Dravid has amassed 13,288 runs in 164 Tests with 36 centuries and 10,889 runs in 344 ODIs with 12 centuries became only the fifth Indian to be named in the elite list.
Meanwhile, Windies won the toss and opted to bat first which was surprising as Kohli reckoned there would be dew later on in the game and batting would get easier.
Kohli has been ominous form. He recently became the fastest to 10,000 ODI runs and also became the first Indian to slam three consecutive ODI tons.
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.
