IND vs WI 3rd ODI: Team India, who have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the ODI series, will have a clean sweep of West Indies when they take to the Queen’s Park Oval ground for the third match. That is, India will not take lightly in any way even this match to be held on Wednesday 27 July in Port of Spain. Young Team India, playing under the leadership of captain Shikhar Dhawan, will attack with full force in the next match as well.
India’s emphasis will be on maintaining winning streak
By winning the second match on Sunday, Team India created a new world record by winning the 12th consecutive bilateral series in the ODI format. This is the best performance of a single team against an opposing team. Captain Dhawan and head coach Rahul Dravid would like to maintain this winning streak, so they will focus on maintaining the balance of the team.
Indian batsmen will have to show their strength again
Opener Shubman Gill is giving consistent performance in this series. Gill has played two good innings of 64 and 43 runs in the last two matches. On the other hand, Dhawan scored 93 runs in the first match but was dismissed for 13 in the second. In the final match, his effort will be to lay a solid foundation for a memorable victory for India by playing a big innings. Shreyas Iyer has returned to the scintillating rhythm with two consecutive fifties while Sanju Samson also scored a half-century in the previous match. That is, the batting order of the Indian team is ready for another victory.
Entertainment will be expected from Akshar Patel again
In the second ODI, Axar Patel played a charismatic innings with the bat. He played an unbeaten knock of 64 off 35 balls to guide India to a two-wicket victory in a thrilling position. Apart from this, Patel, who took one wicket for 40 runs in nine overs, also performed well with the ball. Fans would like to see the rise of the new all-rounder in the form of Axar Patel soar in the skies during the next match.
Jadeja’s fitness will be monitored
All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja could not play the first two matches due to a knee injury. The team management has not said anything on his fitness for the next match. If fit, he can be given a place in the team in place of Yuzvendra Chahal, who has been playing continuous cricket since 2022 IPL.
Change is necessary in the strategy of Indian bowlers
In the two matches of the series, the Caribbean batsmen took the news of the Indian bowlers fiercely. Especially Shay Hope, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell and Romerio Shepherd made a lot of runs. In such a situation, Coach Dravid will try his best to send the Indian bowlers on the field with a changed strategy.
Will try to avoid being embarrassed by Windies
If the host team gets defeated in the next match, then it will be a shameful situation for them. Earlier, they had lost 0-3 to Bangladesh. In such a situation, in the next match, the Windies will have to break their losing streak in ODIs at any cost.
