WI vs IND 3rd T20I

WI vs IND 3rd T20I: West Indies will be concentrating on snapping their seven-match losing streak and winning the third Twenty20 International (T20I) game on Tuesday in order to continue playing in the series against India. The third cricket match between India and the West Indies will take place at Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad. The visiting team is having a good start in the remaining play after edging out the series opener by barely three runs. India lost seven wickets when batting first, but they still managed to reach a respectable total of 308 runs.

The club’s seasoned batsman and captain, Shikhar Dhawan, made a valiant attempt by scoring 97 runs off 99 balls to help his team to a total that might be defended. The Indian batting order had a strong foundation thanks to the opening partnership of 119 runs between Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill. On 53 balls, Shubman Gill scored 64 runs.

The West Indies’ attempt to increase their run total was hindered by the loss of wicketkeeper-batsman Shai Hope (7 runs off 18 balls). The home team could only muster 305/6 in 50 overs, although eventually mounting a stunning comeback.

 WI vs IND 3rd T20I: Overview

As the spotlight now goes to the T20I series following an exciting ODI series, the second Twenty20 International between India and the West Indies is scheduled to take place at Trinidad’s Brian Lara Stadium Tarouba on Monday, August 1. The three One Day Internationals the hosts held ended in a tie, thus they will be aiming for a return in the shortest format. On the other hand, India hopes to play consistently in the 20-over format after displaying excellent performance in the 50-over format.

In order to lead the Men in Blue from the front, Rohit Sharma, who was rested for the first leg of this bilateral white-ball series, will now take the field.

The “Hitman” will be hoping to make the most of his opportunity in the forthcoming five T20 Internationals as the Men in Blue start their preparations for the Asia Cup in the UAE and the T20 World Cup in October. The absence of key players like Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah would be a fantastic opportunity for the young players and the bench strength to push their claims and put the national selectors on notice, similar to the ODI series.

WI vs IND 3rd T20I: Key Players


India will prefer to give players like Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan, and Avesh Khan a chance to redeem themselves in the format of one-day internationals. This is because during the forthcoming one-day international series, regular players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohler, Jasprit Bumrah, and Shami will have some downtime. India also wants to provide athletes like Avesh Khan the chance to participate in international one-day tournaments so they can build a name for themselves.

In each of the five Twenty20 matches, the same team—Indian players and South African players—faced off against one another, and the same team—Indian players and South African players—won each and every game. India defeated South Africa in each and every Twenty20 match the two countries played. Overall, India was the superior team.

West Indies

Now that they have the opportunity to do so since they have this chance, they will give it everything they’ve got to beat the West Indies and raise their rating. They will give it their all because winning is all that matters to them. Up the other hand, the team led by Nicholas Pooran will approach their showdown with India with the intention of putting on a comprehensive performance.

Their batting has been an issue for them in one-day international matches, and the main reason for this is that none of their batters are prepared to take responsibility for lengthy innings. This and other elements play a part in their lackluster at-bat performance. They were unable to total more than 200 runs against Bangladesh in any of their three One-Day International games. Bangladesh won all three of those contests.

If the West Indies are to have any chance of beating India, their performance at the batting position must significantly improve. India presently holds the top spot in the sport’s overall standings.

WI vs IND 3rd T20I: Pitch Report

At Brian Lara Stadium, it is believed that the surface will be suited to batting, and a run-scoring spectacular is quite likely to take place there. Both teams’ batsmen will be looking to have a good time on this wicket, which means that the bowlers will have to put in a lot of effort if they want to gain any breakthroughs. As a result of this, the opportunity to bowl first will go to the captain who emerges victorious from the coin toss.

WI vs IND 3rd T20I: Match winner prediction

136 one-day international contests for the West Indies were held at the Brian Lara Stadium. Sixty-six of the games produced positive results, whereas sixty-seven produced unfavorable ones. They have a poor home record, therefore they will view this game as an opportunity to change the momentum in their favor. India lost several games in this format but made a valiant effort against England to win the series. In one-day international matches against the West Indies, the visitors consistently do better than the hosts.

The outcomes of the two games they saw over the course of three days would have a significant and immediate influence on the tourists. There isn’t much cause for optimism about how they will bat given how the test series went, but they may bowl better in the one-day internationals. Because we don’t believe the West Indies would stage a strong comeback after this humiliation, we believe the Indian team will win this match very easily.
