Popular Betting Odds For WI vs ENG, 3rd T20I Today Match Prediction, Cricket Betting Tips
Top Batsman for West Indies- Nicholas Pooran (4.50)
Though Pooran did not get much time to showcase his abilities in the first T20I, he took the Caribbean side to the winning platform with his unbeaten 27. He again backed his side after two early dismissals in the second T20I and hammered 24 off 22. He is a dominant player of the shorter format and will come out as an efficient batter top the order to back his side again in the third T20I.
Top Batsman for England – Jason Roy (3.75)
Roy slammed an astonishing century off just 36 balls in the warm-up game and showed he is ready to go all in the series proper. He is anyways an aggressive batter and will be looking to provide a quickfire start to the visitors. With the absence of Jos Buttler at the top of the order, the burden will be on Roy to lead the way for England. So far he has amassed 51 Runs in 2 games.
Top Bowler for West Indies- Jason Holder (4.00)
Holder is the key bowler for West Indies having bagged 6 wickets in 2 games with an impressive 4.17 economy rate. He is a reliable batsman down the order and his steady medium-pace has already procured good results for him on the Bridgetown surface. He is a safe pick as a bowler here considering the good results his spell has produced so far in the series.
Top Bowler for England- Adil Rashid (3.50)
Adil Rashid is rated pretty highly in England and his 77 wickets in 70 T20Is are testimony to that. Eoin Morgan trusts the leg-spinner a lot and certainly, Rashid will test the West Indies batters with his variations. Before the start of the series, the pitch was likely to help the spinners less but Rashid proved that wrong after bagging one scalp in the first match and two in the last match. He is expected to fare well again with his leg break bowling in this contest.
