Toss: Jason Holder, the Windies captain, won the toss and opted to bat against India in the fourth One-Day International at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North South, Antigua on Sunday (July 2).
India: IN: Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami. OUT: Yuvraj Singh, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Windies: IN: Alzarri Joseph. OUT: Miguel Cummins.
What they said
Jason Holder: We will bat first. The wicket seems a bit better than what we got in the last game. We have been bowling first so far in the series. We have one change – (Alzarri) Joseph comes in for (Miguel) Cummins. It is good to have the rotation system in the team. The wicket was a bit up and down in nature last time, probably it would do a bit more at the start today as well. We have to get past that and push on thereafter.
Virat Kohli: We in fact wanted to bowl first and see how we end up batting on this wicket in the second dig. Yuvi got a bit of hammy (hamstring injury) in the last game, so DK comes in. Jadeja comes in for Ash. Shami also comes in for Bhuvneshwar. We want to be ruthless in our game as a side. Even though we were put under the pump in the last game, we are glad we came out on top.

Series: After the first match was washed out due to rain, India have been clinical in subsequent games, winning the second and the third ODIs by 105 and 93 runs respectively. A win here and India will take a winning 3-0 up in the five-game series.
Conditions: There was rain earlier in the day. The weather has cleared for now, but the forecast is not promising. The pitch has some moisture in it, which should help the pacers initially.
