India vs West Indies, 3rd T20I: Preview, timing, where to watch, possible team

India will be aiming for a T20I series clean sweep against the West Indies

Chennai, November 10: India will be aiming to complete a clean sweep when they take on a battered West Indies in the third T20I in Chennai on Sunday (November 11) even while looking to test the bench strength.

Having sealed the series with a comprehensive win in the second T20I at Lucknow riding on skipper Rohit Sharma's brilliant ton, the home team would look to give reserve bench players like Shreyas Iyer, Washington Sundar and the uncapped Shahbaz Nadeem an opportunity before it embarks on the tour of Australia. Here's MyKhel preview of the India vs West Indies third and final T20I.

The selectors have rested pacemen Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav and wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav for this game, allowing them to be in the best physical condition ahead of the tour to Australia. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and the young Khaleel Ahmed will be expected to form the pace attack and provide early wickets. The spin department may see the return of Yuzvendra Chahal in the absence of Kuldeep while Krunal Pandya can look to build on an impressive start to his international career.

Skipper Carlos Brathwaite admitted they had to make do with the resources available and the team will aim to end the series with a consolation win. Established names like Kieron Pollard, Darren Bravo and Denesh Ramdin haven't fired yet. Among the bowlers, Oshane Thomas has impressed the most with his pace and ability to take wickets but has lacked support.

Yuzvendra Chahal is almost certain to return but it remains to be seen from among pacer Siddharth Kaul and local offie Washington Sundar who gets the nod. It will be interesting to see whether India will go with two pacers and three spinners or three pacers and two spinners. Middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer too will be hoping to get a hit in this tie, mostly in the space of Manish Pandey.

Skipper Rohit Sharma was at his best during the Lucknow T20I following up his exploits in the preceding ODI series but the other batsmen haven't made sizeable contributions. The captain's opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, K L Rahul and Rishabh Pant among others would like to have a few more runs under the belt.
