India vs West Indies 3rd ODI: Dream 11 prediction, captain and vice-captain

first_img India Today Web Desk Port of SpainAugust 14, 2019UPDATED: August 14, 2019 11:44 IST India vs West Indies 3rd ODI Dream 11 Prediction (AP Photo)After a convincing show in the second ODI, Virat Kohli and boys will look to seal the deal in the final ODI of the three-match series at the Queen’s Park Oval on Wednesday. With the opening game washed out, the Indians have taken a 1-0 lead and the last game of the series will decide if India will lift the ODI trophy as well after a clinical show in the T20I series.Interestingly, this could be the last time that the legendary Chris Gayle takes the field and the West Indies outfit would look to give him a grand send-off. Speaking during the 2019 World Cup, Gayle had said that the ODI series and the Test series that followed would be his last. But the Windies selectors kept emotions aside and decided to ignore him for the Tests. So, the third ODI could be the last time that the opener is seen in Windies colours.For India, it will be about keeping the foot on the pedal and not giving any inch away to the hosts. After an 11-innings phase where he didn’t score a century, Kohli roared back to register his 42nd century in the second ODI and more than the hundred, it was the way in which he guided Shreyas Iyer in the middle overs that made the knock all the more special.BatsmenThis match will possibly be the final ODI for Chris Gayle and the big-hitting Jamaican will look to end his 50-over career on a high. He failed in the first two matches and will surely look to make amends in the final game so leaving him out of the playing XI is out of the question.advertisementRohit Sharma should be the second-choice opener with the in-form right-hander also due for a big score after a rare failure with the bat in the second ODI.Virat Kohli hit a match-winning hundred in the last game and is the best option at No. 3. He was part of a 125-run partnership with Shreyas Iyer, who showed superb composure with the bat under pressure and hence, is a perfect choice for the No. 4 position.WicketkeeperJust like Rohit Sharma, India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant is also due for a big one and today just might be his day with the bat. Pant is reliable behind the stumps as well and can earn you a lot of points if he gets going.All-roundersCarlos Brathwaite has shown good form with the ball with three wickets in the last match. And he can demolish any bowling attack in the world on his day with the bat. Choosing him over Jason Holder might just pay off in this match.Ravindra Jadeja should be the second all-rounder your side as he is economical with the ball and is one of the best fielders in the world. He has also shown good form with the bat lower down the order.BowlersBhuvneshwar Kumar should be the first choice when it comes to picking fast bowlers as the Indian seamer has the ability to pick up wickets at the beginning when the ball is swinging and at the end as well with his death-bowling abilities being one of the best in the business.Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav has been India’s first-choice spinner and he repaid the team management’s faith with 3 wickets in the 2nd ODI. He will be a key player for India once again in the final match.Mohammed Shami and Sheldon Cottrell can be the final two players in your Dream XI. Both fast bowlers have been economical so far with Shami having taken 2 wickets at an average of 22 while Cottrell conceded just 49 runs and picked up a wicket in his 10 overs in the second ODI.Dream 11 team, WI vs IND 3rd ODI: Chris Gayle (vice-captain), Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (captain), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Carlos Brathwaite, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Sheldon Cottrell.SquadsIndia: Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kedar Jadhav, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Navdeep Saini.West Indies: Jason Holder (capt), Chris Gayle, John Campbell, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Roston Chase, Fabian Allen, Carlos Brathwaite, Keemo Paul, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Kemar Roach.Also Read | India vs West India 3rd ODI Live Streaming: Telecast channelsAlso Read | Everyone is confident of their position: Rishabh Pant ahead of West Indies vs India 3rd ODIAlso Read | 3rd ODI: High-flying India look to maintain clean slate vs West IndiesadvertisementFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
