Hope to be West Indies' Top Run Scorer
Jadeja to be India's Top Bowler
Shai Hope averages nearly 51 in the ODI format having scored over 4800 runs. He has made 43 and 63* in two innings this series. Bet on Hope to be West Indies’ top batter at 2/1 (3.00). Ishan Kishan looks in great form and has hammered back to back fifties. You can back him to be the top batter for India at 4/1 (5.00).
Our Prediction: Shai Hope to be West Indies’ top run-scorer at 2/1 (3.00).
Ravindra Jadeja bagged three wickets in the opening match and should be effective here if the pitch favours spin. Take a punt Jadeja to be India’s best bowler at 3/1 (4.00). Gudakesh Motie, the left arm spinner has troubled Indian batters and has picked five wickets in two games. Bet on Motie to be the top bowler for West Indies at 9/4 (3.25).
Our Prediction: Ravindra Jadeja to be India’s top wicket-taker at 3/1 (4.00).

Ishan Kishan has been the standout batter for India in the series. He blasted 52 off 46 deliveries in the first ODI and backed it up with a run-a-ball 55. You can take a punt on him to be the player of the match at 9/1 (10.00).

West Indies vs India Preview
It’s all to play for when the hosts West Indies take on India in the series decider on Tuesday. Take a look at two teams ahead of the match.
West Indies made a terrific comeback to win the second game by six wickets and level the series. Gudakesh Motie and Romario Shepherd picked three wickets each to dismiss India for 181. Shai Hope then made unbeaten 63 while Keacy Carty scored 48.
West Indies made a couple of changes in the last game, with Keacy Carty and Alzarri Joseph coming in. They’re likely to remain unchanged for this game.
Squad: Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Alick Athanaze, Shai Hope (c/wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Keacy Carty, Romario Shepherd, Alzarri Joseph, Yannic Cariah, Gudakesh Motie, Jayden Seales
India’s decision to rest Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli backfired in the second ODI as their batting unit collapsed from 90/0. Ishan Kishan (55) and Shardul Thakur (3/42) were star performers for India.
The visitors should bring both Rohit and Kohli back for the series deciding game. Axar Patel could keep his spot considering the pitch is likely to be spin-friendly.
Squad: Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (wk), Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma (c), Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar
