As West Indies and India square off in the fourth T20I on Saturday, the action moves to Florida. Team India currently leads 2-1 and is backed with a resounding victory in Basseterre. In the previous match, Suryakumar Yadav held the advantage after scoring 76 off just 44 balls. However, West Indies have the pressure to mount a comeback and tie the series.

India will try to win yet another T20I series against the Windies when the two teams lock horns on August 6. The scoring responsibility lies with Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma as the opening duo has been in good touch recently. In 11 T20I matches this year, Yadav has scored 404 runs and recently jumped to the No. 2 spot in ICC’s recent rankings.

Shreyas Iyer has had bad performances in a recent while, and the team might make a little change to the combination. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who is in good shape, will lead the pace attack. Arshdeep Singh’s abilities would be put to the test because of the excellent wicket that is available. Thus, with a very strong lineup, the Men in Blue will now look to seal the deal.

West Indies’ Kyle Mayers has been a promising player in the 20-over format this year. Having smashed a 50-ball 73 in the previous game, the left-hander was West Indies’ leading scorer. One more credible candidate at the top is Brandon King. Skipper Nicholas Pooran needs to rework his strategies and get going in with the bat. Windies players Jason Holder and Obed McCoy have early opportunities to gain ground.

Pitch Conditions

The fixture will be hosted by the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill, Florida. With an average first innings score of 160, it has been a great batting track. Nine out of 12 T20Is have been won by the team batting first and since the surface assists the batters, the captain winning the toss would look to bat first.

Playing Combinations for WI vs IND

West Indies

West Indies will not have their home advantage anymore, and thus they will have to come up with new strategies to tackle India as they are already trailing in the series. They need to win the remaining two matches in order to clinch the series.

India

The Indian team will have just one aim while walking into the game – to win the game at any cost. The Men in Blue would not want to go till the final game of the series as they would like to remove the added pressure as soon as possible and play the final T20I without any burden.

Predicted Playing XI: Rohit Sharma (captain), Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh.
