India will play in the 3rd T20I against the West Indies. Team India, led by Rohit Sharma, are looking to get back on track after being defeated by the hosts by 5 wickets in the second T20I. With the series at 1-1, the Men in Blue will be happy to take the lead.
Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to field. India made one change with Deepak Hooda filling in for Ravindra Jadeja. He also started bowling for India and gave only 1 run in his left.
Rohit Sharma felt discomfort in his back
But after that, it was all about Kyle Mayers scoring half a century. Riding his 73 from 50 balls, the West Indies scored 164 runs in 20 overs. He was ably supported by Rovman Powell and Shimron Hetmyer in the death overs when WI specifically went after Avesh Khan. Khan gave up 47 runs in his 3 overs.
India got off to a good start when Rohit and Suryakumar Yadav got off to a good start, but in the 2nd left of the innings after hitting a six and a four, India was dealt a big blow when Rohit walked away from the crease. He felt a little discomfort in his back after hitting a border on the third delivery of the 2nd over and was injured.
This is a big blow to India ahead of the Asian Cup if his injury is serious. There is no official word about his injury yet.
