With all to play for, India and West Indies will look to put a strong playing XI ahead of the decider. India suffered a big blow as Deepak Chahar has been ruled out due to an injury and has been replaced by Navdeep Saini. Saini is a strong contender to fill the vacant pacer's slot and Virat Kohli can surprise a few with his playing XI. On the other hand, West Indies are expected to come out all guns blazing as a series-win is quite palpable. All the Windies batsmen have found form at some point or the other in this series, but what Pollard needs is a good start by their pacers who were swept away by the Indian batsmen in the last ODI. All in all, an exciting contest awaits us.
