West Indies won the toss and invited India to bat first
In the third T20 match played at the historic Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata, the West Indies captain won the toss and invited the Indian team to bat first keeping the dew conditions in mind. Team India, which has already taken a 2-0 lead in the series, made four major changes in its playing-11. Young fast bowler Avesh Khan was given a chance to debut in international cricket in this match. Apart from them, Rituraj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, and Shardul Thakur were also included in the playing-11 in this match.
IND vs WI: Team India scored 184 runs
IND vs WI 2022: After losing the toss, opting to bat first, the Indian team scored 184 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in the stipulated 20 overs. Suryakumar Yadav and Venkatesh Iyer continued their form of the previous match here as well. Together they put on a brilliant partnership of 91 runs for the fifth wicket. Surya played an innings of 65 runs in 31 balls. He hit 7 sixes in this innings. The same, Iyer scored 35 not out off 19 balls with the help of 4 fours and 2 sixes. Both the batsmen together added 86 runs in the last 5 overs. The highest score made by Team India in the last 5 overs in T20 cricket.
Earlier today, Rituraj, who came to start the innings in place of Rohit Sharma, could not take advantage of the opportunity. He only made 4. Captain Rohit Sharma, who came to bat in the middle order, could also make only 7 runs. Ishan Kishan scored 34 and Shreyas Iyer scored 25 runs.
Another bad batting for West Indies
Chasing the target of 185 runs, West Indies’ batting went on exactly the same as it did in the previous match. Once again the start was bad. Deepak Chahar gave an amazing start to Team India by dismissing both the opener batsmen on the score of only runs. After that Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell scored runs.
Powell played a short but exciting inning of 25 runs off 14 balls with the help of two fours and two sixes. But after his dismissal, the entire West Indies team was scattered like a pack of cards. In the end, the Windies could only reach the score of 167 runs and lost the match by a margin of 17 runs. Nicholas Pooran, continuing his previous match form here, played an innings of 61 runs. This is his third consecutive fifty. Romario Shepherd also scored 29 runs off the balls in the last over. But, the West Indies team could never play unitedly in this series. Due to this, he had to face a clean sweep defeat in the T20 series after the ODI series.
