WI vs IND, 3rd T20I Pitch Report:
The pitch offered a lot to the bowlers and the batters had to struggle in the last game. Despite India posting only 138 runs on the board, West Indies managed to chase the total with 4 balls to spare. One can’t expect any major change in the way the pitch might behave, hence, this might also be a low-scoring game.

Top Picks for WI vs IND Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
He made 64 runs off 44 deliveries in the first match and helped India put a total of 190 runs in 20 overs. This was his first half-century in T20Is this year. However, just when everyone thought, he is back to his regular form, Rohit was dismissed for a duck in the last game. He would be eager to showcase his skills and gain his form. Hence, he becomes a critical pick for this match and one of the best captaincy choices as well.
He has been promoted in the batting order and he has opened the innings in the last 2 matches along with Rohit Sharma. In his first assignment as the opener, he scored 24 runs off 16 deliveries and added 44 runs for the first wicket. In the last game, he was dismissed for just 11 runs. In order for him to deliver consistent performance, India needs to send him in the middle order and if that happens, we might witness another absolute carnage from his bat.
He opened the batting for West Indies in the last game and went on to score 68 runs off 52 deliveries. He kept on playing his choice of shots despite wickets falling at the other end.
Top Picks – All-Rounder
Without a doubt, Hardik Pandya has been in the best form of his life currently. The 28-years-old all-rounder has made contributions with both bat and ball in the last few matches. In the first game, he was dismissed for one run. However, he came back strongly in the second game and made 31 off 31 deliveries and helped India reach 138 runs in 20 overs.
Top Picks – Bowlers
The left-arm pacer tested the Indian batters in the last game and picked the first fifer of his T20I career while doing that. McCoy opened the bowling attack for West Indies in the 2nd T20I and bowled a maiden over including the wicket of Rohit Sharma on the first ball. He gave away just 7 runs in the last 2 overs and picked 5 wickets.
He made his T20I debut last month against England after his impressive run in IPL as well as domestic cricket. The 23-years-old left-arm pacer has managed to deliver decent performances in the three matches that he has played till now. He picked 2 wickets for 24 runs in the first match against West Indies and followed that with 1 for 26 in the last game.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
He finished the ODI series against England with a bang as he scored 125 runs and helped India clinch the series. However, he has not been the same in this series as the southpaw has managed to score only 38 runs in 2 matches. He showed some of his power-hitting skills in the last game as he made 24 runs at a strike rate of 200.
