India vs West Indies 3rd Test Match Preview
India meets West Indies in the 3rd test match out of the four match series at the Darren Sammy Stadium. India leads the series 1-0 with an emphatic win in the first one and a great fight back by West Indies in the second match.
While Indian team would still be high at confidence, they would be stung by the remarkable fightback from the home team. The second test was almost going in favour of the Indian team till the end of third day. Rain started spoiling the game from the second half of third day which continued almost full fourth day. Indians were hopeful of bowling out West Indies on the final day. But West Indies batsmen came out with a completely different outlook. They shocked the Indian bowlers by the aggressive batting and stretched the game into the draw. Roston Chase's 137 runs innings was worth a watch. This innings would always be remembered as one of the most resolute innings in the history of West Indies cricket. What a great match saving effort from the West Indies batsman!

St. Lucia as a test venue has hosted four test matches. Let us tell you this venue provides more draws than results. Three out of the four matches have been resulted in a draw. India played a test match here in 2006 which ended in a draw too. The only match that ended in a result was between West Indies and Bangladesh in 2014.
We might expect a lot of runs on this pitch. There was a layer of green observed but that would disappear with first hour of play. India's plan of five bowlers should work well as clinching wickets should be the priority on a batting friendly wicket.
Let us hope Rain God doesn't play a spoil sport again. Although the forecast is of cloudy conditions, even play of full four days might give us a result. Having seen some aggressive cricket from West Indies in the last test match, we might see a good tussle between the two teams.
