BCCI's announcement of dropping Dhoni had come after the second ODI between India and West Indies ended in a tie.

Earlier, the West Indies were in trouble right from the start after skipper Jason Holder chose to bat.

The home side, led by a brisk half-century from the in-form Rohit Sharma and an unbeaten knock of 33 from captain Virat Kohli, motored to 105 for one in 14.5 overs, to wrap up the contest even before the scheduled break.

It was the West Indies' lowest total in a one-day worldwide against India, and their 10th lowest against any country. The other change saw West Indies beef up their fast bowling at the expense of a batsman - India amassed 377 in the fourth ODI - with Oshane Thomas replacing Chandrapaul Hemraj.

West Indies' T20 skipper Carlos Brathwaite Thursday sweated it out at the Eden Gardens, a ground where his four successive sixes in a World T20 final made him a household name.
