India and West Indies lock horns at Port of Spain in the third and final match of the One Day International series with the hosts one-up after having won the second game as the first match of the series was washed out.

While Virat Kohli-led India are favourites and will be eyeing to lock the series 2-0, the home team is desperate to restore parity and go into the ICC World Test Championship with momentum on their side.

One individual level, Shikhar Dhawan will be eager to sign off from the Caribbean shores on a positive knot after having a poor run on the tour through the T20 International series and the two ODIs. He is not named in the Test squad and will be heading home after tomorrow’s match. A 23 in the second T20 International has been his top knock on the tour.

The battle between Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer will be another interesting aspect of the Indian batting order. A change in the respective position of the duo is not ruled out with Dhawan being a hard hitter and Iyer a craftsman who builds his innings stroke by stroke. Sunil Gavaskar has been strongly advocating Iyer for the No. 4 position ahead of Pant.

But for that to happen, West Indies’ batting unit will have to take more responsibility. It’s time talents like Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran rise up to the occasion for West Indies cricket to thrive.

The possibility of rain in not ruled out during the match. The Port of Spain according to meteorological department officials has 40% chances of rainfall. Even if full 100 overs might not be possible, there should be no threat to have enough action to produce a result.

A run feast is a strong likelihood at the Queen’s Park Oval with the ball is predicted to come on the bat nicely. Batting first will be a good choice on the wicket that tends to slow down as the game progresses.
