Here, the Windies team will try to register a consolation win in the series.
The last two matches have been exciting. In such a situation, the possibility of the last match being interesting cannot be ruled out. In the last two matches, the Indian team had won in the last overs. The Indian team is currently looking balanced in both batting and bowling. The top order is doing well in batting for India. In the bowling, Shardul Thakur and Yuzvendra Chahal are consistently successful in taking wickets.

In the second ODI also, the Indian team defeated the West Indies team by 2 wickets and won the ODI series. Batting first, the West Indies team scored 311 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in the thrilling match, playing the 100th match of his ODI career, Shai Hope, batting brilliantly, played a brilliant innings of 115 runs and captain Nicholas Pooran also played his well.

Brandon King and Nicholas Pooran will take over the batting of the middle order. Akil Hossein and Hayden Walsh will command the spin bowling of their team. His teams pace attack will be led by Alzarri Joseph and Jaden Seals.

He won the match by playing an unbeaten innings of 64 runs for which he was also given the Man of the Match award. Team India will be most expected in this match from swashbuckling batsman Suryakumar Yadav, who, contrary to his reputation and early performance in his international career, has not been able to score big in 5 consecutive ODI matches. He could not play any good innings after a brilliant century in the last T20 on the England tour. Despite this, he may be given another chance. Change is also not expected in the opening and the pair of Shikhar-Shubman Gill will remain. That is, the wait for Ishan Kishan and Rituraj Gaikwad can continue.
India had changed the pace of bowling in the first two matches and it was not very successful. The famous Krishna proved to be expensive in the first match, while Avesh Khan, who debuted in the team in his place in the second match, was also ineffective. In such a situation, left-arm fast bowler Arshdeep Singh can be taken in the team in place of Avesh Khan.

As the game progresses, the pitch will become easier to bat on and the batsmen will take full advantage of it. The average is expected to build up to 270-280 in the third match.
