India vs West Indies, 3rd T20-I
December 11th, 7:00 PM IST
Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
The Wankhede Stadium is one of the highest-scoring grounds in the country with scores of over 180 being expected on Wednesday. There might be a tinge of grass on the surface with the ball coming on nicely on the bat. The spinners will come into play in the middle overs although dew could go against them.
The weather is clear for this game with a few clouds expected to make an appearance as well. The temperature is hovering around 28 degrees Celsius with humid conditions expected in Mumbai for this game.
No injuries are reported from either side
Probable Playing XI
India is expected to make a few changes with Mohammad Shami and Kuldeep Yadav set to make a comeback. There is a possibility of Sanju Samson also playing although the trio of KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma should remain intact. Manish Pandey is an option as well considering India’s inability to kick on in the death overs. Washington Sundar should keep his place as the off-spinner has stood out as a genuine wicket-taker with Yuzvendra Chahal likely to make way for Kuldeep Yadav
KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey, Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammad Shami
West Indies might ponder bringing in Keemo Paul for Khary Pierre given the nature of the pitch. Apart from the one change, they should remain unchanged with the highly-rated duo of Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran in amazing form. Adding Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis’ dependable partnership to the equation, only sweetens it. Kieron Pollard and Brandon King will play as the floaters while Sheldon Cottrell leads the bowling attack alongside Hayden Walsh and Kesrick Williams.
