i really thing this lost has done good for indian players because i think they were very complacent in this 4th one day match and west indies being half down around 100 runs still they were again able to make 250,shows the lack of discipline as well as some worries for indian bowling as this tale has given us problem in the two games back to back. i dont really want to critisize the team as i feel one or two losses come here and ther e but this will rather help our team to rethink and get their act together once again. now this make last one dayer very interesting. share your view and your views are welcomed. regards.

Yes they did not live up to the expectations of millions of their fans and after having westindies half down for 100 on the board they should have captilised and taken control of the match.....they definately are inexperienced but after wrapping up the series they should have that extra confidence and should have shown that more maturity...but never teh less they will learn from mistakes and will definately come back in the 5th odi....they played well in teh 1st three odi and did not do well in the 4th....so its not right to blame them right away...lets wait and see what happens in the 5th odi.....my best wishes with them and hope they make us proud again....

yeah my friend i totally agree... i m not at all blaming them ...because they have shown terrific performance in first three odi's and have one them handsomely. so no doubt that they didnt play that well and outplayed by westindies in this last one day but they would definitely come back and would win it 4-1 that i m sure of. i just want to see manoj tiwari playing in the middle order because he is a middle order batsman and would do his best at his favourite position only. regards. keep mylotting. :)

Hi shailesh, I agree with you this loss is a good wake up call to complacent India. This is really a India A team and they could win the series only because Windies are in turmoil. First as you rightly pointed out India allowed the opponent on mat to rise up and inflict a knock out punch twice in succession which no International team of substance can afford. They got out of it first time due to brilliance of Rohit Sharma but second time they were not so lucky. Lot was expected from Manoj Tiwary but his 2 runs scored of 21 balls indicate that he does not belong here. His exploits are limited to IPL and domestic cricket. Hope India gets this wake up call and strike back in last match to show the world that their series win was not just the flash in the pan.

yeah msdivkar i totally with you,i think this wake up call should make them think about their strategy also because i didnt like the fact that manoj tiwari did open the batting.he isnt a opener as he doesnt even open in domestic cricket.and if india didnt have any opener then in yesterday's match i think virat kohli should have had opened as he has done this before and done it successfully also. apart from that i think tiwari deserves one or two more opportunities to prove himself and he should be given 3,4 matches atleast because it would be very harsh on him to decide his abilities on one or two performances. lets see what happens in last oneday.whether india comes up with better and strong performance or not. regards. keep mylotting. :)

ya surely the match refelected the inexperience of Indian players. but we cant take the credit away from WI for their good bowling. Actually India rested some players from the second order team also, so beating that team doesnt mean a lot. hope that Gayle will be back in test and the matches will become more interesting then.

I was half expecting a defeat for India in the 4th ODI. at the hands of WI. Somehow the series has not appealed to me as a genuine contest. First 3 ODIs have been in India's bag though not very comfortably. In the 4th a defeat by more than 100 runs at the same WI team! Difficult for me to digest. We were found vulnerable against spin! Cannot believe. I have always been expressing that our players succumb to heroics. Badrinath and Tiwary, who were acclaimed batsmen post IPL have perished without showing their mettle. They ought to have been more careful to consolidate their chance. Yousuf Pathan has been consistently failing contrary to the reputation of his hard hitting prowess. Raina also could not show the consistency as expected of a skipper. Let us hope they will come good again in the 5th ODI at least.
