STORY: India may have recalled its two key pacers for the remaining games of one day international series, looking at West Indies’ score of over 300 in both previous matches, said West Indies cricket team coach, Stuart Law, on Friday (October 26).
So far, India has dominated the series with a victory and a tie in the five match ODI series against India. However, both the games were high scoring and the second match was a close call, with West Indies’ batting line up showing noteworthy resistance to the Indian bowling attack on its own soil. After this, India added its star pace duo of Bhuwaneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah to their squad for the final three ODIs.
With the third game due on Saturday (October 27) in western India’s Pune, West Indies is looking to balance the scales with their first victory. We understand the enormity of it but we are not backing down, said Law on their rest of the journey.
Because of Law’s absence from the dressing room after a two match ban, West Indies’ all-rounder Marlon Samuels, Law said, was given a “different role”. Every game we are playing here it’s basically a final and Marlon has come in, basically to help the young kids, added Law.
The third ODI will be played at western India’s Pune on Saturday (October 27).
