India Vs West Indies, 3rd ODI 2019: Match Prediction & KhelChamps Fantasy Cricket Tips

IND vs WI 3rd ODI – The riveting ODI action now moves to Barabati Stadium, Cuttack. This is the 3rd ODI of the series and also the last; two teams will hope to bring their A-game to the table and clinch the series.

As things stand, team India has clearly an upper hand over the Windies at this ground, winning 3 out of 3 against them. Keeping in mind that West Indies batting prowess is giving a headache to captain Kohli, he might opt for two wrist spinners in the final ODI.

Virat Kohli has scores of 4 and 0 in two matches played so far, and with series on the line, he will be rearing to go and make a mark. While West Indies in the form of Hetmyer and Pooran have two talented young batsmen who can change the course of the game within few overs.

If Indian openers fire again as they did in the previous ODI, it will be hard for West Indies bowlers to contain the powerful Indian middle order. While the Indian team must keep in mind the brutal strength that Windies batsmen possess.

Captain Kohli would surely want his players to raise their game and hold on to any and every chance that comes their way.
