Initial Situation for the Game West Indies vs. India
The third and final match of the T20 series between the West Indies and India takes place in Guyana on Tuesday, with the pressure mounting on the hosts to return to top form, having already been defeated by Virat Kohli & Co on consecutive occasions over the weekend. With one-day and Test series’ still to come over the coming months, the West Indies coming into Tuesday’s match ranked 9th in the world rankings, whilst India are placed in 5th. Their win via the Duckworth/Lewis method on Sunday means that it is India who are the favourites to continue their winning streak, however there are still plenty of appealing betting markets ahead of the first ball being bowled. With a large number of bets expected to be placed on the match, let’s take a closer look at the two teams, including their player availability and recent form, starting with the West Indies.
West Indies Form
Following a hugely disappointing World Cup campaign in England, where they started the tournament as one of the favourites, the West Indies will be looking to return to form as soon as possible, starting against India on home turf. The Windies will undoubtedly be looking to use the conditions to their advantage, however they lost their most recent T20 series against England back in March, losing all three games in the process. The Windies will be without the influential Chris Gayle, however the likes of Evin Lewis and Shimron Herymer have the talent to make up for such a loss. The hosts must also improve with the ball however, with the emphasis being on the likes of Sheldon Cottrell and Oshane Thomas to deliver.
India put their World Cup semi-final defeat behind them by registering back-to-back T20 wins over the Windies, with the runs of Sharma, Kohli and Pandya having helped them on their way over the weekend. The most impressive aspect of India’s performance in their opening victory on Saturday was their bowling attack, with the likes of Ahmed and Kumar having both picked up important wickets.
Latest Team News
The West Indies could well make changes to their team following poor performances in Florida over the weekend, with emphasis now being placed on the upcoming one-day and Test matches between the two nations. Meanwhile, India are likely to stick with the players who have served them so well during the series to date.
Before the beginning of the series, the two teams had five wins apiece in terms of their T20 head-to-head record, along with one no result.
