Captains at the toss!
Virat Kohli: “We will bowl first. Dew will be a factor, we played a match against England and defending 380 proved to be tough. It’s a good opportunity to bowl first on this pitch. The mindset needs to be right, we have won many Tests after losing the toss, the focus should be on the larger picture. Winning toss does give a advantage, but you can’t play reckless cricket. One change for us, Deepak Chahar is out with a back injury, Navdeep Saini makes his debut.”
Kieron Pollard: “I’m not exactly sure about how the pitch would behave. It’s a matter of assessing the pitch and playing good cricket. The batting has been fantastic, we have faltered at the back end of the innings when we bowl, we have stressed on the things we need to improve. Happy faces and everybody want to improve. Hopefully, the openers will set-up a good platform for the others to take it forward. We are playing the same XI.”
Team news: Just one change in the India XI as debutant Navdeep Saini replaces injured Deepak Chahar. West Indies go into the decider with the unchanged XI.

Toss news: India skipper Virat Kohli finally wins the toss in the crucial series decider and Team India will bowl first.
Pitch report: “The spinners will like this pitch, there are some cracks and it might open up. It’s a little soft underneath, will help the ball to grip and turn. Dew is always a factor here, it will be a consideration for the team winning the toss,” said Sunil Gavaskar and Murali Kartik.
