IND vs WI 3rd T20I Match Preview and Fantasy Prediction
West Indies tour of India
3rd T20: IND vs WI
After clinching the T20I series against West Indies in the 2nd T20 International of the series, India will look forward to whitewash the Caribbeans at Eden Gardens. West Indies on the other hand delivered a great performance in the last match but fell short of just 8 runs. Expect them to come hard in the final T20I so that they get something out of their India tour.
Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant have left the bubble and will be unavailable for the third T20I. Thus, expect some new names in the middle order. Other than that, Captain Rohit Sharma is also expected to make a lot of changes and give some other cricketers a chance as the T20 World Series is just around the corner. Shreyas Iyer, the newly appointed captain of the Kolkata franchise in the Indian T20 League is very likely to make his return to the squad. Rituraj Gaikwad is also expected to play his first game under the new game with Ishan Kishan batting at number three. Avesh Khan who was brilliant in the Indian T20 League last season deserves a call-up while Shardul is very likely to replace Deepak Chahar in the playing XI. Kuldeep Yadav might also make his return in place of Yuzvendra Chahal.
West Indies will not look to change their squad. Nicolas Pooran is in great form and he will hope to continue his momentum to bring some glory for the West Indies. Rovman Powell was brilliant in the last match and a lot depends on him for the success of the team. Jason Holder needs to step up. He was very poor in the second T20I and his form matters as he is a very key player for the West Indies team.
