The Indian cricket team led by Virat Kohli will have a chance to claim yet another series win when they take on West Indies in the third ODI in Trinidad. It has been an easy ride so far for the men in blue with the opposition failing on many fronts. After the first game got washed out, India powered by Virat Kohli’s century claimed an easy win. In the final game, West Indies are in with a shout to level the series, but that will need some upliftment in their game. The visitors, on the other hand, will be confident of yet another win in the fifty over format. A look at the players to watch out for in the contest. West Indies vs India Cricket Score 3rd ODI Match Summary.
Virat Kohli (India)
The Indian skipper got a century after missing out on three figures on several occasion including the 2019 World Cup in England. His brilliance with the bat showcased why he is the undisputed king in the shorter version of the game. West Indies will have to bowl well to get this champion player dismissed as he looks set to continue his good run in the final ODI.
Shreyas Iyer (India)
The middle-order batsman staked a claim for a long-term future in India’s middle-order with a well made 71. The Delhi Capitals skipper will now hope he is given a decent run-in with the team and there is scope for him to survive those odd failures. A gem of a batsman, Iyer has a wide range of shots to survive on tough foreign conditions.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar (India)
His 4/31 dismantled West Indies batting and forced them into a nosedive from which they could not recover. Bhuvi is an experienced bowler who has been around the team for a while now and has played in such game many times before. He will lead India’s attack as they look for a series win.
Nicholas Pooran (West Indies)
One player who can bail West Indies out of the mess they are currently in with respect to their batting. The youngster looked set for a big one before getting out on 42 in the previous game and with the kind of temperament he has, it will not be a surprise if he goes on to get a big score in the last game.
Sheldon Cottrell (West Indies)
Sheldon Cottrell has been economical since the T20 series between the sides, but the Indians have been smart in not giving him wickets. If West Indies are to bowl out their opposition to a lower total, it is imperative for Sheldon Cottrell to take wickets in a heap in the opening powerplay.
Important game for West Indies who will not want to cede the ODI series after their T20 loss, but India should not have difficulty in claiming the trophy.
