WI vs IND 3rd ODI: In the third ODI match of the India Tour of West Indies, scheduled for August 1 at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad, India (IND) will face West Indies (WI). The series stands at 1-1 with both teams having won one match each, making this decider crucial. Despite India’s loss in their previous match, they remain the favorites to win the series.

In their last encounter at the Kensington Oval, West Indies won the toss and chose to field. Capitalizing on their victory, India decided to rest Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, providing an opportunity for the younger players to showcase their talent. India had an impressive opening partnership of 90 runs, but after its dismissal, they struggled to build substantial partnerships. Ishan Kishan stood out with an excellent half-century, yet India could only manage a modest total of 181 runs before being bowled out.

Although the target seemed achievable for West Indies, their recent performance had been lackluster, creating doubts. However, they got off to a promising start with an opening stand of 53 runs. India appeared to be making a comeback when they claimed a couple of quick wickets, but Shai Hope and Keacy Carty dashed their hopes by forming an unbeaten match-winning partnership of 91 runs. Shai Hope’s outstanding contribution earned him the title of Player of the Match.

Pitch and conditions

The pitch at the Brian Lara Stadium is bowler-friendly, particularly for pacers. At the beginning of the innings, the ball swings effectively, and towards the end, there is a possibility of reverse swing. Batsmen will need to exercise caution and choose their shots wisely. Given these conditions, teams winning the toss often opt to bowl first, and the average first innings total hovers around 217.
