India vs West Indies – 3rd T20I, Mumbai – Match Prediction
It’s 1-1 in the three-match series between India and the West Indies and thus both the teams have everything to play for. India has not been at their absolute best in the shortest format and the Virat Kohli-led side will like to fill in missing pieces. One of the biggest woes for the Indian team in the last two matches has been their fielding. Hence, it would definitely be a matter of discussion in the team’s rendezvous.
The Indian team will need to pull up their socks in the fielding department. On the other hand, the batting hasn’t been at his best as the batters are getting off to starts but they are not able to convert them into substantial scores.
Hosts need to pull up their socks.
On the other hand, the West Indies are in a better space right now. The Carribeans are much more athletic in the field and they had come up with a better bowling performance in the second match. The visitors’ bowlers had only conceded 73 runs in the last ten overs which was the turning point of the match.
Furthermore, Lendl Simmons was at his best as he scored a quickfire knock of 67 runs off 45 balls. Wankhede Stadium brings sweet memories for Simmons as he had ended India’s T20 World Cup hopes back in 2016 in the same stadium. The right-hander will aim to play a killjoy once more in the all-important decider.
Meanwhile, India could be forced to make a change in their playing XI. The hosts might get in Kuldeep Yadav in place of Ravindra Jadeja who hasn’t been able to make an impact. Furthermore, we might also see an in-form Mohammed Shami make the cut into the playing XI.
Match Prediction: India had started this series as favorites but a good comeback from the Windies has left everything in balance. Ergo, it is going to be evenly contested and the toss will play a pivotal part. The decider is expected to be a run-fest. as the Wankhede is a paradise for the batsmen.
