After Rohit Sharma’s knock of 162 which led the hosts to 377-5, it was the turn of the bowlers to do their job as Khaleel Ahmed (3/13) and Kuldeep Yadav (3/42) were the impressive picks.

As a result, Holder was the lone survivor in the end as he remained unbeaten on 54 runs as the rest of the batting lineup fell like nine pins.

India 344/4 from 47.1 overs:
WICKET! Run-out! Stunning way to end a fine innings from Ambati Rayudu. Allen, the bowler, runs towards his left, picks up the ball and hits the stumps.
India 344/3 from 47 overs:
HUNDRED! Well played, Ambati Rayudu! The dressing room is on its feet. Kohli is grinning. India's number four has scored a hundred. He dabs one to the point and with Dhoni, he is guaranteed to get a run to reach his third three-figure mark in ODIs.
India 312/3 from 44 overs:
WICKET! No fourth ODI double hundred for Rohit Sharma! Ashley Nurse has struck to end a fantastic innings. He lasted for 137 balls and scored 162 runs to notch up his seventh 150+ score in ODI cricket.

Virat Kohli has won the toss and India have elected to bat as international cricket (men's) returns to Cricket Club of India (CCI) after a while as India take on West Indies in the fourth ODI here on Monday, with the five-match series is still up for grabs.
Kedar Jadhav, who has made a comeback to the Indian side after recovering from an injury, and Ravindra Jadeja have replaced Rishabh Pant and Yuzvendra Chahal in the playing XI while West Indies have picked Keemo Paul to replace Obed McCoy.
While Virat Kohli has been a standout performer in the series with a hat-trick of hundreds, the Jason Holder-led unit has put in a fine show, with disallowing India wins in the last two games, with a tie in Vizag and a 43-run win in Pune to level the series.
While Kohli's men will be keen to take an unassailable lead at the Brabourne Stadium, the visitors will be eager to keep India win-less in the three consecutive games. Although Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer will once again hold a key to Windies batting, the openers and the experienced Marlon Samuels will need to fire with the bat.
For India, while Kohli-led top order has largely been consistent, middle-order's lack of consistency is a cause of concern and with Kedar Jadhav back in the mix, India will be hoping to plug a hole in the middle-order.
India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav.
West Indies: Jason Holder (Captain), Fabian Allen, Sunil Ambris, Devendra Bishoo, Chanderpaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Ashley Nurse, Keemo Paul, Rovman Powell, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels.
