|Date & Time||Tuesday August 6, 2019, 10:30 AM (EDT)|
India -188 / West Indies +150
India and the West Indies will play their final T20I at the Providence Stadium in Georgetown, Guyana. India lead the series 2-0 after winning both T20 matches that were played in Florida.
India were dominant in the previous T20 as they defeated the West Indies by 22 runs. Rohit Sharma continued his supreme form by scoring 67 runs off 51 balls. Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan also contributed with the bat to help the team reach a total of 167 from the 20 overs. The bowling was very impressive for India as Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Krunal Pandya bowled extremely well. Pandya took 2 vital wickets while Kumar was very economical at the start of the innings. India are playing a young side but the team is performing well and they will be confident in their ability to win this final match.
The West Indies are in a bad position having already lost the series. The batting has been poor from the West Indies all through the series and it is an area that must improve in this match. Rovman Powell showed some promise in the previous match as he scored 54 runs off only 34 balls. No other batsman scored over 20 runs for the West Indies. The bowling has been solid from the West Indies as players like Oshane Thomas and Sheldon Cottrell have been effective. This could be a tough match for the West Indies as all the momentum is with India.
Providence Stadium should make the West Indies feel more comfortable as they are back on home soil. That being said, India should still receive great support as they have a large number of traveling fans. The conditions at the Providence Stadium should allow for high scores.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick India to win this match. India look in great form and will be very confident having won their previous 2 matches. All the momentum is with India and I see them being good enough to win this match and take the series 3-0.
