Here are the Live Updates of the 3rd T20I match between West Indies and India, straight from Guyana:

  • 20:18 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: New bowler, same result!

    Yuzvendra Chahal is introduced into the attack and a rude welcome followed from Kyle Mayers. The ball was there to be hit and the left-hander slammed it over mid-wicket for a huge six.

    West Indies 25/0 after 3.1 overs

  • 20:16 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: WI on top!

    A boundary off Arshdeep Singh followed by two off the bowling of Axar Patel – Kyle Mayers and Brandon King are looking in form. Safe batting from the duo and this is a great start for West Indies.

    West Indies 19/0 after 2.5 overs.

  • 20:11 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Arshdeep to follow!

    Arshdeep Singh is handed the ball in the second over and he has been keeping his balls wide outside the off-stump. While the runs are not coming easily, the chances of a wicket are drastically lower with this kind of line and length.

    West Indies 4/0 after 1.3 overs.

  • 20:07 (IST)

    IND vs WI: Match begins!

    The game has finally started after the delay and as usual, Hardik Pandya bowls the first over. Early wickets will be important as Windies players have the knack of scoring fast runs at the beginning of the innings.

    West Indies 3/0 after 0.5 overs.

  • 20:02 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Match delayed!

    This is just bizarre. Both teams were out in the middle but it turns out the inner circle was not marked! No way the match can be started and players have walked out of the ground! 

  • 19:59 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Interesting decision!

    Ishan Kishan has been brilliant for India till now against West Indies and it was quite interesting to see Yashasvi Jaiswal replacing him in the playing XI. Once again, there is just one left-handed batter in the top 3 and with the World Cup just round the corner, this decision has left a lot of people confused.

  • 19:54 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Rovman Powell at the toss!

    We’ll bat first. Looks a little slow wicket. Holder in the last game picked up a niggle to his knee. He misses out, Chase comes in. Guys are excited, we are on the doorstep of history. They have such quality players, have to keep them on their toes. If you become predictable, they will destroy you.”

    IND vs WI Live: What Pandya said at toss

    “Don’t mind chasing. Obviously would’ve preferred to bat looking at the surface. Might get slower. It is what it is. Pooran has been batting very well. Would like to keep things simple to him, rather than trying a lot of things. Two changes, Yashasvi makes his debut, Kuldeep comes in for Bishnoi. Ishan misses out.”

  • 19:32 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Match Report!

    “Little bit cloudy. It’s the same pitch as the second T20I. 66 meters on one side, 67 on the other, and 77 down the ground. Pitch looks good. It’s a bit drier than the second T20I. No green blades of grass. It’s still very hard. Spin will play a little more leading role in wicket-taking.” – Darren Ganga.

  • 19:28 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Debut for Jaiswal!

    Yashasvi Jaiswal will be making his T20I debut as he was handed the cap in the team huddle. It will be interesting to see which player misses out.

  • 19:21 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Dravid under fire!

    Indian cricket team head coach Rahul Dravid has come under a lot of fire following India’s disappointing run in the competition. However, there are a few like former pacer Dodda Ganesh who have claimed that Dravid has faced criticism because of the fact that he does not speak out much in public.

  • 19:11 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Expensive Mukesh Kumar

    Pacer Mukesh Kumar has leaked most runs for India and there is a possibility that he could be replaced with Avesh Khan or Umran Malik. West Indies are in an ideal position for their first series win over India since 2016.

  • 19:06 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Challenge for bowlers

    Hardik and Arshdeep Singh were able to swing the new ball in the second game and would be looking to repeat that on Tuesday. Chahal, playing after a gap of two months, has been impressive in the series. Bishnoi’s frequent googlies were not able to put pressure on the opposition, forcing him to rethink about his plans.

  • 18:53 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: India spinners need to take charge

    The bowlers, especially the spinners, need to find a way to contain a rampaging Nicholas Pooran. The southpaw has been batting with disdain against the likes of Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravi Bishnoi. Left-arm spinner Axar was not even used in the last game.

    IND vs WI Live: Impressive Tilak Varma

    Mumbai Indians star batter Tilak Varma left everyone utterly impressed with his 51-run knock in the second T20I. It was his only second appearance in international cricket and he took India to a respectable total, on the day when every other Indian batter batter failed. 

  • 18:11 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Failure of India’s top-order

    The shortest format demands the batters to go hard from ball one and that is something India’s top-order, comprising Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill and Suryakumar Yadav, have not been able to do. The top-order’s failure has put extra pressure on the likes of Sanju Samson and rookie Tilak Varma, who has taken to international cricket like fish to water.

  • 18:00 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Must-win match for India
