian team bounced back with a comprehensive win in the second ODI. Batting first India scored 263 runs losing seven wickets. It was good to see Virat returning to some good form. He scored 62 runs from 78 balls. Suresh Raina contributed equal runs in 60 balls. We saw a blast in the end by MS Dhoni with 51 runs from 40 balls. Taylor took three wickets for West Indies.

In reply, the visitors started off well with a 64 runs opening partnership. They lost wickets at regular intervals and fell short of 48 runs to Indian total. Smith scored a brilliant 97 off 97! Pollard scored 40 from 50 deliveries. Shami shined with four wickets while Sir Jadeja clinched three. Amit Mishra was impressive with two wickets.

Akshar Patel has been added into the Indian squad for last two ODIs. He has been highly acclaimed for his good all-round display while playing for his IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab. He comes in handy with his batting and bowling. One might say he is similar to Ravindra Jadeja. Hence unless and until Jadeja is rested or its a very spin friendly pitch; its highly unlikely that Akshar would play today.

On one hand we are just few months away from ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, India is yet to decide an ideal opening pair. Shikhar Dhawan has seen loads of ups and downs in his form. Rohit Sharma looks good with him batting up the order. Rahane is again not an ideal choice due to his low strike rates. Lot of confusion ahead for MS Dhoni for the World Cup preparations. Not only in the batting but also in the bowling line up. 

Teams around the world trying too many permutations and combinations to settle down to the ideal line up! Nothing new before a Cricket World Cup. Meanwhile a photo of team India's arrival at Dharamsala.

After a disastrous performance in 1st ODI, Indian team is all geared up for some uplift in their performance now. Watch India vs West Indies 2nd ODI live streaming online with Star Sports website. Also catch live telecast on Star Sports TV network in India with live Hindi and English commentary.

Surprisingly the tourists West Indies outplayed number one ODI team in all departments. It was more than a comprehensive win for the West Indies team. They would love to continue from hereon with more wins. That raises more concerns for the Indian team.

It was assumed that West Indies team would suffer in absence of Gayle and Narine. But there hasn't been any signs of setback in the team. The team heavily depends now on skipper Bravo, Samuels, Pollard and many more to name. And they have delivered well in the first ODI.

India is eager to level the series at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium. The pitch faced a lot of criticism lately but now things seem to be settled. After a humiliating defeat in the first ODI at Kochi, what would be going through Dhoni's mind?

He supported his bowlers but let us agree to the fact that they heavily leaked runs. The pacers clinched wickets but they bowled too many loose balls. Spinners failed completely with leaking loads of runs. Its time for them to pull up their socks.

In terms of batting, Rayudu is yet to fire with all guns. Kohli has now seen a too long patch of bad form. Dhawan scored well but he never looked the blaster we knew. Raina failed while Dhoni couldn't drag it for too long. Rahane needs to score quickly if he has to open the innings. A lot relies on the batting form of all these stars not only for this series but for the ICC World Cup 2015 preparations.

Will Dhoni include Kuldeep Yadav remains a question? Meanwhile Ishant Sharma has been called back for the rest of this series. This might add some confidence into the bowling line up. Let us wait and watch what unfolds in the second ODI.
