West Indies will look to pull one back in the third and the final T20I against India on August 6 (Tuesday) at the Province Stadium in Guyana after going down in the first two games. After playing the first two matches in Florida in the USA, the series will shift to West Indies.
For India, there is the chance to reward some of IPL’s most consistent players in what is essentially a dead rubber. The likes of Rahul Chahar and Deepak Chahar is likely to get an opportunity and will hope to cash in as they won’t get a more convenient chance than this. On the batting front, KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer might also get a nod ahead to cement their place in the playing XI.
West Indies, on the other hand, have made one change to their squad for the third T20I. Fabian Allen has come in place of Khary Pierre for the final game. The host has struggled for consistency, which has hurt them badly so far in the series. The batting unit has also failed to live up the expectations and will have to pull up their socks to avoid a whitewash. With 14-months to go for the ICC World T20, they will be keen to finalise their combination and bring in more young talent to add to their tally of World Cup trophy.
Here are Dream11 Fantasy League Tips:
First of all, it is crucial to select a team which has players who will surely play in the game. As they say in cricket, you don’t score any runs in the dressing room. Similarly, a player who is not playing cannot score points for you. Dream11 has brought a change in its rule by which you can alter your team even after the toss. Thus, you can pick your team according to the playing XI of both sides.
Secondly, it is pivotal to pick the right combination of captain and vice-captain. A captain gets twice the points whereas the deputy of the team will 1.5 times the points. Thus, it is imperative to select the big in-form players as your respective captain and vice-captain. It is also crucial to get top-order batsmen in the team as they are likely to score the significant chunk of the score. Furthermore, it is pivotal to check the pitch conditions and select the team accordingly.
There is no injury update of any cricketers from both India and West Indies camp.
India’s Predicted Playing XI:
Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Rahul Chahar, Navdeep Saini
West Indies’ Predicted Playing XI:
John Campbell, Fabian Allen, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Carlos Brathwaite, Keemo Paul, Sunil Narine, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas
Province Stadium in Guayana is likely to produce a batting wicket when India and West Indies play against each other on August 6. The deck will get easier to bat on as the wicket will get easier with the team batting second having three of five matches played. Thunderstorms are forecast in Georgetown, Guyana just before the start of play which can compel the captains winning the toss to bowl first.
