ABOUT THE MATCH

After the exciting tie in the second match at Visakhapatnam, the two teams head for the third ODI in Pune with India leading the 5 match series 1-0.

Match Preview

Both teams have scored in excess of 320 in both the matches so far so no one is really struggling to score in this series. A better performance with the ball looks like what is needed to win matches in this series.

This is turning into yet another Virat Kohl Show after back to back centuries. The Indian skipper also crossed 10,000 ODI runs in the second ODI. India will hope the middle order get another chance to score some runs as that is one problem area for India.

But the hosts will be disappointed by how their bowling let such an imposing target to be equaled so easily. They need wicket taking options and with spots for the 2019 World Cup up for grabs, everyone will want a chance to showcase their talent. The decision to bat first might not have been the best one since the Vizag pitch didn’t help India’s three spinner attack in the second innings and despite the dew, the runs were flowing easily.

Shai Hope notched up a blistering century while Shimron Hetmeyer came agonizingly close to his second consecutive ton. West Indies are not struggling for runs at the moment. It’s their bowling that needs support.

Debutant Obed McCoy could’ve had the prized wicket of Kohli at 44 had the catch been taken but he finished with 2 wickets anyway. He will hope for more in his next match. More can be expected from skipper Jason Holder who dropped Kohli’s catch and gave away 50 runs in the 6 overs he bowled.

Pitch Conditions

 

The Pune pitch is not as batting friendly as the two so far in the series so we can expect a 250 par score. With this being another day night match, dew will play a factor and hence the toss could be vital.

Toss Prediction

 

India got the toss wrong in the second ODI and both captains will choose to field should they win the toss in Pune.

Our Match Prediction

India to win this match and make it 2-0.
