Shubman Gill's quest for his first ODI century increased when, in the third and final ODI between India and the West Indies on Wednesday at Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain, the batsman was left stranded on 98. The Indian innings, which they chose to bat first, was ended by the umpires at 225/3 in 36 overs during the rain-affected match. According to the DLS method, West Indies were required to chase 257 in 35 overs but were ultimately dismissed for 137 runs in 26 overs.

The run chase for the hosts got off to a rocky start when Mohammed Siraj struck twice in his first over. Before Kyle Mayers and Shamarh Brooks could access their accounts, the pacer packed them. Shai Hope and Brandon King scored 47 runs for the third wicket after they were dismissed, but Hope bowled out stumped by Yuzi Chahal on 22. (33).

Shikhar Dhawan and Gill scored 113 runs for the first wicket earlier in the day before Hayden Walsh ended their partnership by removing Dhawan on 58. (74). Soon after Dhawan was out, there was a rain delay, which led to the game being shortened to 40 overs per team.
