IND vs WI 3rd T20I Match Preview

Having already clinched the series, India would look to test its bench strength today in the third and final T20 International of the tour. Given how brilliant the likes of Navdeep Saini and Washington Sundar have been, trying out another bunch of youngsters seems a well and fair idea. Thus, the Chahar brothers are expected to take the field today at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. However, despite the series win the middle-order problem looked to have prevailed in both the games. Skipper Virat Kohli would home some runs from the number four, five and six to bolster the confidence ahead of the ODI series. (LIVE CRICKET BLOG – India vs West Indies 3rd T20I)

For Carlos Brathwaite-led side, it would all be about consolidating and restoring their pride. Considered one of the powerhouses in T20 cricket, the West Indies have had a dismal series so far. After losing both the matches in Florida, USA, the teams are finally in the Caribbean and the hosts would hope to withdraw full support from the home conditions to register their first win of the series.

The pitch at the Providence Stadium has always been on the side of the batsmen and today’s game should not be any different and the bowlers would be required to work hard for a positive outcome.
