For India, their opening pair is quiet strong. In the first ODI they played well but in the second one they did not click. It seems the opening pair of Sikhar and Rahane. They are expected to give India a firm start in the next ODI. This opening pair is pretty strong and good for India’s perspective. In the first ODI Indian middle order failed but in the second one they recovered well and it seems they are in great shape. If it is then it will be reflected in the 4th ODI. Skipper who did not get run in the first match, got in the previous one.  He could be the key player for India. Kohli, Raina, Jadeja could play a crucial role for India. Indian bowlers did not manage to impress with their performance but one bowler who is performing consistently well from the first match, he is none other than Mohammed Shami. He bowled pretty well. Jadeja, Mishra and Bhuvi looked stable in the second match. Along with Shami these bowlers could be the key player of India.

The West Indies front line is pretty strong. They have gained plenty of confidence from this ODI series. Smith, both Bravo, Samuels are in really good shape.  They performed consistently well in the previous matches of the series. Their middle order did not click but it is dependable if clicks at right time. They could perform in the next one. They could be the key player of the match. Caribbean bowlers also performing consistently well. Especially Rampaul, Dwayne Bravo and Taylor. Taylor bowled pretty well in the previous matches. He could be the star of Caribbean team. Dwayne bravo managing his crew quiet well but he did not click with the ball in the previous one. But this barbaric player needs only match to return in form.

Both the team will try to dominate the series by winning this match so they will play with their full strength. This match going to be very interesting.
