What: India v West Indies, Third One Day International

Where:  Green Park, Kanpur

When: Wednesday Nov 22, 8 a.m. GMT

Live Stream/TV info: Sky Sports 1, 3:30 a.m. GMT

Weather: No weather troubles expected. Accuweather predicts temperatures of up to 30 degrees or more with a lot of haze around. It's a day game, so it'll be hot all-round.

Overview

The series is level at 1-1 after the West Indies pulled off a heist to win the second ODI by two wickets and three balls still remaining. It was the Windies' first ODI victory in five games and although there was a lot of scruffy bowling from India, the visitors will take heart from their batting display, chasing down 288.

It's all to play for now in the final ODI and while it's not exactly a World Cup win or anything even remotely close, a series victory will do wonders for the Windies' confidence while India are looking to get their players in a positive mindset before they head to South Africa.

India have played 11 games at Kanpur, winning eight and losing three while the Windies have played two and won both, although, both of those games were in their glory years. The surface is conducive to scores of 200 and over. If both teams perform like they did in the first game it should be a cracker of a match.

Key men

India

Virat Kohli is simply in a different league to most other players at the moment. He's scored 185 at an average of 92.50 in the series and tops the charts for most runs scored in 2013. His flair and his fire are something to behold. Although India pack a star-studded line-up when it comes to talent, Kohli is the player who stands head and shoulders above the rest.

West Indies

The Windies have not really had an "X-Factor" type player in a while. Although Chris Gayle is talented, he's often blown hot and cold and is out with an injury anyway. Sunil Narine does the job in Twenty20s, but hasn't quite managed to replicate that in the 50-over format. Somebody who has sprinkled a little bit of hope is Darren Bravo who has scored two consecutive 50s in the series. He's often called Little Lara, in reference to the similarities he has to Brian Lara. Those similarities are yet to fully bloom with the bat in hand, but at least he's made a positive contribution.
