India vs West Indies 5th ODI at Trivandrum: Young Khaleel Ahmed got rid of Rovman Powell for 16 off 39 balls with a short ball as Shikhar Dhawan took the catch in the square-leg boundary and that led to something unusual. Ahmed broke into an unusual celebration where he asked everyone around to keep shut with a finger in his mouth. As Virat Kohli saw that he broke into a laughter. He chuckled after he saw Khaleel behave in that fashion. Also Read - Rishabh Pant, Yuzvendra Chahal Get Into a Banter During Live Chat Session of Kevin Pietersen-Virat Kohli | SEE POST

India will be looking for a victory too on Thursday as Virat Kohli & Co. would want to clinch their 6th straight bilateral ODI series win at home. They lead the series 2-1, with the second match being tied. Khaleel has been impressing everybody with his good form off late, he picked three wickets in the Mumbai ODI as well. Meanwhile, Windies won the toss and surprisingly opted to bat first, knowing very well that they could have problems bowling in the dew. They must have hoped to get a score in excess of 300. But a bad start and losing wickets at regular intervals meant they were at the fear of getting bundled out well before the 50th over.
At the time of filing the copy, Windies were tottering at 87/6 in the 25th over.
