2023-07-31 19:48:00

Taroba: The third and final match of the ODI cricket series between India and West Indies will be played today. Today’s match is crucial as India won the first ODI and West Indies won the second ODI.

This is the first ODI to be played at the Taroba Brian Lara Stadium. Last year’s Twenty20 between India and West Indies was the only international match played here. In the 23 List A matches played here, the batsmen have crossed 250 runs only seven times. The weather report says that the atmosphere will be cloudy. India’s Ravindra Jadeja is on course to become the first player to take 200 wickets and 2000 runs in ODIs. If six more are dismissed, Jadeja will complete 200 wickets in ODIs. Jadeja is the second Indian player to achieve this feat after Kapil Dev (3783 runs and 253 wickets). Windies skipper Hi Hope needs 65 more runs to reach 5000 in ODIs. If he scores 5000 runs today, he can become third behind Babar Azam and Hashim Amla. Hope’s 113th innings is coming up. India and West Indies are unlikely to change the final XI. Captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli may not play in the Indian line-up. Coach Rahul Dravid had made it clear that the test will continue ahead of the World Cup. Hardik Pandya will lead the team.

Probable Team: India- Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya (captain), Suryakumar Yadav, Akshar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Umran Malik, Mukesh Kumar.

Probable Squad: West Indies- Brandon King, Kyle Myers, Alik Athanase, Shai Hope (captain), Shimron Hitmir, Casey Carty, Romario Sheppard, Yannick Kariya, Alzari Joseph, Gudakesh Moti, Jayden Seals.

Windies’ hope lies in Shai Hope’s batting. Windies led the way this year with an average of 48.95 at the start and 69.66 later. Hope remained unbeaten with 43 runs in the first match and 63 runs in the second match of the series.

Suryakumar Yadav’s performance in ODIs has been disappointing. The player scored 476 runs in 23 innings. Dravid had made it clear that Surya would be given more time.
