WI vs IND Preview
- In white ball forms, West Indies snapped a seven-match losing streak at home.
- In the most recent game, Obed McCoy had the best bowling statistics for the West Indies (4-1-17-6).
- After 2018, West Indies has attempted five times to defeat India in a T20I series without success.
Tuesday’s third Twenty20 encounter in their five-match series pits West Indies and India against one another for the second time in less than 24 hours. After India won the first game by 68 runs and West Indies responded on Monday with a five-wicket victory, the series is now tied at 1-1. The match gets underway at Warner Park in Basseterre at 10:30 local time.
In this game, West Indies will be confident that they can repeat their victory from Monday at the same location. When Obed McCoy is at his best, anything is feasible.
India, which knows they have strong players in every position, won’t panic despite losing the most recent game. To take back the series lead, they will need to score more runs at the top of the order.
