Kuldeep to return, Jaiswal set to open in series decider: India's predicted XI against West Indies for 3rd T20I

Kuldeep to return, Jaiswal set to open in series decider: India's predicted XI against West Indies for 3rd T20I

IND probable XI against WI, 3rd T20I: The first two T20Is of India's tour of the West Indies did not go well. The guests haven't done well with the bat and have lost both games.

Hardik Pandya's group of young players needs to quickly turn things around and start getting wins if they want to stake their claim as the next generation of players.

Batting has been a problem because the lines haven't worked out and they've lost cheaply in both Tarouba and Guyana. Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan have both had trouble with the new ball.

Rahul Dravid might be tempted to give Yashasvi Jaiswal his white ball start, since he has done well in the IPL and in the Test series.

Also, Babar Azam's amazing century in the Lanka Premier League tied Chris Gayle's T20 record, which was a great one.
Sanju Samson has been used lower in the order, but his best spot might be at number 3, and fans might want to see him in that role before making a decision.

Suryakumar Yadav has done his best work when playing at number 4 or number 5. He could switch places with the impressive Tilak Varma in the middle of the order in his first game. Pandya would have to move down to hit sixth, but he has enough power and versatility to make it work for the team.

Since the first two games, Pandya's batting has been a big plus. He starts with the new ball and took three wickets in the last T20I.

Axar Patel gives the team more options, and even though he didn't bowl in the second T20I, he can offer both cheap control and powerplay overs if needed.

In slow conditions in Guyana, Arshdeep and Mukesh Kumar might keep their spots over Umran Malik and Avesh Khan. However, Pandya and Dravid might want to give all of their seamers a chance to play.

Kuldeep Yadav played the first match with the spin bowlers, but Ravi Bishnoi took his place. The left-arm leggie could be brought back to compete with Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran, and Shimron Hetmyer, who all hit with their left hands and are very good.
