Shikhar Dhawan is leading the Indian squad, which is in a position to break records. The chance to defeat West Indies at their stadium for the first time now belongs to Team India. After two thrilling last-over victories in the first two ODIs of the series, Team India has the series already in their favor. Since the two teams started competing in the bilateral ODI series in the West Indies in 1983, India has failed to defeat the two-time ODI World Cup champions in a run of three or more games. They recently easily beat the West Indies in India, but if they win the third and final ODI on Wednesday at Queen’s Park Oval, they would have won the ODI series there for the first time.

India will have won 13 consecutive ODI series overall. Additionally, if India wins on Wednesday, it would be the first time since Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka that they have lost an away series. India has won every game in an ODI series four times in Zimbabwe (2013, 2015, and 2016), and once in Sri Lanka (in 2017).

If India wins the third and final ODI, it would also be the first double whitewash against a team in a calendar year. Only once previously has a side won both of its ODI matches against a rival in a single year. Zimbabwe had previously defeated Bangladesh in this manner in 2001 (at home by a score of 4-0 and in Kenya by a score of 3-0), and Bangladesh had already defeated Kenya in this manner in 2006. (3-0 both at home and away).

India already broke the previous record on Sunday by winning the most series against a team by beating the West Indies in the ODI format for the 12th time in a row.

The head coach, Rahul Dravid, would be tempted to try out a few of his bench players in this circumstance, but he will need to strike a careful balance between keeping things going and assessing the strength of his bench.
