- There may be some changes in the Indian team in the third ODI
- India have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series
IND vs WI 3rd ODI Probable XI: Team India has to face West Indies in the third match of the ODI series on Wednesday at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain. The Indian team, which has taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series, will be eyeing a clean sweep of the Caribbean team by winning this match as well. In the last two matches of the series, Team India performed brilliantly in every department of the game and defeated the Windies in thrilling matches.
One change possible in Indian top order
The opening pair of captain Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill could not have a big partnership in the second match but in the first ODI, there was a tremendous partnership of 119 runs between them. Dhawan, who scored just 13 runs in the previous match, had the highest score of 97 runs in the first match, while Gill scored 43 runs in the second match after playing a blistering innings of 64 runs in the first match. At the same time, Shreyas Iyer, batting at number three, is in excellent form. He has become a strong pillar of the team by scoring half-centuries in two consecutive matches. Although Suryakumar Yadav, who was in excellent form on the England tour, could score 13 runs in the first match and only 9 runs in the second, so Ishan Kishan can be given a chance in his place.
No change in middle order
Team India’s middle order performed well in the second match of the series against the Windies. Sanju Samson, batting at number five, scored a brilliant half-century while Deepak Hooda scored 33 runs at number six. Axar Patel, who was the hero of the last match’s victory, came at number seven and scored 64 runs in just 35 balls to give India an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. That is, there is no possibility of any change in the middle order.
There can be 2 changes in the bowling attack
In the second match of the series, fast bowler Avesh Khan, who came in place of famous Krishna, remained empty handed even after conceding 54 runs in 6 overs. In the second match, Arshdeep can be given a chance in place of Avesh. Apart from Avesh, rest of the bowlers did well. Although Mohammad Siraj also did not get a wicket but he gave only 46 runs in 10 overs, which gave strength to the team. While Shardul Thakur took 2 wickets in the first match after taking 3 wickets in the third, he is sure to play. Although Yuzvendra Chahal is performing well in the current series, this spinner, who has been playing continuously since IPL, can be rested in the next match. Ravi Bishnoi, who is waiting for his turn sitting on the bench instead of Chahal, can be rested.

India: Shikhar Dhawan (capt), Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav/Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson (wk), Deepak Hooda, Axar Petal, Shardul Thakur, Mohammad Siraj, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh.
