It is not easy to work out what either team has to gain from the two remaining matches, so the potential rewards stray into the realm of records and statistics. For India, a 4-1 series win will allow them to retain their rank atop the ODI table, while a whitewash would send them two points clear of second-ranked South Africa.
Virat Kohli has more time to bed himself in as captain ahead of the Australia tour where he will lead in the first Test, while the likes of Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu and Akshar Patel can further strengthen their World Cup case.
