India vs. West Indies, Third ODI Preview
Will Virat Kohli be on the third straight ODI ton on Pune Saturday?
The scoreline should have been read from 1-1, but Indian captain Virat Kohli had admitted that the men in Blue were lucky to lead the series 1-0 after the first two ODIs.
Unlike expectations, the West Indies have been able to put pressure on India, especially with their batting performance. With scoring from Shimron Heater and Shay Hope centuries, visitors have managed to score more than 300 runs in both matches.
In Visakhapatnam on Sunday, West Indies were chasing 322 runs before losing momentum and playing tie in the final over.
Visitors are hoping to ride at their newly found speed in Pune, which is expected to speed up and bounce, which will make it easier for the batsmen. The third ODI can prove to be a fight between the two teams.
While India’s batting unit has been riding on the top-order performance, their bowling unit, especially the bowlers, were put under pressure by the West Indian batsmen. In order to deal with the threat, India has recalled its white-ball experts in Jupiter Bumra and Bhubaneswar Kumar.
Both India’s inexperienced West Indies are critical for the possibility of putting pressure on the batting line-up, which is hoping for hope so far.
The hosts will definitely be warned in the firepower in favor of Jason Holder because they see the missing lead in the ongoing series. On the other hand, visitors will expect to stop the run-machine Kohli and the Indians will go in the middle order.
India captain Virat Kohli on Saturday took the milestone during the fourth Test during the fourth Test against England at Rose Bowl Cricket ground in Southampton.
Captain Virat Kohli added another record in his figures as the first Indian player to score 4000 runs in the captain. In front of the five-match Test series, to complete 400 runs as captain in the Kohli Test, 544 runs required, and 29-year-old added 544 runs at an average of 68.00,
