BY AP • July 2, 2017

ST. JOHN'S, Antigua (AP) Captain Jason Holder took 5-27 as West Indies beat India by 11 runs in a low-scoring, fourth one-day international on Sunday to stay alive in the series.

India leads 2-1 with the fifth and final game on Thursday at Kingston, Jamaica.

Neither team impressed with the bat at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium at North Sound.

West Indies scored only 189-9 after winning the toss and choosing to bat. It turned out to be enough as India lost its last five wickets for only 19 runs - collapsing from 159-5 in the 45th over to 178 all out with two balls to spare.

India opener Ajinkya Rahane hit 60 off 91 balls, including seven fours, and Mahendra Singh Dhoni labored to 54 from 114 balls with one boundary. Dhoni's dismissal left India needing 14 to win in the final over with two wickets left.

Holder, who took his five-for in 9.4 overs, claimed the final wicket of Mohammed Shami.

Evin Lewis and Kyle Hope were joint top-scorers for West Indies on 35. Umesh Yadav took 3-36 and Hardik Pandya 3-40.
