Bet Now

India will face West Indies in the last game of the tour at Eden Garden, Kolkata on 20th February 2021. India have already wrapped up the series and would like to win the last game of the series as well. West Indies are still searching for their first win on the tour.

India are now on a winning streak of 8 T20Is games. With the solid performance of both batting and bowling departments, they have defeated West Indies in the last 2 T20s. Debutant Ravi Bishnoi has handled the pressure of his first international appearance very well and has taken 3 wickets in the last 2 games. Also, Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant are in good touch in the Indian middle-order batting unit.

West Indies’ team would like to end this tour on a winning note but hosts are not letting go of momentum from the hand. By looking at the power hitters both teams have, Sunday’s game might be turning into a thriller one at Eden Garden.

India Preview

The Indian team will be looking to whitewash the Windies in the T20  series when they face visitors at Eden Garden, Kolkata on 20th February 2021. West Indies are standing in front of hosts to break India’s winning streak of 8 games. The Indian opener failed to give a good start to an inning when they were asked to bat first in the last match. Former skipper Virat Kohli handled the pressure well in the middle order and scored 52 runs from 41 balls.  Indian wicket-keeper; Rishabh Pant (scored not out 52 runs from 28 balls) has managed to put up a stand of 72 runs along with Vyankatesh Iyer (scored 33 runs from 18 balls) and helped his team to score 186 runs on the board.

Indian bowlers lost momentum while defending the target in the last game. Windies’ batters have launched attacks in the middle overs but India’s experienced pacer Bhuvaneshvar Kumar bowled a brilliant spell in the death overs which helped the Indian team to register a comfortable win by 8 runs. He gave only 29 runs in his spell of 4 overs taking 1 wicket. He gave just 4 runs in the 19th over of the match which was a match-winning moment for the hosts.

The Indian team has sealed the series and the squad is looking well-balanced ahead of the last game. They will now try to give chances to other batters like Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shreyas Iyer by keeping the upcoming T20 World Cup’s calculations in mind. 

Key Players: Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Ravi Bishnoi.

India Predicted Playing XI:

Rohit Sharma (C), Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer/Suryakumar Yadav, Ruturaj Gaikwad/Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant (wk), Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Harshal Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar

West Indies Preview

West Indies have choked up in the last few overs of the 2nd T20I and lost the game as well as the series. They will now try to win at least one match on this tour when they face India in the last T20 at Eden Garden on Sunday. After winning the toss, Kieron Pollard invited India to bat first in the 2nd T20I. Windies’ bowlers bowled well initially but failed to take wickets in the middle overs. Once again Roston Chase bowled brilliantly and tried to put pressure on the Indian Middle order. He took 3 important wickets by offering 25 runs in his spell of 4 overs. Other bowlers went expensive and India set a target of 187 for the visitors.

While chasing the target of 187 runs, once again Nicholas Pooran played well-constructed innings of 62 runs from 41 balls to put up a partnership of 100 runs for the 3rd wicket along with Rovman Powell. Rovman Powell also smashed Indian bowlers to score not out 68 runs from 36 balls only with 5 huge sixes. Despite these 2 superb innings, West Indies couldn’t manage to win the game in the last overs and ended up as a losing side.

Although Windies have power hitters on their side, the team is lacking in experience and that costs them in the last 2 T20Is in this bilateral series. Now they will try to end this tour on a good note by winning the last game at Kolkata when they face hosts again to avoid a whitewash.

Key Players: Rovman Powell, Nicholas Pooran, Roston Chase, Sheldon Cottrell

West Indies Predicted Playing XI:

Kyle Mayers, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (VC, wk), Roston Chase, Rovman Powell, Akeal Hosein, Kieron Pollard (c), Jason Holder, Romario Shepherd, Sheldon Cottrell, Odean Smith

Weather Conditions

The weather will be partly cloudy on Sunday with temperatures ranging between 29°C and 18°C. The wind will be flowing from the Westside at 16 km/h. The pitch has favored spinners in the first 2 T20 games.

Venue Details

The T20I series is set to be played at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The oldest ground in India can accommodate more than 90000 spectators.

Toss: To Bowl

In total 10 T20Is played at Eden Gardens so far, the team batting second has won 6 times. The team winning the toss prefers to chase the target here. But India won the 2nd game while defending the target.

Indian bowlers have managed to restrict visitors in the 2nd T20 game with superb death bowling spells. The Indian squad is looking strong in front of visitors. West Indies’ batters couldn’t finish the game for the team although they were almost close to equalizing the series. On the other hand, the Indian middle-order looks more promising and will try to put pressure on the Indies' bowlers in the last game.

We predict that India will defeat the West Indies.
