Pace and spin sweep West Indies to victory

West Indies struck with pace and spin to take the last six wickets for 66 runs and win the fifth and final one-day international against India by 19 runs on Sunday.
India, chasing West Indies' score of 255 for six, were all out for 236 in 48 overs to hand the hosts their fourth successive victory in the series after India had won the first match.
Opening batsman Virender Sehwag had put India in control with his innings of 95 off 103 deliveries but new-ball bowler Jerome Taylor then returned to the attack with a burst of three for eight in four overs to wrestle the West Indies back into the game.
Earlier, a second successive unbeaten half-century by Dwayne Bravo boosted the West Indies after the hosts were sent into bat first by India.

Lara wants to extend winning streak

Windies cricket captain Brian Lara has vowed that todays final Digicel One-Day International series contest against India, at the Queens Park Oval in Port-of-Spain would not produce a complacent display by his side.
Since he was reappointed as the Windies skipper a month ago, Lara led the regional team to a 5-0 triumph over Zimbabwe in a recent home one-day contest. He declared on Thursday that this weekends matches would be his last international appearances in front of his home crowd.
Windies Test squad: Brian Lara (Captain), Christopher Gayle, Sewnarine Chattergoon, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Wavell Hinds, Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith, Denesh Ramdin, Dave Mohammed, Corey Collymore, Jerome Taylor
India Test squad: AB Agarkar, MS Dhoni, R Dravid (Captain), Harbhajan Singh, M Kaif, MM Patel, SK Raina, V Sehwag, S Sreesanth, AR Uthappa, Yuvraj Singh

The Venue

Trinidad

Queen's Park Oval is generally thought of as the most picturesque of the old grounds in the West Indies. It is also the largest, accomodating 25,000 spectators in comfort. Home of the Queen's Park Cricket Club (QPCC) since 1896
Queen's Park has been described as a classic ground with breathtaking backdrops, most notably, the northern hills. No section of the crowd captures the spirit of Trinidad than the 'Concrete Stand', renamed the Learie Constantine Stand. The fans are avid followers of the game, excitable and generally enjoy their cricket, led by a character affectionately known as 'Blue Food'.
