India vs West Indies | Four Wins, A Solitary Loss - India's Last 5 ODIs at Chennai Paint Pretty Picture

With a 2-1 victory in the T20I series over the West Indies, the focus for Team India shifts to the ODIs, starting December 15 at Chennai. This will be Virat Kohli & Co’s first 50-over encounter in close to four months, and since then the management has gone in for a few changes in the squad.

Also, India play an ODI at the MA Chidambaram Stadium after a gap of two years where the team boasts of an excellent record. In the last five encounters here, Team India have won four. With momentum on their side, there is no reason why India can’t pull off another win on their happy hunting ground.

Here is a look at last five ODIs at this venue:

India managed to reach 227/6. But that wasn’t enough. Pakistan opener Nasir Jamshed slammed 101 and took his team home comfortably.
