With the series evenly poised at 1-1, India Women and West Indies Women play each other in third and final ODI at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. Both ODIs have produced thrilling encounters although India come into this game with the momentum after a 53 run win on Sunday. The likes of Stafanie Taylor and Punam Raut have stood out for their respective sides in either ODI. With the venue also remaining the same for this game, both teams are well versed with the overlying conditions, which should pave the way for a grandstand finish to the ODI series

Injuries: Natasha McLean retired hurt in the previous game and could play no part on Wednesday.
West Indies Women:
West Indies Women should field their strongest side with Afy Fletcher also finding her feet in the second ODI. The big news is Hayley Matthews’ return from suspension. She should come in for Natasha McLean, who injured herself in the previous game. The rest of the side should ideally remain the same with Stafanie Taylor and Shemaine Campbell being key in the middle order. Afy Fletcher and Anisa Mohammed are in decent form as well which gives West Indies a good chance of a series win on Wednesday
Hayley Matthews, Stacy Ann-King, Shemaine Campbell, Stafanie Taylor, Chedean Nation, Kyshona Knight, Sheneta Grimmond, Shabika Gajnabi, Afy Fletcher, Anisa Mohammed, Aaliyah Alleyne.
Stafanie Taylor has been the standout from either side with 114 runs and two wickets to her name. While she is a must-have pick in the side, the likes of Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur also warranty a spot. The returning Hayley Matthews is considered to be among the best all-rounders in the world. In spite of this being her first game in a long time, she should be picked along with Jemimah Rodrigues, who is due for a big one at the top of the order. Chedean Nation and Shemaine Campbell should also score some runs while spin-bowling all-rounder, Deepti Sharma is also one to watch out for in this game. The likes of Afy Fletcher and Poonam Yadav should also pick a wicket or two as they round the team off.
