West Indies will finally have their wish granted when they would get to play on the hard and bouncy pitch in the fifth and the final One-day International at Sabina Park, Jamaica on Thursday.

Reports from Jamaica suggest that a tough batting surface awaits the two teams, something which the West Indian captain Darren Sammy has been yearning for throughout the series.

It has, however come too late for the hosts who are facing a threat of a clean sweep by the Indians on their own home soil.

India lead the five-match ODI series 3-0.

Chief curator Charles Josephs said that the pitch will have more bounce and pace than what has been seen in the series so far.
