Shai Hope & MS Dhoni batting tips – India vs. Windies 5th ODI betting

India vs Windies ODIIndia vs. Windies – Thursday, November 1, from 1.30pm local time at Thiruvananthapuram, India.

IT all comes down to this.

After what has been a surprisingly-engrossing series, India and the West Indies will enter the fifth game of their ODI series with everything still on the line.

After convincingly winning the first ODI in this series, India was expected to walk over the men from the caribbean, but have encountered some unexpected resistance.

The second ODI resulted in an incredible tie as the the Windies chased down 321, then went one better in the third ODI with a convincing 40-run victory over the hosts.

The fourth ODI saw some normality resume in a thumping India victory after posting a first innings total of 377/5, but the series is not won just yet for the home team.

A win for the home team will see India win the ODI series, while if the Windies get up, they will feel like the victors of the series with a tie.

Key players to watch – India vs. Windies 5th ODI

There have been heroes on both sides of the series.

For India, Virat Kohli continues to take his game to a new level, scoring three centuries and averaging an incredible 137 with scores of 140, 154*, 107 and 16.

His teammate at the top of the order, Rohit Sharma, is also in some of the form of his life with two scores in excess of 150 in the last four matches.

For the West Indies, a young man by the name of Shimron Hetmyer has announced himself to the world.

The 20-year-old became the first West Indian to score three ODI centuries in his first 15 matches when he scored a powerful 106 from just 78 balls in the first ODI. He proved the feat was no fluke just days later in the second ODI when he blitzed 94 from 64 balls.

Displaying the full range of strokes at such a young age, against the second-ranked ODI team in world cricket, Hetmyer looks like a player who could lead Windies out of its never-ending mire.

Shai Hope is another man in maroon who has shown top form in this series with scores of 32, 123* and 95 proving his value.

MS Dhoni 5th ODI vs. Windies betting

Most runs for India: +1000
Man of the match: +1700
Top match batsmen: +2200

After an indifferent series with the bat, the Indian keeper could be ready to put in a huge shift with the bat here.

While he hasn’t had many opportunities with the bat as the Indian top order has dominated, we think the Windies may be able to fluke a few more early wickets than usual and give Dhoni more overs at the crease here.

If you think Dhoni can top-score at $11, then he is a big candidate for man of the match betting at $18.

Shai Hope 5th ODI vs. India betting

Most runs for Windies: +350
Man of the match: +1200
Top match batsmen: +900

If there’s one thing that Shai Hope has demonstrated in his young career to date, be it in tests and ODIs, it’s that when he is in form, he can cash in on runs.

Despite an unlucky dismissal in the fourth ODI, Hope is the West Indies’ leading run-scorer in this series and although he has not had a high strike rate, he has been able to build partnerships and deliver bulk runs.

The $4.50 for the West Indies’ top run scorer is value and if the Windies pull off an unlikely win and level this series, he is a huge man of the match contender at $13.
