After losing the second game, Team India managed to make a brilliant comeback and win the third match of the 5-match T20I series after taking a 2-1 lead. While batting first, West Indies posted 164 runs on the board which the Indian side successfully chased down with only losing 3 wickets and an over to spare.
Suryakumar Yadav played dominating knock and he eventually received the player of the match award for his match-winning knock with the bat (76 runs off 44 balls). In the 4th T20I, West Indies will look to make a comeback and win the game to stay alive in this series while India will look to beat them to clinch the series.
With the win in the game, it will be the 8th consecutive series win for Rohit Sharma since he has become the permanent captain. In the past years, India and the West Indies have faced one another for T20I games a total of 23 times. India has won more T20I Matches against West Indies, as the head-to-head stats read 15-7.
The hosts could be tempted to go in with an unchanged XI. The one option is to pick Keemo Paul as he has found some success at the ground with his slow variations. If they want to tinker with the batting unit, then Shamarh Brooks can be added as well.
Probable XI: Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran (c), Rovman Powell, Shimon Hetmyer, Devon Thomas (wk), Jason Holder, Dominic Drakes/Keemo Paul, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Obed McCoy
Rohit Sharma walked back to the pavilion in the third game due to a back spasm. But he later said in the post-match presentation: “At the moment, it’s okay. We’ve got a few days till the next game, hopefully, it should be okay.” Avesh Khan will be expected to be replaced by Harshal Patel, who laid low by a rib problem, he could get another opportunity. The alternative route is to pick another spinner.
Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan/Ravi Bishnoi/Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh
Fantasy XI Suggestion 1:
Nicholas Pooran, Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav (C), Shreyas Iyer, Shimron Hetmyer, Kyle Mayers (VC), Rovman Powell, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Akeal Hosein, Arshdeep Singh
Fantasy XI Suggestion 2:
