WI vs IND, 4th T20I Match Preview and Fantasy Prediction
India tour of West Indies
WI vs IND, 4th T20I
After a convincing win in the third T20I, team India will look to carry forward the winning momentum and gain an unassailable 3-1 lead. West Indies on the other hand would try to keep the series alive. The fourth T20I of the five match series will be played on Saturday, August 6 at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida.
West Indies have struggled to maintain consistency in the series thus far. They have played well in patches but have failed to click as a unit. When their batting has flourished, bowlers have been unsuccessful in backing them up and when their batters have been up to the task, their bowlers have let them down. In the last game, batting first West Indies did a decent job in posting a competitive total. Kyle Myres (73) was Windies top scorer. The 29 year old swashbuckler smashed 8 fours and 4 sixes during his 50 ball knock. The visitors in reply easily chased down the target with 5 balls to spare. West Indies pace attack hardly asked questions from the opposition batters. They were poor with their line, length and pace variations. The likes of Obed McCoy, Alzarri Joseph, Jason Holder and Dominic Drakes were just not good enough on the day and eventually paid the price.
Barring the second game, India have mostly dominated the series thus far. High on batting firepower, the visitors pack quite a punch. The likes of Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant have been in sumptuous touch with bat in hand. Shreyas Iyer at three has looked a little unsettled but apart from him the batting unit looks potent. In the bowling prowess Bhuveneshwar Kumar has been their standout bowler. The ace seamer has picked wickets at regular intervals and has shown nerves of steel at crunch times. His ability to move the new ball and vary his pace during the death overs makes him a T20 specialist. Arshdeep Singh is the other pacer who has impressed one and all with his impeccable toe crushers and clever change in pace. He is the other bowler to keep a close eye on.
In the spin bowling department India have R.Ashwin who has had a hot and cold series so far. Ahead of the key clash, let us have a look at how these two sides will fare out in Saturday’s match

The pitch at Florida is good for slow bowlers as the short boundaries may entice the batters to go after them. Last time India played on this ground the spin duo of Washington Sundar and Krunal Pandya enjoyed success on the wicket. Batting second/Chasing has been the more preferred option at this venue.
