Stump mic catches Sanju Samson's hilarious advice for Axar Patel during the 3rd ODI against West Indies
 

Shikhar Dhawan-led Indian team competed with Nicholas Pooran's West Indies in the 3rd One-day match on 27th July, Wednesday. Talking about the game, Shikhar Dhawan won the toss and opted to bat.

India posted a competitive total of 225 runs before the rain gets interrupted during the game. Shubman Gill remained unbeaten on 98 runs as he missed his well-deserved hundred. Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer added 58 and 44 runs respectively.

Chasing the target of 256 runs, the visitors bowled out West Indies for just 137 runs. Brandon King and Nicholas Pooran scored 42 runs each as they lost the match by a margin of 119 runs.

In the end, India won the game and whitewashed the opposition by 3-0 and now, they will be looking to replicate the same in the 5-match T20I with Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant back into the game.

I think we tried up our best: Nicholas Pooran

Losing the final One-day match against India, Nicholas Pooran shared a lot in the post-match presentation about the game. "It was a tough one for us. We did a lot of right things in the first two games.

I think we tried up our best, the boys performed well. But there were a lot of games in a short span of time. As a batting group, it was going to be a challenge with DLS coming into play.

We did get some partnerships, but not as many as we wanted, that cost us the game. There are a few inexperienced players, still figuring out how to play ODI cricket," said Nicholas Pooran as quoted by Cricbuzz.

"Everyone has a good idea now, looking forward to the upcoming New Zealand series. We gained a lot in this series after coming from Guyana. The bowlers bowled well in the powerplay, they didn't get wickets, but that's fine.

The guys are getting more confident with every game. Very excited with our T20 team, looking forward to the game on Friday. Hope that we come out and entertain the crowd," he added.

However, during the game, the stump mic caught Sanju Samson's hilarious advice to Axar Patel to keep his line towards the stumps by saying, "Chal Bapu abhi gilli pe wapas aa jaa (Come on Axar, now get back to bowling at the stumps)."
