Updated - Jul 26, 2022 2:02 pm
After winning two close encounters against the hosts West Indies, the final ODI for the visitors, India is scheduled to take place on July 27 at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain. The Shikhar Dhawan-led side has used their available resources to the best and is likely to try the players on the bench with the T20 World Cup coming up.
On the other hand, West Indies will be quite disappointed after not being able to finish off games despite having enough chances. Kyle Mayers and Shai Hope have performed quite well at the top of the order while Gukatesh Motie is likely to return to the XI in place of Hayden Walsh Jr. who looked in complete disarray.

WI vs IND Pitch Report
The two games so far at the venue have been quite high-scoring games and the team batting first will need at least 320 to be on the safer side. The wrist spinners were taken to the cleaners in the previous game and it will be important to have wickets in the bank so that, the death overs could be capitalized. The skipper winning the toss is likely to bowl first as chasing looks the easier option.
WI vs IND, 3rd ODI Probable Playing XIs:
Shai Hope (wk), Brandon King, Shamarh Brooks, Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran (c), Rovman Powell, Akeal Hosein, Romario Shepherd/Keemo Paul, Alzarri Joseph, Gudakesh Motie, Jayden Seales
Shikhar Dhawan (c), Shubman Gill/Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson/Ishan Kishan (wk), Deepak Hooda, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan
WI vs IND Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the 3rd ODI match
Shikhar Dhawan missed out to score big in the previous game as he was dismissed off a flying catch from Kyle Mayers. However, the left-hander has been a run machine at the top of the order for India over the years in the format and will be looking to get to the three-figure mark. The skipper’s 97 in the first ODI was quite fantastic and he will be looking to lead from the front again.
Probable best bowler
Axar Patel bowled an economical spell in the previous game despite the pitch favouring the fast bowlers and he finished with 1 for 40 in his 9 overs. His superb knock with the bat also earned him the Player of the Match award. However, he has a big role to play in the bowling lineup still. This will be a good chance for him to make a case for himself in the ODI setup after his stupendous innings with the bat.
