IND vs WI: West Indies and India are currently locking horns in the five-match WI vs IND 2022 T20I series. The series is currently led by the visitors by the margin of 2-1. The Rohit Sharma-led side so far has displayed great skills and are favourites to win the season.

Although the third ODI between India and West India saw the visitors tumbling the hosts, it also gave a mini heart attack to the Indian fans across the globe.

After India restricted West Indies to a total of 164 runs, skipper Rohit Sharma came out all guns blazing and looked in great touch. He was batting on 11 off 5 balls and also hit a six and a four before he pulled a muscle and walked off the field retired hurt.

BCCI then issued the formal statement and revealed that the Indian skipper had a back spasm and was monitored by the medical team. As he walked off the field, many speculations have raised regarding his availability for the 4th game.

But in what was a sigh of relief, Rohit at the post-match presentation revealed that he’s fine and is hopeful to play the fourth game.

“At the moment, it’s okay. We’ve got a few days till the next game, hopefully, it should be okay,” Rohit said.

What happened in the third IND vs WI T20I?

Opting to bowl first, India didn’t have the kind of start they would’ve wanted as West Indies openers smashed 57 runs for the 1st wicket. On account of Kayle Mayers’ 73 and handy contributions by Rovman Powell (23), Nichols Pooran (22) and Shimron Hetymer (20), the hosts posted a total of 164 runs on the board.

In reply, Suryakumar Yadav stole the show and played a blistering knock of 76 runs. He was well supported by Rishabh Pant (33*) as India completed a comfortable 7-wicket win to take a lead of 2-1 in the series.
