West Indies will take on Afghanistan in the 3rd ODI of the three-match series at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.
The West Indies, though, still managed to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. Their first series win since August 2014. That was 21 series ago. Afghanistan, on the other hand, suffered their 11th ODI loss in a row.
Put into bat, West Indies posted 247 for nine in their stipulated 50 overs, riding on a 50-ball 67 by Nicholas Pooran and a 75-ball 54 from opener Evin Lewis.
Heading into this ODI, Afghanistan will be eyeing a consolation win after having lost first two matches at the hands of visitors. Afghanistan will be their batting unit to put in an improved performance in the 3rd match.
Afghanistan is hosting the West Indies in this northern Indian city for three ODIs, three T20s and a one-off test.
