WI vs IND, 4th T20

 

Preview

After two matches in the first two T20Is, The number one side in the world in T20Is fought back to register their first win at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on Wednesday. The number one batter in the world Suryakumar Yadav's unwavering determination thwarted the Host's chances of sealing the five-match T20I series before the action relocated to the USA. The series is now poised with WI leading 2-1 with 2 matches remaining to play for. The 4th T20I of the five-match T20 series will be played at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill Florida on 12th August from 8:00 PM between WI and IND.

In an unexpected move, IND's skipper Hardik Pandya utilized four overs of spin during the PowerPlay, disrupting the rhythm of the Caribbean top order batters. Both the WI's openers Brandon King and Kyle Mayers laid a strong foundation with a partnership of 55 runs, and King assumed the role of an anchor, guiding the innings forward and scored 42 off 42 balls. On the other hand, Mayers scored 25 off 20 balls with the help of 3 fours and 1 six.

The left-handed batter Nicholas Pooran who is in red hot form for WI  fell short of a significant score in the 3rd T20I. He scored 20 off 12 balls, smashing 2 fours and 1 six in his quick cameo. Pooran's contribution during the middle overs injected momentum into theWI's innings. The Visitors managed to stage a comeback through the left arm china man Kuldeep Yadav, who claimed three wickets for 28 runs, yet struggled to contain the WI captain. Rovman Powell's impactful cameo towards the conclusion could prove pivotal, as the WI's skipper's rapid 40 runs off 19 balls, pummeling 1 four and 3 sixes in his innings. He elevated the total to the significant 160-mark.

In return, the left-handed wunderkind batter Yashaswi Jaiswal(01) endured a disappointing debut, squandering his wicket in the first over. Soon after him, Gill also lost his wicket on the score of 06 off 11 balls. However, this setback ushered in SKY to the crease, and the 33-year-old right-handed batter's initial two deliveries resulted in a boundary and a six. This swift start established a dynamic tone, with Suryakumar requiring a supportive partner at the opposite end. He smoked 83 off 44 balls with the help of 10 fours and 4 sixes and felt shy of his 4th T20I ton.

The left-handed batter Tilak Varma seamlessly filled that role, forming a harmonious combination of assertiveness and composure. While SKY continued to dispatch boundaries, the 20-year-old Varma adeptly manoeuvred the strike to maintain the rhythm of the partnership.

The Mumbai-Franchise batter fell just one run shy of achieving a second consecutive T20I half-century, while the skipper sealed the victory for IND with a six down the track off Powell's bowling in the 18th over. This was the Visitors' 10th win in the last 13 T20Is against West Indies. The final two matches are scheduled to take place in the United States over the upcoming weekend.

Match Prediction

A convincing win in the third T20I has brought India on the front foot. India’s record in the USA is what makes them a choice to take the fourth game. In 5 T20Is, India has registered three wins. The one game they lost was by just 1 run. Besides this, if Suryakumar Yadav is in flow, there will be hardly any side that can think of winning.

IND has 6 wins and a tie in the last 12 T20Is they played. The Hosts are running through a decent form in this format with just 6 wins in the last 12 matches. The left-handed batter Nicholas Pooran’s form will be the key for them to stop India from winning yet another series. But we say IND to win this match and make a solid statement against the Hosts.
