India vs West Indies, 3rd ODI Match Prediction. The third and last game of the ODI series between India and the West Indies will be played this coming Friday.
It will be dead as far as the series is examined. In their first two games, India was ruthless and took a secure lead in the series. As far as the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League is involved, 10 points are up for grabs, and West Indies will look to bag those. In the previous ODI, Nicholas Pooran succeeded the toss and invited team India to bat. The hosts had an unsteady beginning but a trustworthy partnership between KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav allowed them to acquire control of the game. West Indies fought back to restrict the Men in Blue to 237.
The batters’ disappointing performance followed as none of them could adapt to the conditions. The lower-order batters labored hard but couldn’t get their unit across the border as they were bundled out for 193, suffered the game by 44 runs. In the last game, West Indies need to be at their complete best to complete the ODI series on a high slope.
Match: India vs West Indies, 3rd ODI, West Indies tour of India, 2022
Date: February 11, 2022, Friday

The pitch at Narendra Modi Stadium is on the balanced side. Both batters and bowlers have equal chances to get benefits. We have already witnessed the pacers get guidance with the latest ball and wish them to upset the batters prematurely. The spinners will get some assistance from the surface as the ball cultivates to carry a bit as the game moves forward.
The Bright clear skies with no clouds will welcome both sides on the coming matchday. The temperature in Ahmedabad is expected to hover between 14 and 29 degrees Celsius.
Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna
Shai Hope (wk), Brandon King, Shamarh Brooks, Darren Bravo, Nicholas Pooran (c), Jason Holder, Odean Smith, Akeal Hosein, Fabian Allen, Alzarri Joseph, Kemar Roach
He has gathered up six wickets in two games at an average of 6.83, an economy of 2.15, and a strike rate of 19. Although he only completed 5 runs from 8 balls on Wednesday, the skipper is a fine white-ball batter and made a half-century in the starting match of the series.
He has contributed 56 runs in two games at an average of 28 and a strike rate of 62.22 & Brooks earned his ODI debut in January 2022, has made 193 runs in five matches. Team West Indies will hope more from thi youngster. Looking down on this batter might cost a pretty penny to men in the blue team.
KL Rahul was replaced with Ishan Kishan lowering out ahead of Wednesday’s win, with Rishabh Pant first in the innings alongside Rohit Sharma. It looks like the finest XI available for India, and we would be surprised to see any modifications to the unit for this match.
Captain Kieron Pollard neglected out on the second ODI in Ahmedabad due to an injury expected to keep him out of this match. Nicholas Pooran will captain the side again, just as he performed during the tour of Pakistan the prior year. We expect West Indies to take the field with the same XI in this game.
Having conquered the series in the last game, India will be confident and looking to make a spotless clean sweep. The Caribbean side has to be at its absolute best to avoid a whitewash. India has a good proportion to their flank and the winning momentum and is expected to win the final game of the ODI series.
