Opener Rohit Sharma slammed a brilliant century to lift India after they lost skipper Virat Kohli for early in the 4th ODI in Mumbai. He departed after making 162 runs while Rayudu slammed his 3rd ODI hundred today, against West Indies. 

Rohit, who also established over 100 runs partnership with Ambati Rayudu, had hit a boundary to reach his 21st ODI century. 

Meanwhile, Kohli, who registered three consecutive centuries in the previous three ODIs, was dismissed for just 16 runs. 

India got the required start as openers Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan played a speedy inning to set a high score for the Windies. But Dhawan departed after contributing 38 runs and later Kohli also was sent back to the pavilion, which reduced the average.

Earlier, Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bat against West Indies, who registered a stunning 43-run win in the third ODI to level the series 1-1.

After winning the toss, Kohli said, "They (Windies) play fearless cricket, we are not taking anything lightly."

He also added, "Considering all the factors, giving our bowlers the best time to bowl was also the decision behind to bat first. We have known from game one."

Windies captain Jason Holder said, "We are just looking forward to the game today. This is an important game."

For India, Ravindra Jadeja has been included at the place of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kedar Jadhav is back replacing Rishabh Pant.
