With India leading the series 2-0, another mistake by the West Indians and the five-game series will be gone when the two teams face-off at North Sound in Antigua. The game will be played on June 11.
It has been an interesting couple of games, but ones where the Indians have more or less dominated long stretches of play. In the first game, an early West Indian collapse left the Indians with only 215 to get while in the second it was a late-order capitulation that had the West Indians get to 240 only.
Falling back 2-0, the West Indian side has changed its line-up a tad with a couple of changes to their squad, but they have refrained from getting in Chris Gayle. Dwayne Bravo gets a break, while Ravi Rampaul will be replaced by Kemar Roach, whose pace should test the Indian batsmen.
On the other hand, the touring Indian side will continue to play with the same eleven unless the pitch at the North Sound will assist the pace bowlers rather one-sidedly.
With Virat Kohli regaining his touch in the previous game and Amit Mishra getting amongst the wickets, the Indians seem to have all their bases covered. A third consecutive win looks certain unless the hosts can come up with something special.
The third ODI between India and West Indies will be shown live on Ten Sports and Ten Cricket.
