Captains at the toss!

Virat Kohli: “I think it’s a great wicket to score runs. We have been tentative while batting first. T cricket goes that way. We were about 16 Runs short (in the last game). Fielding is an important part in this format. If we had taken our chances, things could have been different. As a batsman, you try to get into your zone first. This is a ground where you can always catch up. Those who get a fifty, need to ensure that they carry on and score those extra 27 Runs for the side. We’ve got two changes – Sh ami comes in for Jadeja, Kuldeep comes in for Chahal. “

Kieron Pollard: “We’re gonna field first. Obviously here, dew plays a factor when you bat second. It’s a new wicket, hopefully we can restrict them to a chaseable total. I think it was a good performance (in the last game). We’re always looking to improve and there are a couple of areas to improve on. It’s a fresh wicket and hopefully, our guys can make use of it with the new ball. We’re unchanged! “

Windies have won the toss and will bowl first. How many will Kohli’s men set? #INDvWI | FOLLOW htt… (PJ8G1Q

West Indies have won the toss and will bowl first in the third and final T 20 I against #TeamIndia. #INDvWI BCCI (@BCCI)


Toss news: West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard wins toss and invites India to bat first in the series finale.

Pitch report: “This is a pitch where the ball comes on to the bat nicely. There is a bit of movement initially due to the sprinkling of grass. It’s a bit damp and new ball might move a bit but it’s a white ball, so there won’t be too much movement. There will be plenty of runs on offer and it should be a high scoring game. Captains have opted to chase because it gives them an idea of ​​the run rate that they need to maintain. The other factor is clearly the dew which aids the team batting second, “said Sunil Gavaskar alongside Murali Kartik.

So, another 18 minutes for the toss and the players are on the field, warming up for the series decider.

The local lads are up for the challenge !
