Ishan Kishan Dropped, Yashasvi Jaiswal Makes Debut In Must-win T20I v West Indies. Here’s What Hardik Pandya Said


India made some interesting changes going into the must-win match against West Indies in the third T20I of the five-match series. The hosts are leading the series 2-0 in the series and one more win will see them pocket the series. Going into the must-win encounter, India made two changes – Yashasvi Jaiswal replaced Ishan Kishan while Kuldeep Yadav came in for Ravi Bishnoi.

“Don’t mind chasing. Obviously would’ve preferred to bat looking at the surface. Might get slower. It is what it is. Pooran has been batting very well. Would like to keep things simple to him, rather than trying a lot of things. Two changes, Yashasvi makes his debut, Kuldeep comes in for Bishnoi. Ishan misses out,” India captain Hardik Pandya said.

For the West Indies, Roston Chase replaced Jason Holder, who will miss the game due to a niggle.. Speaking at the time of toss, West Indies captain Rovman Powell said, “We’ll bat first. Looks a little slow wicket. Holder in the last game picked up a niggle to his knee. He misses out, Chase comes in. Guys are excited, we are on the doorstep of history. They have such quality players, have to keep them on their toes. If you become predictable, they will destroy you.”
