Port of Spain - West Indies captain Jason Holder won the toss and put India in to bat in the third fixture of a five-match One-Day International (ODI) series at the Sir Vivian Richard Stadium in Antigua on Friday.

Comprehensively defeated by 105 runs in the second match in Trinidad five days earlier, the home side have brought in two senior international debutants with Kyle Hope, elder brother of wicketkeeper-batsman Shai Hope, replacing Kieran Powell at the top of the batting line-up while Sunil Ambris gets his first chance in the middle-order at the expense of Jonathan Carter.

Fast bowler Kesrick Williams is also playing his first ODI in place of fellow pacer Alzarri Joseph although he has previously appeared for the West Indies in T20 Internationals.

India field the same 11 for the third consecutive match as they seek the victory that will give them an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the series.

Jason Holder (captain), Evin Lewis, Kyle Hope, Shai Hope (wicketkeeper), Jason Mohammed, Sunil Ambris, Roston Chase, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Miguel Cummins, Kesrick Williams
