4 big changes expected as we look at the WI vs India 3rd ODI best predicted playing 11 for both the teams.
2-0 is the golden number for Team India at the moment. It’s been two matches in the ODI series vs West Indies, and India have won both of them; although not convincingly. While Team India won the first ODI by 3 runs, the second ODI saw India winning the match by 2 wickets.
The two ODIs so far saw Team India Playing like a complete team. There have been equal contributions from most of the Indian players. The likes of Sanju Samson, Shubman Gill, Axar Patel, Deepak Hooda, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, and Shreyas Iyer did well in both matches.
With the series already in the bag, the third ODI shall be a dead rubber for the Indian team. But it gives an opportunity for Team India to test its bench strength. With a few debutants waiting for their chances, it would be interesting to see what playing 11 combination Team India adopt.
So, with a lot of changes in the final ODI, what could be the best predicted playing 11 for Team India for the 3rd ODI vs West Indies? Let’s find out in the article. Before that, let’s look at the key match details and Team India’s official squad. Please note, with so many changes expected, it is difficult to predict, but we are trying our best.

Playing 11 for Both Teams:
Team India would definitely look to play their bench, and the two names that should find a place in the batting department include Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan. One of these two or both should definitely play the final ODI. But, in whose place will they come in?
Well, one of Shikhar Dhawan or Shreyas Iyer along with Shubman Gill will have to make way for these two. With Shikhar Dhawan being the primary captain, it is unlikely India would see another new captain Shreyas Iyer make his captaincy debut. So, Shreyas Iyer will sit out for this game, and Ishan Kishan should play at 3.
Shubman Gill did well in both the ODIs, and Ideally should have continued to play. But just like Shubman, Ruturaj also deserves a go. With the ODI format during Ruturaj more, he should definitely make his ODI debut tomorrow. So, even as Shubman Gill did really well, the call for bench strength should see Ruturaj in place of him.
The rest of the batting line-up should remain the same. This includes Suryakumar Yadav at 4 and Sanju Samson at 5, who did a brilliant job while keeping. All-rounders should include Deepak Hooda at 6 and Axar Patel at 7. Whereas in the bowling, Yuzvendra Chahal and Avesh Khan should be confirmed starters as there is no second spinner to replace Chahal.
For the other two bowlers, Arshdeep Singh should definitely make his debut. He should most likely come in for Mohammed Siraj, who will be rested. Prasidh should also make a comeback after being dropped for the 2nd ODI. He should come in for Shardul Thakur, who could be rested as well.

For West Indies, the change in the final playing 11 looks unlikely. They did well in both the ODIs, but just couldn’t finish the line. So, captain Nicholas Pooran should stick to the same playing 11 as the 2nd ODI.
