'We want the guys who will be part of the World Cup to play as much as possible,' said India's skipper Virat Kohli.

West Indies set 283-run target for team India in the third one-day of a five-match series on Saturday. 

Batsman Shai Hope top-scored with 95 as West Indies reached 283 for nine in the third one-day international against India in Pune on Saturday.

Hope hit 6 fours and 3 sixes in his 113-ball knock to give West Indies a fighting total. Number-nine batsman Ashley Nurse also smashed a crucial 40 off 22 balls.

Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah claimed four wickets to return impressive figures of 4-35.

After Jason Holder departure as the sixth wicket, West Indies were in a vulnerable position.

India have included pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar while Mohammed Shami has been dropped.

After winning the toss, skipper Kohli said, "We want the guys who will be part of the World Cup to play as much as possible."
