India vs West Indies, 3rd T20I: Match Preview
With India winning the first match in Trinidad and West Indies bouncing back to win the second. The series is now leveled at 1-1.
Both the teams would want to take a significant lead in the series by winning this match before moving the tour to Florida, USA.
India scored 138 runs and got all out in 19.4 overs while batting first. West Indies chased down the score with 5 wickets in hand and 4 balls remaining.
India could not continue their dominating batting performance in the second match. Skipper Rohit Sharma was dismissed in the very first ball of the last match and 5 out of batters could not even get past the 100 strike rate. Batting would be the prime concern for the Indian team in the third match.
Indian bowlers have performed well in the last match except for Avesh Khan. The pitch is expected to be fast bowling friendly and Avesh would want to improve his performance in the third match.
For the West Indies, Obed McCoy was the big positive from the second match. The bowling attack of the West Indies is looking fairly balanced led by McCoy and Akeal Hosein.
Batting woes have to continue to haunt the West Indian lineup. Indian bowlers managed to take it up till the last over of the match despite a low total on the board. Captain Pooran and the middle order would want to live up to their reputation as explosive T20 batters.
The following clash should be interesting as both teams will look to gain the lead in the 5-match series.
