The 3rd T20 match of the five match series between India and West Indies will be played at St Kitts Warner Park Stadium tonight. The match will start at 8:00 PM IST.
It was an ominous outing for team India yesterday as west indies won the toss in the 2nd T20 international. Rohit Sharma got out on the very 1st ball of the match, which reared up off a length, hitting Sharma’s top half of the bat and getting him caught in the short third man. The Indian batsmen got quick runs but in an attempt to be ultra-aggressive during the power play, they lost their top three batsmen for a meagre score of just 40 on the board.
Now in the present scenario, India is under substantial pressure to perform well in the 3nd T20 match and regain their lead in the series. This match also becomes more important for the Indian team, because if they don’t win this they will find themselves in a precarious position, needing to win the next two matches back to back. So be ready for a humdinger of a match.
