West Indies had won the first ODI of the series on the back of some stellar batting performances from Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope. However, India bounced back in the 2nd ODI of the series riding high on centuries from Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul.
The Indian team will be hoping to bowl better in the final match of the series as they look to end the year on a high. On the other hand, West Indies will be backing themselves as they have what it takes to beat India. The Barabati Stadium in Cuttack has hosted 18 One Day Internationals out of which the team batting first has won 8 times while the team chasing has won the match 10 times.
