India will be up against the West Indies in the 3rd match of the 3 T20I series. India are dominating the series with a 2-0 lead and now seeking a whitewash with yet another win at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. In the previous encounter, Rishabh Pant was the Player of the match. Unfortunately, Rishabh Pant and Virat Kohli will miss the 3rd game as they have been handed a bio-bubble break by the BCCI.
Virat Kohli performed well in the previous game as he scored a half-century. With an unbeaten knock of 52, Rishabh Pant gave India a total to defend. People had their eyes glued on Ravi Bishnoi and Yuzvendra Chahal who did not let the West Indies chase the target down.
Though they failed to close the match, Rovman Powell and Nicholas hit some crisp shots during their innings. Roston Chase was also in the spotlight as he bagged wickets of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kolhi, and Suryakumar Yadav.
