Port of Spain: The third and final ODI of the series between India and West Indies will be played today. India is currently leading the series 1-0. The first match of the series was cancelled due to rain. In the other match, India won the match. India would like to win the series by winning the match. Dhawan scored just 02 runs in the second ODI after scoring 01, 23 and 03 runs in the T20 series, making his comeback after an injury. So his return after the injury has not been good. Shreyas Iyer has added to the pressure on Rishabh Pant by playing superb innings in the last match.

Pant has the support of team management, especially captain Virat Kohli, but his failure and Iyer's 71-run innings in the second ODI have changed things. Former captain Sunil Gavaskar has also supported Iyer for the fourth position. He wants Pant to be sent down to number five. They think this wicketkeeper-batsman is best suited to trigger the team at the end of the innings. Kohli showed his brilliant form by playing 120 runs in 125 balls in the second ODI.
