IND vs WI Dream11 Prediction | 3rd T20I | Virat & Pant Rested

India vs West Indies will play in the 3rd T20I of the West Indies tour of India 2022 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. We will cover IND vs WI Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

India:

India have sealed the series and can make a lot of changes in their playing XI for the final T20I.

Virat Kohli has left the bubble and will not be available for this game. India have been clinical both with the bat and ball. 

Rishabh Pant was the pick from the batters in the last game and played a brilliant knock of 52 runs in the last game. Venkatesh Iyer also played a handy knock of 33 runs in the death.

With the ball, again the spinners were spot on and controlled the flow of run. In the end Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel bowled two tight overs and helped the team to cross the line.

With new faces expected in this game, India might look to figure out some key players and also test out their bench strength.

West Indies:

West Indies are yet to win a single game in this series but came very close in the last game.

Opting to Bowl first, Sheldon Cottrell had given them the perfect start by picking up the early wicket. 

In the middle overs, Roston Chase bowled brilliantly and picked up 3 big wickets. 

They leaked too many runs in the death overs and that will be something that they will like to improve on. 

With the bat, Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell were the key men and took the game as deep as possible. 

Powell played a brilliant knock of 68 runs and will be their key man in this game as well.

West Indies will look to end the tour on a positive note and win the final game of the series.
