India will face host West Indies today for the 3rd and the last ODI match of the India tour of the West Indies ODI series. Team India has already named the series by defeating WI by 2 wickets in the second ODI match. With this, the visitors have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. Now India has a chance to whitewash the host on their home soil.
This is India’s 12th consecutive series win over WI in ODI cricket. With this, the Indian team has made the world record of defeating any one team in the most consecutive series. The previous record was in the name of our biggest rival Pakistan. Team Pakistan has defeated Zimbabwe in 11 consecutive ODI series.
we have seen a good batting track in the Port of Spain cricket ground. Both teams have scored 300+ runs in every match of the series. A total of 1200+ runs have been made in just 2 matches in the series so far. There is a prediction of some rain in the match too, hence toss winning team may choose to ball first here. The overcast condition always favors the pacers too.
The weather forecast is giving very bad news for the day. Heavy rain is expected throughout the game time. There are 70% chances of rain for the day.
Wind- 14 km/h
Chances of Rain- 70%
India is leading the head-to-head battle between the two teams. Both teams have played 138 One day Internationals so far. In which, India won 69 while West Indies won 63. Two matches remained tied and 4 had no result.
SKY has failed to score runs in the current series against West Indies. He will definitely look to score big runs in the last match and finish the series on a good note. Surya had scored a brilliant century against England in the T20 series. He had also played some valuable knocks in the ODI series against England but he was not successful to score the runs in the current series against WI.
With each match that I watch, my love for the game just increases. All I dream of is to join my passion for writing with that of the game and pen down the live-action.
As a person, I am a quick learner and work well in a team for that is what wins the series.
