Preview: The third and final ODI will be played at the Kensington Oval, Barbados. Both teams will fancy their chances to win the series and end things on a positive note. Australia will look to bounce back after facing a humiliating defeat while West Indies will look to repeat their performance from the second ODI.
Analysis: With both teams having won a match each, the series stands evenly poised and is up for grabs in the final ODI. Australia dominated the first game while the West Indies registered a thumping win in the second match. Mitchell Starc has regained his form and that's really good news for the Aussies. Alex Carey showed some temperament in the first game, but failed miserably in the second, however, he is still the highest run getter in the series.
For the West Indies, Nicholas Pooran back in form is the best positive. He scored a half-century and finished the game for his team. Jason Holder also looked in good touch and can prove crucial with his all-round abilities in the final ODI. Windies captain Kieron Pollard had scored a half-century in the first ODI when every batter had failed. He will look to steer his team over the line and seal the series in the finale.
