WI vs IND: Playing XI for team West Indies

Odean Smith rested, while Dominic Drake comes in.


West Indies will be happy to face the blues in the back-to-back day for the T20I series as the victory of last night is still cheering up in the veins of the Maroons and to make it a bonus point, the hosts will continue their form tonight too.

West Indies has brought just one change as they bring in Dominic Drake in place of Odean Smith, for the 3rd T20I.

Captain Pooran said “We wanted to bat first as well, this is a ground where chasing is the preferred option. But now we need to put up a good score on the board and defend it. Credit to the bowling group, they performed well as a unit, they did come hard at us, but we stuck to our task. We did speak about the left-arm option, we spoke about it during the team meetings. That’s why we have one change today – Dominic Drakes is in, he replaces Odean Smith. We are backing our boys and it’s important to have the right guys in the right positions.”

West Indies (Playing XI): Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran(c), Shimron Hetmyer, Devon Thomas(w), Rovman Powell, Dominic Drakes, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Obed McCoy
