India vs West Indies 3rd T20 Betting Tips - Runs aplenty on offer in series decider

The T20 international series decider will take place in Mumbai between India and the West Indies. Virat Kohli has already played one blistering innings in the series while the consistent form of Shimron Hetmyer and Evin Lewis deserves to be backed.

India Form

After winning the 1st T20 India went on to lose the 2nd by eight wickets in Thiruvananthapuram. Batting first India posted a total of 170 runs, under par for the surface as Shivam Dube top scored with 54 runs while Virat Kohli scored 19 after his magnificent 94 runs in the 1st T20.

India’s bowlers couldn’t keep the Windies batsman quiet as star spinner Yuzvendra Chahal went at 12 runs to the over. West Indies scored the winning runs with nine balls to spare to level the series.

India are still comfortable favourites to win but the competitiveness of the West Indies in the opening two T20’s makes the hosts a risky bet.

India News

Deepak Chahar has been poor with ball in hand for both the opening T20’s so I can see a change coming. Mohammed Shami has not yet played so is sure to get a game. Shreyas Iyer has yet to produce his best in the middle order which could see Manish Pandey get a chance.

West Indies Form

West Indies were close to an upset win the 1st T20 but Virat Kohli couldn't deny them victory in the 2nd T20. West Indies won by eight wickets in the 2nd T20, Hayden Walsh was magnificent with the ball taking 2-28 as they restricted India to 170 runs. 

Lendl Simmons top scored with a brilliant 67 runs while opening partner Evin Lewis scored 40 runs, the same score he got in the 1st T20. Shimron Hetmyer contributed 23 runs following his 54 in the 1st T20 and I believe there is value in backing him and Lewis in the run scoring markets.

While still underdogs, the West Indies will be a popular choice in the outright win market at 3.00.

West Indies News

With the series on the line it is unlikely that the West Indies will tinker too much with their line-up. Nicholas Pooran came in for Dinesh Ramdin in the 2nd T20 and batted magnificently so he will in all likelihood remain in the side.

India vs West Indies Head to Head

India have won seven of the last eight T20 internationals against the West Indies but the Caribbean-outfit won the last encounter by eight wickets in Thiruvananthapuram. Lendl Simmons scored 67 runs as the West Indies chased down India 170 runs. 

India vs West Indies Betting Odds

India are favourites at 1.40 but many punters may fancy the West Indies at 3.00 for the outright win considering their form. In the run scoring markets Virat Kohli is tipped to be the best Indian batsman at 3.40 while West Indian Shimron Hetmyer is valued at 5.00 in the same market.

Bookmakers bet365 is offering 7.50 for their to be a score of 100+ in the match. West Indies are priced at 2.20 to have the highest opening partnership while India are paying 1.66 in the same market.

India vs West Indies Match Up

The two pitches thus far have been very batsmen friendly so I expect it to be a similar battle once again. West Indies top order is firing on all cylinders which has put India’s bowlers under the sort of pressure they seldom face in home conditions. Should conditions persist it will be interesting to see how India’s bowlers react.
