Will Deepak Hooda suit up for India against the West Indies in their third Twenty20 international match?
The third Twenty20 International of India and the West Indies’ five-match series will start on Tuesday at 9:30 IST.
In the second T20I at Warner Park in Basseterre, St. Kitts, West Indies upset Team India by five wickets, ending their winning streak in the 20-over event, which they had been dominating this year. The West Indies’ standout performance came from Obed McCoy. He claimed six wickets and held Team India to just 138 runs. West Indies subsequently responded by accomplishing their objective with four balls remaining and five wickets in hand. Deepak Hooda may therefore have a chance to reclaim his spot in the starting XI in the third T2OI. So with his century and a 47-run explosion off just 29 balls against Ireland in the two-match series, the striker became famous.
In the third T20I, we believe India should start with the following player.
Rohit Sharma: The Indian captain has been playing outstandingly in this series. In the first T20I, he scored 64 runs off just 44 balls, but in the following match, he was out for a duck. Rohit continues to be one of the most dependable batters for the visitors despite all of these issues.
Suryakumar Yadav: Team India’s prodigious batter had sporadic success in the first two games. It will be intriguing to see whether India chooses to start him as the third T20I is about to commence.
Shreyas Iyer: Iyer only scored 10 runs off of 11 balls after being dismissed for a duck in the first T20I. It will be fascinating to see if management sticks with Deepak Hooda or gives him a chance.
Rishabh Pant: The wicketkeeper-batter was dismissed for 14 runs in the first T20I, but scored 24 runs in the second game off just 12 balls. In the third T20I, he could get an opportunity to shine and play crucial innings.
Hardik Pandya: Despite his subpar performance in the first two games, nobody should write out Hardik Pandya. This year, the all-around player has excelled in the shortest format and has been in great shape.
Dinesh Karthik: Despite scoring just seven runs in the second T20I before being dismissed. Dinesh Karthik has been in outstanding form this year, and Team India can unquestionably rely on him.
Ravindra Jadeja: Ineligible for the ODI series against the West Indies was Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja is a versatile athlete. He did, however, make a comeback in the first T20I, hitting 16 runs and grabbing one wicket, and he added another 27 runs and a wicket in the second T20I.
Ravichandran Ashwin: After taking two wickets in the first T20I, Ravichandran Ashwin’s off-spinner claimed one wicket in the second T20I. Throughout the course of his whole four-over session, he let up 32 runs. Despite only managing to score 10 runs with the bat, Ashwin is still a quality player to take into account.
