Team India and West Indies will lock horns in the fourth game of the ongoing five-match T20I series at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Florida on Saturday, August 12. Trailing 1-2 in the ongoing series, Hardik Pandya and Co. are expected to stage an exceptional performance in the upcoming game.

Meanwhile, legendary India batter Wasim Jaffer spoke about India's batting line-up, which failed to perform well in the ongoing series.  

"We have spoken about how important it is for the openers to get off to a good start in the powerplay and give players like Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma a good platform. But they won't be worried about it as they will know they need to show intent straightaway," Jaffer told ESPNcricinfo.

He went on to say that Yashasvi Jaiswal bats aggressively while Shubman Gill is a bit defensive batter. He claimed that these two youngsters could make some difference in the upcoming match.

"Jaiswal will bat with aggressive intent, and I feel Shubman Gill is being a bit too defensive. If he gets 2-3 good shots straightaway then that could make a huge difference," he added.

There needs to be a bit of homework done: Jaffer

Wasim Jaffer further stated that team India have to prepare well heading into the fourth game. Notably, India dropped star opener Ishan Kishan in the third T20I to give Yashasvi Jaiswal his T20I debut.  

"There needs to be a bit of homework done. This is a high-scoring ground and execution needs to be spot-on. It seems like Arshdeep is trying too many things but he is not being able to execute it. So even if he can stop 2-3 boundaries at crucial stages, it could prove to make a massive difference in the game. So he will need to execute well," the 45-year-old added.
