India vs West Indies live cricket score and ball by ball commentary, IND vs WI 3rd ODI, live score at Port of Spain

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the 3rd ODI between India and West Indies at Port of Spain on Wednesday.

MATCH PREVIEW

India are known not to tweak their winning combination. Dhawan will get another chance to regain his form and so is the case with Pant. However, the team management may opt to make one change in the bowling department by giving Navdeep Saini a run in the last ODI and rest Mohammed Shami.

Probable XI: 1. Shikhar Dhawan, 2. Rohit Sharma, 3. Virat Kohli (captain), 4. Rishabh Pant (wk), 5. Shreyas Iyer, 6. Kedar Jadhav, 7. Ravindra Jadeja, 8. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 9. Mohammed Shami/Navdeep Saini, 10. Kuldeep Yadav, 11. Khaleel Ahmed

West Indies

A lot of the batting depends on talents like Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope and Nicholas Pooran, who have impressive lately, but have failed to convert the starts. Coach Paul Reifer too has called for the middle order to show some grit. Khary Pierre, who was named as replacement for the allrounder Fabian Allen, may get a shot for this match.

Probable XI: 1. Chris Gayle, 2. Evin Lewis, 3. Shai Hope (wk), 4. Shimron Hetmyer, 5. Nicholas Pooran, 6. Roston Chase/Khary Pierre, 7. Jason Holder (captain), 8. Carlos Brathwaite, 9. Kemar Roach, 10. Sheldon Cottrell, 11. Oshane Thomas
