After West Indies defeated India in the second T20I to square the series at 1-1, the series between India and West Indies now appears to be exciting.
India scored 138 runs while batting first in the suspenseful game’s final over, which the West Indies squad was able to match with 4 balls to spare and clinch a decisive victory. Obed McCoy won the game’s player of the match award thanks to his incredible ball skills (4-1-17-6).
In the upcoming game, India will try to make a comeback, and the West Indies will also want to maintain their winning streak. We anticipate another thrilling battle on Tuesday.
How the pitch will play?
Chasing is the more popular option because the surface here primarily aids the bowlers. West Indies has won seven and lost two of its eleven games played here. In the last match, we saw bowlers wreaking havoc. We may see similar sight today too, but both teams have the potential to hit it big on any pitch.
What to expect in the middle?
If no wickets are lost in the first six overs, we can anticipate the surface to favor bowlers and India to reach 45 runs. It’s expected that West Indies will score 40–45 runs in the powerplay.
India has a superior middle order, but West Indies has more powerful hard hitters in their lower order. In the final four overs, WI can score 50 runs or more if all goes as planned, compared to India’s 40 or more runs.
West Indies and India both have a chance to score 160 runs or more in this medium-scoring contest. Because both teams have strong heavy hitters, the only competition will be between the bowlers.

IND vs WI 3rd T20I: Who Will Win?
Team India, under the direction of Rohit Sharma, will be trying to bounce back after suffering a shock defeat at the hands of the hosts. India, which had an easy win in the first game, lost the second T20I by a margin of five wickets. The Men in Blue are eager to face their opponents since the series is currently knotted at one game each.
Even after dismissing India for a measly total, WI took it to the last over to chase the target which shows problems in their batting order. Owing to the same, India are favorites to win the match. The team that will chase will have an upper hand over the other.
