22 overs gone. West Indies are 158 for the loss of two wickets. A great start for the hosts and with Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope out in the middle, things are looking quite good for them. The run rate has gone down a bit after Gayle’s dismissal but this is still a great position for the Windies.
Help for spinners
A lot of turn and bounce off the pitch for the spinners but Yuzvendra Chahal and Kedar Jadhav have not exploited it well till now. The batsmen have taken a cautious approach while playing them and after 20 overs, the Windies are 148 for the loss of two wickets.

Jason Holder at toss
“Looks like a good wicket. Weather is not in our control, so we have to put runs on the board. We’ve done heaps of talking, but it’s time for execution. We need to take games deeper as possible, take responsibilities and bat deep. We’ve got to help one another. Two changes: Sheldon Cottrell and Oshane Thomas out, Keemo Paul and Fabian Allen in.”
Virat Kohli speaks at toss
“Not a bad thing at all, the toss is not in your control mostly. It’s an opportunity to come out here and execute our skill-sets and our plans on a pitch that is going to be challenging. We spoke about in the last game, how just after a mini break or a drink break, we lost our way with the bat and as well as in the field. So, we need to be professional as a team. One change. Chahal comes in for Kuldeep Yadav.”

- Darren Ganga

Kuldeep Yadav 4 wickets away from massive record
The tweaker has 96 wickets to his name in 53 ODIs and a four-wicket haul will help him become the fastest Indian to the feat of 100 ODI wickets.
Indian team’s administrative manager to be reprimanded
The Indian cricket team’s administrative manager Sunil Subramanium’s is set to be severely reprimanded by the BCCI for allegedly misbehaving with officials of the country’s High Commissions in the West Indies during the ongoing series there. Subramanium, who got a 45-day extension along with Ravi Shastri-led support staff is unlikely to be retained after the Caribbean series once the fresh round of interviews are conducted.
As per Accuweather, the weather is likely to remain cloudy for the better part of the day. It is expected that rain might again play spoilsport in the 3rd ODI as showers are predicted during the middle part of the match. The chances of rain are around 52% in Port of Spain while the maximum temperature expected is to be 34 degree Celsius.

It should be mentioned here that there have been reports of friction in the Indian dressing room but the players have only played down all such theories.
“Everyone is calm in the dressing room. We are just focusing on the match. We need to win the final ODI and end the series on a high,” Pant said ahead of the third match in Trinidad.
Kohli, Rohit and Kuldeep eye big records

India’s day out
Ahead of the 3rd ODI against West Indies, India cricketers Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma went out to enjoy their off day with West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard in Port of Spain by the sea. In videos uploaded on social media, Dhawan and Iyer were seen trying their hand at the Tarzan swing, before landing in the water and indulging in water sports. The duo were also seen relaxing on a boat along with Pollard.
Team India predicted XI
Indian cricket team will look to end their one-day international season with a victory on Wednesday at Port-of-Spain, in turn winning their fourth straight bilateral ODI series in the Caribbean Islands. The first match was abandoned due to rain but the Indians didn’t let the opportunity slip in the second ODI. The team rode on the brilliance of Virat Kohli and Bhuvneshwar Kumar to seal the deal. With the series on the line in the decider, here is what we think India’s line-up for the match will look like.
Brathwaite working on fitness
Struggling with his form, West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite said he is working on his fitness and trying to “reprogramme” his thoughts to get his batting back in order. Brathwaite scored 9, 10 and 0 across formats in the ongoing limited over series against India as West Indies suffered defeats in four straight games.
“I think batting-wise I have to reprogramme my thinking about hitting and swiping and batting properly,” he told reporters on the eve of the final ODI against India on Wednesday.
