India vs West Indies Score 3rdT20, IND vs WI highlights: Darren Bravo and Nicholas Pooran batted with full confidence to power West Indies side to 181/3 runs after 20 overs. The Caribbeans’ decision to bat first turned out to be the right thing to do today. Pooran made a blistering half century of 53 runs of 27 deliveries. Rohit Sharma’s men now need 182 runs to chase with a run rate of a little over 9 per over. Lets see what happens! Stick to the Live Coverage.
Carlos Brathwaite has won the toss and elected to bat first. Rohit Sharma would eye a clean sweep as the Indian cricket team takes on Windies in the final match of what has been a disastrous tour for the visitors at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. Even though the Windies side has produced some eye-grabbing moments on this tour, the fact is that they have just one win so far from nine matches across all formats. The T20Is where the team was expected to do better, have in fact been the most one-sided competitions.
The 2-0 lead allows the Indian team to experiment with the playing XI and in the first step, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumarh and Umesh Yadav were released from the squad. This would allow Yuzvendra Chahal and Siddharth Kaul to get a game. In the batting department, Shreyas Iyer might come in for Rishabh Pant or Manish Pandey but, the rest of the composition is likely to remain the same.
The West Indies, on the other hand, have struggled as the big names like Carlos Brathwaite, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin and Darren Bravo have failed to contribute with the bat. Experiments with Shimron Hetmyer’s batting order haven’t worked for the side as well.
