India vs West Indies; 3rd T20I

With the series at 1 – 1 right now, the third T20I will be crucial for both India and the West Indies, but, there has been a slight change in the match, the start of the match has been pushed back by 90 minutes. Instead of 10:30 am local time (8pm IST), the match will now start at 12 pm local time (9:30 pm IST), with the toss at 11:30 am.

The reason in change of timings was to give the players extra time to recover after the second T20I on Monday began three hours behind schedule following a delay in the arrival of the players luggage and kits from Trinidad, the venue of the first game on 29 July.

“Following the delayed start on Monday, the teams have agreed to start the third Goldmedal T20 Cup match at a later time to ensure that the players receive adequate rest and recover time for the back-to-back matches in St Kitts and in consideration of the back-to-back matches to come in Florida. “Stadium gates will open at 10:30am. Tickets are still available from the stadium box office for the matches in St Kitts with mounds/grounds tickets at US$15/EC$40 and seats from US$30/EC$80, or can be purchased directly through Windies Tickets, presented by Mastercard at “tickets.windiestickets.com” to save direct to your mobile device.” said a CWI official.

After the third T20I, both the sides will be flying off to Lauderhill in Florida, where the final two matches of the series will be played, which are on August 6 and 7.
