Cricket: India v West Indies 3rd T20I – Our Sports Betting Prediction

The third match of the T20I series between India and West Indies will be played from tomorrow until 15 December at the Wankhede Stadium in Mubai. Even though West Indies has surprised punters, batting very well in the first games of T20I, there is nothing to suggest they will be able to beat host country India in their next match. 

Last match

In their last match, West Indies was able to keep their momentum going as they stunned Team India in Trivandrum. Batting first has proven to be India’s weakness in the T20Is, and the second T20I proved to be no exception. 

The team was not able to start well. However, in the later stages of the match, Shivam Dube was able to score a half-century for Team India. West Indies bowlers Kesrick Williams, Hayden Walsh and Sheldon Cottrell came back to limit India to just 170. Lendl Simmons, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Puran then scored to let West Indies win by a margin of eight wickets.

Line-up

India was missing pace bowler Mohammed Shami for the first match. However, he will likely replace Ravindra Jadeja, who did not impress in the first two matches. Wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav is also likely to replace Yuzvendra Chahal, who was not effective last match. 

Other than that, there is not likely to be much change in the line-up, as West Indies can only make one change, replacing Jason Holder with Keemo Paul. Both teams are not likely to change much, as they could win the series tomorrow.
