Mumbai: After defeating West Indies by 107-runs in the second ODI match, India will look to wrap up the series, which is currently tied at 1-1.

The home side, which lost the first match of the series, has made one change – debutant Navdeep Saini comes as a replacement for injured Deepak Chahar, who sustained a back injury in the last match.

 

Apart from that one change, India’s line-up remains the same for the decider. The West Indies also kept the same squad that lost the previous match.

Coming back to the toss, news from the ground is that India won the toss and elected to bowl first. This is the first time that Virat Kohli had won the toss in the three-match ODI series.

After winning the toss, Indian captain Kohli said, “We will bowl first. Dew will be a factor, we played a match against England and defending 380 proved to be tough. It's a good opportunity to bowl first on this pitch.”

India’s line-up: Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli(c), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(wk), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Navdeep Saini

 

West Indies’ line-up: Evin Lewis, Shai Hope(w), Shimron Hetmyer, Roston Chase, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard(c), Jason Holder, Keemo Paul, Alzarri Joseph, Khary Pierre, Sheldon Cottrell
