Team India will look to clinch the three-match ODI series with a win against hosts West Indies tomorrow. After the first ODI was abandoned due to rain, Virat Kohli scored a fine hundred in the second game, which saw the Men in Blue go 1-0 up in the series. The skipper's 42nd ODI ton helped India post an above-par total of 279 for seven in their 50 overs, which proved a daunting task for the inconsistent Windies batting attack. The loss continued the West Indies' poor ODI form—they had won just two games in the recent World Cup—and will now need a dominating performance to get the better of the visiting side.
The track is expected to break up in the second innings, and, thus, toss could play a crucial role. Win the toss and bat first is usually the mantra here, as run-scoring in the second half gets difficult.
Wicket-keeper: Nicholas Pooran (9 credits)
Pooran had a good outing in the second ODI, as he scored 42 runs with the bat.

Pooran's career batting average that hovers around 45 further shows how useful he is, and Windies will expect a lot from him.
