Windies failed to put up a fight with the bat in the final ODI game of the five-match series which was led by India 2-1 before the game in Thiruvananthapuram. The Caribbean team was skittled out for just 104 runs after electing to bat first. India’s opening bowlers claimed a wicket in each of their first over to leave Windies reeling at 3/2. Marlon Samuels’ counter-attack didn’t last long before he was dismissed by Ravindra Jadeja.
Jadeja claimed a four-wicket haul while left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed bagged a couple. Kuldeep Yadav accounted for only one wicket as the chinaman spinner was turned down despite taking reviews as they stood as umpire’s call. Skipper Jason Holder’s 25-run knock was the highest individual score for the Windies in their misery outing. The score of 104 is now their lowest total in ODI cricket against India as they put up a worse effort than the 121-run innings they had managed in the 1997 Port of Spain ODI.

This total of 104 by the Windies is also their 4th lowest in Asia and the 3rd lowest in India. They were bundled out for just 61 in the 2011 ODI series in Bangladesh. The Windies team managed only 80 in the Champions Trophy game against Sri Lanka also at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

During the 1996 World Cup, the West Indian side was shot down for just 93 by a lower-ranked team Kenya. This total of 104 is also the 3rd lowest by any team against India in India. The New Zealand team was bowled out for only 79 in a series-decider game in Vizag a couple of years ago. Earlier in 2010, the Kiwis were bowled out for 103 in the Chennai ODI. India completed a 5-0 whitewash over the visiting side with that result.
