India Vs West Indies 3rd test kicks off at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. India is desperately looking for a clean sweep. Thanks to Australia winning a cliffhanger against South Africa, India has moved on the second position in ICC Test Rankings, pushing South Africa to the 3rd position. England leads the list of test rankings. A win in Mumbai will further strengthen India's position in the rankings.
A win here means a lot to the home team also in terms of the confidence factor. Before heading towards Australia for a long tour, a 3-0 win would be a confidence booster. Players like Laxman, Dravid, Ojha, Ashwin, Ishant, Sehwag, Gambhir and Yadav have struck form and hopefully they continue this streak in this test match.
West Indies has opted to bat first and has displayed a confident start. Indian bowlers have toiled hard to clinch wickets. But in due course of time, the pitch behaviour will change leading to a completely different scenario. A win here for the West Indies team would be a dream come true. Beating the number 2 team will be a complimentary gift before they conclude the tour.
India is playing Virat Kohli in place of Yuvraj Singh. Bowling department includes Ashwin, Sharma, Ojha and Aaron. Players worth watching in the visiting team would be Barath, Edwards, Bravo, Sammy, Bishoo and Rampaul. Stay tuned for more live cricket online previews and reviews.
