India vs WI, 3rd T20I: Records that can be scripted
The match is set to be held at the Wankhede in Mumbai.
India, who had won the first encounter, saw WI stage a remarkable comeback to pocket the next match.
We look at the records that can be scripted in the third T20I.
Chahal can set a milestone and an unwanted record
Yuzvendra Chahal is the joint-highest wicket-taker for India alongside R Ashwin (52).
He needs a wicket to gain ascendancy.
The wrist-spinner can also surpass the likes of Mustafizur Rahman (52) and Sohail Tanvir (54).
Chahal has conceded 64 sixes in T20Is.
If he gets hit for one more six, the spinner will join Shakib Al Hasan (65) at the top for an unwanted record.
Pollard, Simmons and Lewis can script crucial feats
Kieron Pollard (990) needs 10 more to register 1,000 career T20I runs.
He could become only the fourth Windies player to achieve this mark.
Joining him, could be opening batsman Lendl Simmons (983 runs).
Evin Lewis (67) needs three more sixes to surpass Marlon Samuels (69).
He also needs 67 runs to register the mark of 900 in T20Is (833).
India aiming for third T20I series win in 2019
India have lost two, won two and drawn one T20I series so far in 2019. Virat Kohli's side will be eyeing a third series victory this year and their second one against WI as well.
Rohit and Kohli battling for supremacy in T20Is
He needs 52 more to register the feat of 500 runs against the Windies.
Kohli (431) needs 69 runs to register the mark of 500 as well.
Rohit and Kohli will be vying to score and keep the record for the most runs in T20Is.
Kohli (2,563) is one ahead of Rohit (2,562).
Rohit one six away from scripting this massive record
Rohit is just one maximum away from reaching the milestone of 400 international sixes across formats.
The senior cricketer has hit 399 sixes in his international career so far (232 in ODIs, 52 in Tests and 115 in T20Is).
He could become the first Indian to achieve this mark.
Shahid Afridi (476) and Chris Gayle (534) have hit 400-plus sixes in international cricket.
