Take two and now we are all set for the game to begin. Umpires out in the middle and the fielders are in place. It will be the pair of Kyle Mayers and Brandon King to open the innings for West Indies. Hardik Pandya, the Indian skipper has the new ball in hand and is raring to go. Let's play...
We are all set! The two umpires are out in the middle and so are the players of India. There is a slight delay though because the groundstaff have forgotten to mark the inner circle. The players and the umpires go back into the hut as the groundstaff start their work. Stay tuned as this won't be a long delay.
PITCH REPORT - Ian Bishop is near the pitch and Daren Ganga joins him in the middle. Ganga says that the surface is drier than the one used in the 2nd game and it is a bit dusty but there will be consistent bounce. Reckons the spinners will come into the game more.
Hardik Pandya, the skipper of India, says that they don't mind chasing. Adds that they would have preferred to bat first. Reckons that the surface might get slower. Mentions that Nicholas Pooran has been batting well and says that they want to keep things simple against him. Informs that Yashasvi Jaiswal makes his T20 debut, replacing Ishan Kishan and Ravi Bishnoi makes way for Kuldeep Yadav.
Rovman Powell, the West Indies skipper says that they will bat first as the wicket looks a bit slow, and wants to put runs on the board. Informs that Jason Holder picked up a niggle in the knee in the last game and hence, he is rested and Roston Chase comes in for him. Mentions that the boys are excited and a series win will be good for not just the team but for the board and the fans as well. Says that against a strong side like India, you need to always press and not get too predictable.
India (Playing XI) - Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal (In for Ishan Kishan), Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya (C), Sanju Samson (WK), Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav (In for Ravi Bishnoi), Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mukesh Kumar.
West Indies (Playing XI) - Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Johnson Charles, Nicholas Pooran (WK), Rovman Powell (C), Shimron Hetmyer, Romario Shepherd, Roston Chase (In for Jason Holder), Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Obed McCoy.
TOSS - The two captains are out in the middle. The coin toss lands in the favour of Rovman Powell and the West Indies have opted to BAT first.
Debut Alert - Left-handed batter Yashasvi Jaiswal has been handed his maiden T20I cap and is all set to make his T20I debut for India. He had made his Test debut earlier in the tour and will now represent India in the T20I format. It was a dream international debut for the young man, can he replicate the same here? Also, who is going to make way for him? Stay tuned to find out...
On the other hand, India's lacklustre batting has resulted in them losing the first two T20Is of this five-match T20I series. Tilak Varma has been one of the positives for them, but the rest of the batting group will need to stand up in what is a must-win game for them. The bowlers have done their job in both games and will have to do even better against the in-form West Indies batters. Will Hardik Pandya's men manage to keep the series alive? Or will we see the West Indies seal the series with yet another win? Plenty of answers to unfold, so stick around as the toss and team news is coming up in a bit.
Having come from behind to pull off an unlikely victory in the first T20I, the West Indies turned up to Guyana with momentum behind them to make it 2-0. The hosts were up to the mark with their discipline with the ball and kept India in check. In their pursuit of a tricky total, they stuttered a bit, but Nicholas Pooran and the tail came to the rescue and took them over the line. History beckons for Rovman Powell and Co., who have never clinched a bilateral T20I series against India consisting of 3 or more games.
Hello and a warm welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to our coverage of the third T20I between the West Indies and India at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. We have had two thrillers so far, and this one promises to be even more exciting with the series on the line for India. On the other hand, the West Indies are riding high on confidence and will want to seal the series in this game itself before the two teams make the trip to Lauderhill in the USA for the last two T20Is.
