The 3rd and the last match of the three-match ODI series between India and West Indies will be played at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack.


Much like the T20Is, India came back strongly in the second match of the series after being outplayed in their opening encounter. The Men in Blue won the last game at Vizag by a huge margin of 107 runs with Rohit Sharma and Lokesh Rahul slamming centuries.

But what was even more heartening was the explosive brand of cricket by Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant through the middle, which helped India get those extra 40-50 runs.

Kuldeep Yadav then stood out with his 2nd ODI hat-trick. Mohammed Shami was the real game changer in the second innings with figures of 7.3-39-3.

Jason Holder looked to be the most impressive bowler for Windies in the last match while Shai Hope and Nicholas Pooran starred with the bat.

Khary Pierre failed to impress in the last match and either of Fabian Allen or Hayden Walsh Jr is expected to take his place in this game.

For India, Deepak Chahar has been ruled out due to his back troubles and Navdeep Saini has been called up as a replacement. It is quite likely that he will make it to the XI straight away.

India can also go for a more left-field option of playing both leg spinners and including the leggie, Chahal in place of Chahar and then replacing Kedar Jadhav with Manish Pandey, but that is less likely.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI both teams:

India - Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav

West Indies - Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Roston Chase, Kieron Pollard, Jason Holder, Keemo Paul, Alzarri Joseph, Sheldon Cottrell, Fabian Allen/Hayden Walsh Jr
