IND vs WI 3rd  T20I, Live Score: Nicholas Pooran hit an unbeaten fifty but India continue to remain in the driving seat against the West Indies in the ongoing third and final T20I at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Venkatesh dismissed Pollard in the 9th over before removing Jason Holder in the 11th over, putting West Indies five wickets down. Harshal had got the better of the dangerous looking Rovman Powell, before also giving Roston Chase his marching orders as well.  Deepak Chahar had given India the best possible start, removing both West Indies openers inside the first three overs. Chahar struck in the final ball of the first over to remove Kyle Mayers before also giving Shai Hope his marching orders. Chahar, however, had to limp off the ground after tweaking his hip. EarlierSuryakumar Yadav scored a fine 31-ball 65 as India managed to post a total of 184 for five. Suryakumar and Venkatesh Iyer (35* off 19) added 91 runs for the fifth wicket after West Indies had pegged back India with quick blows. Rohit Sharma came to bat lower down the order but failed to get amongst the runs. Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer had steadied India’s ship after Ruturaj Gaikwad was dismissed early, adding 53 runs for the second wicket. Earlier, West Indies had won the toss and elected to bowl. India captain Rohit Sharma confirmed at the toss that pacer Avesh Khan will make his international debut, as the hosts made four changes to their playing XI. Avesh received his debut cap from veteran pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar. (LIVE SCORECARD)
