Changes in West Indies Squad For WI Vs India Third ODI
Question in detail
WI Vs India 3rd ODI, match preview: Dominant India is set to fancy their chances of taking an unassailable 2-0 lead over inexperienced West Indies at North Sound, Antigua where the two teams will lock horns for the 3rd game of the five-match ODI series. The series so far has seen India's top-order in a brutal form. With Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane and skipper Virat Kohli looking in good touch with bat, India has got reasons to repeat the blaster of the last match, which led them to a clinical 105-run victory. It was India's biggest ever win on Caribbean land. The world's number three side demonstrated their batting might, thus putting a mammoth 310-run total in the rain-affected match, which was cut down to 43 overs. Thereafter, the bowlers stifled the home side with their lethal bowling display. While Ajinkye Rahane marked the match with a neat hundred (104-ball 103), Dhawan and Kohli contributed with a fluent half-century each to back Rahane's brilliance.
Now, in WI Vs India 3rd ODI, the trio of Dhawan, Rahane and Kohli would eye to continue in the same vein. Moreover, veterans like MS Dhoni and Yuvraj would hope to capitalize the start in the middle. Widely known to decimate the opponent's bowling in death overs, Pandya and Jadhav's blitz would be no surprise if their batting comes. India's bowling attack looks good enough to devastate Windies' feeble batting order. Spin responsibility is to be shouldered by Kuldeep Yadav and Ashwin collectively. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav are likely to pose a threat with their impeccable line and length.
A couple of changes in WI squad for the third ODI are likely to occur given the fact that their current side drastically failed to compete the visitors in the previous games. Trailing 0-1 in the series, the hosts seek changes to overcome their woes. For the remainder of the series, West Indies have added Kyle Hope and Sunil Ambris to the squad to get some boost in the batting line-up. While Kyle Hope is a top-order batsman, Sunil Ambris comes as middle-order basher.
Kyle and Ambris are young promising batsmen who have joined the squad as replacement of Jonathan Carter and Kesrick Williams. Changes in WI squad for the third ODI won't bother in-form team India. The changed WI squad for the remaining matches is as: Jason Holder (c), Devendra Bishoo, Roston Chase, Sunil Ambris, Kyle Hope, Shai Hope (wk), Miguel Cummins, Alzarri Joseph, Jason Mohammed, Ashley Nurse, Evin Lewis, Kieran Powell and Rovman Powell.
