India may not make many changes to their batting order.

On Sunday, India defeated the West Indies in the ODI format and won their 12th straight series, which is the most ever against a side.

The merciless Indian team won’t let up as they want to add another clean sweep against the West Indies on Wednesday to a performance that has set a world record.

On Sunday, India defeated the West Indies in the ODI format and won their 12th straight series, which is the most ever against a side.

In light of this, head coach Rahul Dravid could be tempted to give some of his backup players a chance, but he’ll need to strike a delicate balance between maintaining the momentum and gauging the depth of his bench.

It is doubtful that Shubman Gill would opt to sit out after two innings of 64 and 43, thus Ruturaj Gaikwad would be favoured over him in the batting department.

Gaikwad enjoyed a comprehensive South Africa series when he showed a clear discomfort with strong speed. Although his IPL credentials have kept him in the running, the Indian cricket establishment’s prospects of making a short-term investment on him seem slim. Despite his double failures in the first two games, Suryakumar Yadav is not anticipated to cool his heels at the cost of Ishan Kishan, as Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson have both started the ground running with fifty-plus scores in the most recent game.

Kishan is regarded as a good ball timer who can make good use of Powerplay opportunities by hitting over the in-field. Samson is a better choice since he lacks the strength to drive the tempo beyond the 35th over.

Before suffering a knee niggle that prevented him from playing in the first two games of this series, Ravindra Jadeja, the chosen vice captain, was the series’ top all-arounder.

Whether Jadeja will be eligible for the championship game is still uncertain since Axar Patel could feel unfairly treated after scoring a match-winning 64 in the second game.

Yuzvendra Chahal may be asked to take a break if Dhawan wants to field two left-arm spinners, but doing so would mean less variation in the bowling attack.

Arshdeep Singh, a left-arm seam bowler, might be used in lieu of Avesh Khan, who was a little overpriced in the second ODI and had a groyne complaint during the England ODIs. In his six overs without a wicket, he gave up 54 runs.

Avesh and Prasidh Krishna both bowl with a hit-the-deck motion, causing the ball to rear up from a decent or back length.

It only justifies one of the two of them to get the start in the XI.

West Indies has competent players, but as a team, they haven’t been able to score. They rely much too heavily on each person’s talent, whether it is Shai Hope, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, or Romario Shepherd.

More significantly, the squad hasn’t shown resiliency to prevail in crucial situations that might affect the result of the game. In the series’ last game, West Indies would be wise to draw on Jason Holder’s expertise.

The hosts will want to halt their eight-match losing record in ODIs, which included a 0-3 defeat to Bangladesh in the last rubber.


West Indies: Nicholas Pooran (C), Shai Hope, Shamarh Brooks, Keacy Carty, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Keemo Paul, Rovman Powell and Jayden Seales, Hayden Walsh.
