India vs West Indies 3rd ODI Playing XI Prediction: India made a world record on Sunday by sealing their 12th consecutive series win in the ODI format against the West Indies — the most against a team. In this backdrop, head coach Rahul Dravid might be tempted to try out some of his reserve players but he will have to maintain a fine balance between keeping the momentum and testing his bench strength.
For the third ODI, India started Prasidh Krishna ahead of Avesh Khan as the only change in their playing XI. West Indies on the other hand see Jason Holder, Keemo Paul and Keacy Carty come in for AlzarriJoseph, Rovman Powell and Romario Shepherd.
