Bangalore: Smarting from their 55-run defeat in the second one-dayer, India A will look to get back to winning ways and seal the three-match one-day series against West Indies A when the two sides clash in the final game, at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, here, on Thursday.
The hosts started the series with a thumping 77-run win over the Caribbean side, mainly orchestrated by captain Yuvraj Singh’s brutal 89-ball 123.
But in the second game, the visitors bounced back with a morale-boosting victory to level the series 1-1.
The 25-year-old Jonathan Carter’s impressive 132-ball 133 defused India’s bowling attack and helped Windies A post a challenging 279 for six, before they bundled the hosts out for 224.
The Indian batsmen failed to fire collectively as there wasn’t even one half-century in their innings.
But going into Thursday’s game, India would again depend on their batting unit with the likes of Robin Uthappa, Mandeep Singh, Unmukt Chand, Yusuf Pathan and Kedar Jadhav expected to come good. Yuvraj would once again be the cynosure. No doubt, the dashing left-hander would be looking to continue his good form.
