The final game of the three-game ODI series between West Indies and India takes place on Wednesday at Queen's Park Oval, Trinidad.

Team India is now ready to cross swords with West Indies in the third and final ODI, which is scheduled to begin on July 27, 2022 (Wednesday) at the Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad. It was once again the visiting Indian side who defeated the West Indies in another thrilling encounter that ran the thread. India managed to claim an incredible 2-wicket win in the second ODI to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-game ODI series. On the other hand, the West Indies are happy about a consolation victory.
Although India have already won 2-0, the series was extremely close with India winning by three runs on Friday and two wickets on Sunday. Read on as we preview this device. This ODI begins at 09:30 local time.
The West Indies were top of the table for many phases of Sunday's game and although they failed to convert that into a win, they are undoubtedly playing their best ODI cricket in a long time.
The visitors found a way to win in both games and it was Axar Patel's runs that were crucial in the second ODI. They have match winners in every discipline ready to step up.

Team Preview

WEST INDIES

West Indies played a more aggressive style of cricket in the second ODI and was able to rally around Shai Hope, who nearly batted through the inning. Hope's 115 from 135 was a bit traditional, but it allowed the likes of Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran and others to play their shots.
For the second game in a row, the West Indies team managed to reach 300 and three of the top 4 scored more than the over/under lines offered. This could also be something you can exploit in this third ODI.
West Indies also hit 12 sixes in the previous game in addition to the 8 they smashed in the first. We're cautious about betting on the West Indies hitting more sixes than India as both teams have plenty of power hitters, but you can look to the total sixes market instead.
The West Indies batters have performed superbly in this series, but the fact remains that the West Indies have now lost five straight matches in the past two weeks. The team's confidence will be a bit low.
Kyle Mayers has emerged as one of the brighter prospects for the West Indies, contributing in an all-around role.
While the West Indian batting was impressive, the same cannot be said of his bowling. There is no bowler who has been able to pick wickets consistently. Alzarri Joseph has four out of the two games and there always seems to be some loose balls on offer.
Failure to complete the game, even if the entire batting team recognized in India has been sacked, will hurt bowlers' confidence even more.

INDIA

India continues to find a way to win with a fairly young team that basically has only four players who have played cricket consistently for India prior to this series. That shows the bench strength of his system and also how the coach builds the team.
India's batting lineup has done well but the lack of conversions from fifties to hundreds is something they want to work on. How many times do you drive an entire West Indies ODI series without a single Indian batter scoring a century? The odds of an Indian batsman not scoring a century in that third game are also pretty good and something you can bet on.
We could see a few changes for this third and final game in the lineup and we think someone like Arshdeep Singh could definitely try.
The previous game was one of those rare occasions when India hit fewer fours and sixes than the West Indies but still ended up winning the game. Usually, betting on India to score more fours than their opponent is a relatively safe bet.
India's bowling has a few problems to solve. Avesh Khan was very expensive in his previous match, Shardul Thakur has also played runs (although he always tends to pick up a few wickets) and we believe Arshdeep Singh could get a chance to play in this match what that collective experience would affect even more!
In the current situation, we will bet on Yuzvendra Chahal to win wickets. He may have hit a few runs in his previous match, but he always challenges the batsmen to do something risky.

Pitch Report & Conditions

The match at The Queen's Park Oval will be competitive due to the pitch, which encourages bowlers and racquets alike. In both previous games, both pacers and spinners made good use of the conditions, but the batsmen found it a bit slow. After back-to-back thrillers, the team that bats first must set a goal of 300+ runs to win.

Toss Prediction

The West Indies opted to bat first on Sunday after opting to bowl first on Friday. More Port of Spain teams have recently won by batting first and we expect the captains on both sides to opt to bat first if they win the toss.

Weather Report

There is a chance of early afternoon thunderstorms hitting the game. Even if they miss, the game is consistently played in wet conditions.

Probable Playing XI for WI vs IND

West Indies

West Indies showed a somber character in both ODIs, but failed in both games in the final, narrowly losing it. The West Indies bolstered their weakness - their inability to bat 50 overs - and conquered it to make significant totals.
Playing XI
Shai Hope, Kyle Mayers, Shamarh Brooks, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (c and wk), Rovman Powell, Akeal Hosein, Romario Shepherd, Alzarri Joseph, Gudakesh Motie, Jayden Seales.

India

After India wins the series, there is a chance that India will call up a few players for their debut game. India have an opportunity to play Ruturaj Gaikwad, who has recently had a good track record in 50-over games, and Arshdeep Singh, the sensational young bowler, and try them in the series finals.
Playing XI
Shikhar Dhawan (c), Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Deepak Hooda, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohammad Siraj, Avesh Khan/Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal.

Key Players to Watch

Shai Hope it was the 100th ODI appearance the goalie-batsman will remember. He hit eight fours and three sixes while releasing his 13th ODI Century and 15th Century on all formats.
Nicholas Pooran the West India skipper hit six sixes and a four on his knock in the second ODI. He made 74 runs from 77 balls.
Alzarri Joseph the fast right-arm bowler dismissed Shreyas Iyer and Shardul Thakur in Sunday's game. He is the home team's leading wicket-taker in the series.
Shikhar Dhawan the captain found Sunday's batting much harder than Friday's. His 13 carries came from 31 balls, a strike rate of 41.93. Throughout his ODI career, his batting average is 92.68.
Axar Patel the bowling all-rounder in the second ODI - showed that he is also a match winner with the bat. He took 1-40 before returning to not win the game with a six as part of his 64.
Yuzvendra Chahal the leg spinner was expensive throughout the series but picked up three wickets. West Indian batsmen have tried to knock him out of attack but he keeps throwing unplayable deliveries.
