India vs West Indies Live Score: India and West Indies play the 3rd T20I at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday.
Kohli: I think it's a great wicket to score runs. We have been tentative while batting first. T20 cricket goes that way. We were about 15 runs short (in the last game). Fielding is an important part in this format. If we had taken our chances, things could have been different. As a batsman, you try to get into your zone first. This is a ground where you can always catch up. Those who get a fifty, need to ensure that they carry on and score those extra 25 runs for the side. We've got two changes - Shami comes in for Jadeja, Kuldeep comes in for Chahal
Pollard: We're gonna field first. Obviously here, dew plays a factor when you bat second. It's a new wicket, hopefully we can restrict them to a chaseable total. I think it was a good performance (in the last game). We're always looking to improve and there are a couple of areas to improve on. It's a fresh wicket and hopefully, our guys can make use of it with the new ball. We're unchanged!
West Indies (Playing XI): Lendl Simmons, Evin Lewis, Brandon King, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran(w), Kieron Pollard(c), Jason Holder, Khary Pierre, Hayden Walsh, Sheldon Cottrell, Kesrick Williams
India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Shami
West Indies win toss, elect to bowl in the 3rd T20I against India at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
"This is a pitch where the ball comes on to the bat nicely. There is a bit of movement initially due to the sprinkling of grass. It's a bit damp and new ball might move a bit but it's a white ball, so there won't be too much movement. There will be plenty of runs on offer and it should be a high scoring game. Captains have opted to chase because it gives them an idea of the run rate that they need to maintain. The other factor is clearly the dew which aids the team batting second." - Sunil Gavaskar assesses the 22 yards.
