The third and final T20I between India and West Indies at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai is basically a dead rubber clash. Hosts India have been clinical in this series having won both of the previous games by comprehensive margins. While they recorded a 5 wicket victory in the first T20I at Kolkata, skipper Rohit Sharma's unbeaten 111 propelled them to a 71-run victory at Mumbai. However, the Caribbean nation would want to salvage some pride in the final encounter even though the series is lost.
India have also rested three of their key bowlers in Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav and Umesh Yadav for this match in order to keep them fit for the upcoming tour of Australia. That is a big relief for the visitors as Bumrah and Kuldeep have tormented them throughout the series. With the duo not featuring in the match, the Windies will hope that their batsmen can finally fire with the bat.
Having already won the series, India might want to make some experiments in this match. The likes of Shreyas Iyer and Washington Sundar might get a game. Siddharth Kaul is expected to start in Bumrah's slot in the XI as well.
As far as the Windies are concerned, they might make a couple of changes as well. They could consider bringing in Rovman Powell, who was dropped in the second T20I, in place of Khary Pierre or Nicholas Pooran. The 20-year old Sherfane Rutherford might well get his first game of the
