The third encounter of the five-match T20I series between West Indies and India is on the horizon. Scheduled for Tuesday, August 8, this face-off will unfold at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.
West Indies has orchestrated a remarkable turnaround after their setbacks in the Test and ODI series. Guided by Rovman Powell’s leadership, the home team has surged ahead with a crucial 2-0 advantage in the ongoing T20I series.
The preceding matches have been nail-biting affairs, with West Indies managing to emerge victorious through inventive means. In the latest showdown, they edged past India’s Men in Blue, securing a narrow two-wicket victory while chasing down a target of 153 with seven balls to spare.
Though Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell initially led West Indies on a comfortable path, Yuzvendra Chahal’s intervention for India posed a threat. Yet, Akeal Hosein’s impressive performance with the ball ensured a smoother journey for the Caribbean side, avoiding further obstacles on their way to triumph.
