India will attempt to squelch any chance that West Indies could pull off a home series victory on Friday, in a match the will live stream from Antigua — the third match of a five-game one-day international series in which India has already scored a dominant victory after the series opener was washed out, ending in a no-result verdict.
West Indies, on the other hand, have been forced to make changes in their XI after absorbing a humbling 105-run drubbing on June 25, a match in which only two Winds batsmen managed innings of more than 29 runs on their way to a meager 205 total in answer to India's impressive 310. Wicketkeeper Shai Hope managed the only respectable total for the hosts, posting 81 before succumbing LBW to India's newest spin sensation, 22-year-old Kuldeep Yadav.
Kyle Hope and Sunil Ambris will join the West Indies lineup to replace the out-of-sorts Kieran Powell and Jonathan Carter.
In his first ODI outing for India, and only his second match for the national side overall, Kuldeep claimed three wickets while being reached for a respectable 50 across nine overs. The youngster saw no action in the recently completed Champions Trophy in England, which saw India's two leading spin bowlers — Ravichandran Ahswin and Ravindra Jadeja — both struggle. But Kuldeep's arrival gives India a dominating spin attack once again. Kuldeep's first outing for India came in a Test against Australia in March, when he took four wickets in the first innings.
