WI v IND 2022: COC Predicted Team India Playing XI for third T20I against West Indies

The third T20I will also be played at Warner Park, Basseterre.

Team India | GettyThe third T20I between West Indies and India will be played on August 2, 2022, at Warner Park, Basseterre. The series stands at 1-1 after the hosts won the second match on August 1 by 5 wickets.

The third T20I will have a delayed start, beginning from 9.30 pm IST. This was done to give players ample resting time given that the second T20I was also delayed due to logistical reasons.

Meanwhile, with the Indian team continuing to experiment with their combination in this series as mentioned by captain Rohit Sharma, Team COC presents to you the Predicted Playing XI for the Indian team for the third T20I.

While Suryakumar Yadav has been opening for India alongside Rohit Sharma for the past 2 matches, it might not be bad timing to introduce Ishan Kishan in the mix as well. Shreyas Iyer has failed to come good in the two matches he has been given chance at no.3 and with Kishan at the top, Suryakumar can slip in the middle order which suits him the most.

Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, and Dinesh Karthik form one of the most dangerous middle orders in T20Is and if they fire together, the Indian team might post humongous totals on the board.

India also has the option of bringing in Deepak Hooda, who apart from big-hitting also provides an off-spin option.

R Ashwin always adds something positive to the Indian team and his experience is invaluable for the youngsters. If India opts for Deepak Hooda, they can then bring Kuldeep Yadav into the mix as well.

The fast bowling contingent is expected to remain the same with Bhuvneshwar Kumar leading the way with Avesh Khan and Arshdeep Singh executing the roles handed to them by the team management.

COC Predicted Team India Playing XI for the third T20I against West Indies:

Rohit Sharma (C), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (WK), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh
