India vs West Indies: 3rd ODI match today
India vs West Indies: Today is the third and final One-Day International between India and the West Indies at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The focus of Team India, which has won both matches so far, will now be on completing a series sweep by winning the final match. India defeated WI by 6 wickets in the first ODI and by 44 runs in the second.
For the first time since 1983, there’s a chance to sweep the board.
The first one-day international series between India and the West Indies was played in 1983, and the two countries have played a total of 21 one-day international series since then, with India failing to sweep the West Indies even once. In the 50-over format, however, the West Indies have swept India three times. Rohit and his teammates will have a chance to make history by winning the third ODI.
Changes in the team can occur.
In the final match, Team India, which has won the series, can use bench strength. Shikhar Dhawan, who won the Corona battle, will almost certainly get a chance, as will Shreyas Iyer. Dhawan would play the final match after the team won the second match, according to captain Rohit Sharma.
At the same time, Kuldeep Yadav, who has been out of the ODI team for nearly six months, has been recalled to the playing XI in place of Yuzvendra Chahal. Deepak Chahar and Avesh Khan can also be used in place of Shardul Thakur and Mohammad Siraj in the pace attack.
For the West Indies, it’s a Battle of Honor.
The West Indies team will take to the field in the final match to save their honour after losing the series. In the first two games, the team appeared disorganised in every aspect of the game. Neither the batsmen nor the bowlers were able to maintain their stamina after exerting early pressure. Prior to the tour of India, Ireland had also defeated the Windies 2-1 in a three-match ODI series.
