India tour of West Indies
WI vs IND, 5th T20I
West Indies and India will face each other in the 5th and final T20I match of the series at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida on Sunday, August 5. Both teams will strive to end this riveting series on a high. While India will rely on their batters to deliver the goods, West Indies will be hoping their bowlers can replicate the heroics of the second T20I.
Despite the hosts trailing in the series, there is an air of positivity attached to their T20 side. The two openers - Brandon King and Kyle Mayers - have found some form, notching up a fifty each. Obed McCoy's variations peppered with his hit-the-deck skills and left-arm angle have troubled the Indian batters. Meanwhile, Akeal Hosein has given them the required control and wicket-taking option. Pooran and co have shown promise but have failed to click as a unit.
India possess a well rounded squad with a potent batting unit and a decent bowling prowess. Rohit Sharma has led his team well and the dressing room looks in very good mental space. Batting department has done exceptionally well with the likes of Suryakumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant chipping in with crucial contributions. The bowling prowess will be led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Ahead of the key clash, let us have a look at how these two sides will fare out in Sunday’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.
