India A Tri-nation series in England, 2018
India A vs Windies A, 3rd ODI Match Preview| IN-A vs WI-A WHO WILL WIN
After succumbing to a seven-wicket loss at the hands of England Lions in the opening fixture, India A would be looking to shrug off the demons and start afresh as they aim to address their fledgling campaign when they take on Windies A in the third fixture of the tri-nation series on Monday, June 25th, 2018.
After a dream starts to their tour where we saw the Indian A toddlers smash the third highest List A score against Leicestershire, the ‘Boys in Blue’ failed to replicate their starts against English Lions. Rishabh Pant with 64 was the highest run-scorer as the team stumbled to 232 in 50 overs, and any chances of them defending it were squashed by a pristine 128 from Nick Gubbins and a 68-ball-54 by Hain, as English Lions strolled home with death-defying ease.

Their opponents in Windies A, are also coming off an 87-run thrashing at the hands of England Lions, thanks to a breathtaking 134-ball-145 by Sam Hain and a 51-ball-58 by skipper Mullaney to propel the hosts to 5-318 in 50 overs. In reply, the Windies started well with the openers putting up a 50-run stand, but an all-round bowling performance from the Lions meant the Windies were never really in the chase and barring fifties from Jason Mohammed and Rovman Powell, no other batsman could kick on and get a substantial score and were eventually bowled out for 231.
