INDIA WEST INDIES Third ODI Chennai : India aim at series win in third ODI

Powered by two back-to-back wins, India would look forward to bank on their team work and renewed vigor to clinch the series in the penultimate One-Day International cricket match against West Indies on Saturday.
The hosts will take heart from the fact that they staved off starkly different yet challenging situations to come out victors in the last two matches. After seeing his team take an unassailable 2-0 lead, Indian skipper Rahul Dravid may try out some players with the focus on prolific middle order batsman Yuvraj Singh, who is staging a comeback after recuperating from a knee injury. Apart from Yuvraj, the inclusion of veteran leg-spinner Anil Kumble in the squad is a strong indication that he will also get into the final eleven as the countdown for picking the team for the World Cup has started. India Team (from): Rahul Dravid (Captain), Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Ghambir, Dinesh Kaarthick, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ajit Agarkar, Ramesh Powar, Harbhajan Singh, S Sreeshanth, Zaheer Khan, Robin Uthappa, Yuvraj Singh and Anil Kumble.
West Indies Team (from) : Brian Lara (Captain), Chris Gayle, Shivnaraine Chanderpaul, Runako Morton, Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith, Denesh Ramdin, Lendl Simmons, Ian Bradshaw, Rayad Emrit, Darren Powell, Devon Smith and Jerome Taylor.

India vs West Indies Third ODI

Venue : MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai

The spiritual home of cricket in Tamil Nadu since the start of the Presidency matches in 1916, the MA Chidambaram Stadium, noted for its sporting pitches, not only holds the record for the most number of Test wins for the nation but has produced the most number of decisive results among Indian grounds.
Better known as Chepauk, taken from the area of its existence, the first Test played here was in 1933-34 between Douglas Jardine's England and CK Nayudu's India. For long, Test matches at Chepauk.
But more than the records, what stands out at Chepauk is the atmosphere and the crowd, reputed to be the most knowledgeable and appreciative in the country. This was proved when those present gave a standing ovation to Saeed Anwar after his record breaking 194 against India in the Independence Cup match in 1997 and again when Pakistan won the Test match in 1999. A truly overwhelmed Pakistani team even made a lap of honour in appreciation of the spectators' sporting behaviour.
