Jason Holder has the new ball in hand and is raring to go. But before that, the West Indies players take the knee as the Indian players have their hands on their badge to show their support for the BLM movement. All set now. Let's go...
Rohit Sharma, the skipper of India, says that they batted first last time as well and did well so they are ready for the challenge tonight but they have a different batting lineup tonight. Informs that they have made four changes with Kohli, Pant, Bhuvi and Chahal making way for Ruturaj, Shreyas, Shardul, and Avesh Khan to make his debut. Rohit also mentions that tonight Ishan and Ruturaj will open the innings. He mentions that it is a good test of their physical and mental strength and hopes that they come out on top yet again.
Kieron Pollard, the skipper of West Indies, says that they are going to bowl first, and nothing much has changed for them since the last few games. Informs us that they have four changes, Walsh, Fabian, Drakes, and Hope come in. Mentions that they have done well with the bat in the previous games but they have to improve their fielding and bowl better at the death. States that it is an opportunity for all the young guys to get try these conditions and for them to see what they offer.

TOSS - West Indies have won the toss and they have elected to BOWL first.
PITCH REPORT - Deepdas Gupta is alongside Ajit Agarkar for the Pitch Report. DDS says that the pitch is the same as the one used in the second T20I. Ajit adds that even though it's the second game on the same track, it should be a high-scoring game yet again. There are a few patches but the bowlers will find it difficult. DDS mentions that dew might be a factor but the conditions have been overcast all day long and that might mean that there's less dew tonight.
Some exciting news! Avesh Khan has just received his T20I cap and he is all set to make his senior international debut for India..
West Indies came really close to getting their first win of the tour last time around but the blitz from Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell just wasn't enough. Their openers have failed throughout the tour and with almost nothing to play for, the visitors might also tweak their playing XI. One man who certainly deserves to keep his place in the playing XI is Roston Chase. He was given a chance in the first T20I as Holder was injured but Chase has turned out to be their best bowler. So, will the hosts make a double clean sweep? Or will the T20I Kings end the tour on a high? We'll find out soon. Toss and team news in a bit.
India have already taken an unassailable lead in the 3-match series and with Virat Kohli and the vice-captain Rishabh Pant being released from the bio bubble, a lot of changes are expected tonight to the playing XI. Avesh Khan, who has been sitting on the sidelines might get his international debut. Shreyas Iyer might also come in for one of the two players released from the bio bubble and get a game at his new franchise's home ground. This match will help the hosts to utilize the bench strength as well.
Hello and a warm welcome to the 3rd T20I between India and West Indies. This is the final match of the T20I series and also of the tour. The hosts will be looking to repeat the clean sweep that they achieved during the ODI series here as well. The visitors will be looking to round off a disappointing tour with a consolation victory.
