After beating West Indies in the second ODI and gaining a lead of 1-0 in the three-match ODI series, India will take on West Indies in the final ODI today. The first ODI was abandoned due to rain. Rishabh Pant, who failed with the bat at no.4 position in the second game wants to win games for India by playing a positive brand of cricket.

"Obviously as an individual, I would like to have a big score behind my back. Every time I go in, I am not focussing on that. I just want to play positive cricket and I want to win matches for the team. Every match is crucial for me, I want to keep on improving as a cricketer," Pant told reporters on the eve of third ODI.

Pant also asserted that every member of the team is calm and is just focussing on winning the final ODI of the series.

"Everyone is calm right now. We are just focussing on the match. We need to win the final ODI, and finish the series on a high," Pant said.

"There was a situation in the previous ODI when West Indies had an upper hand. We knew if we kept it tight, we will come out as triumphant," Pant added.
