India eked out 251 for four off 50 overs on a slow pitch in North Sound, Antigua in the third ODI, after the first match was washed out and the tourists cruised to victory in the second.
However, they have nothing to lose and good performances in the remaining couple of matches in this series will give them some much needed confidence as they seek to qualify for the 2019 ODI World Cup. Yuvraj Singh combined with Ajinkya Rahane, taking India to 100-run mark but the southpaw was dismissed right after. If West Indies are to shake things up and more importantly stay alive in the series, they'll have to find a way past India's strongest suit: a top order that, by now, must be making runs as they sleepwalk.
"We know that they will come at us guns blazing, especially with us as the underdogs of the tournament, I'm sure they would like to get a win against us but we're prepared to absorb that pressure and put it back on them".
As for skipper Virat Kohli, he seemed quite impressed with the senior cricketer as he showered praise on the 35-year-old.
West Indies got starts from teenaged opener Hayley Matthews (46), captain Stafanie Taylor (45), Chedean Nation (39) and veteran Deandra Dottin (29) but none carried on to a significant score as the innings folded for 204 in the 48th over.
The Indian spinners - Poonam Yadav (2/19), Deepti Sharma (2/27), Harmanpreet Kaur (2/42) and Ekta Bisht (1/23) - shared seven wickets among themselves to rattle the West Indian batting line-up.
But then India's frontline spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Ravichandran Ashwin swung the match decisively in their team's favour.
In the last game, MS Dhoni played a blistering, match-winning knock for the Indian team. The fourth match will be critical for them not because the series is online but it is also the test of their mental strength and how far the current crop can take West Indies further.
In this India vs West Indies match, skipper Virat Kohli could drop out of form Yuvraj Singh to open a space for young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant. We'll surely look into [making changes]. Virat Kohli might be tempted to make a few changes in the playing XI as well.
