West Indies gave a tough challenge to India in the first two ODI matches but were below average in the final game of the series. That loss means that they lost the series 3-0. They now face the same opposition in the shorter version of the game and have a chance to redeem themselves. West Indies have been good in T20s in recent times and will be looking to dominate the opponent in the five games series. They are going as underdogs in the series but can pull out a massive upset if they play their cards right.
West Indies Predicted Lineup
Rovman Powell, Kyle Mayers, Shai Hope (wk), Shamarh Brooks, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (captain), Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Gudakesh Motie, Romario Shepherd, Jayden Seales
India has yet another series in its bag and they were brilliant in the series. They kept their nerves when the need arises and came up with a 3-0 victory even if the two games went down to the wire. It will be a huge confidence boost for the men in blue. India will be welcoming the T20 specialists like Harshal Patel and Dinesh Kartik. With the absence of Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah, the youngsters have the opportunity to impress the selectors for the upcoming world cup. India will be looking to continue their dominating performance in this series as well.
India Predicted Lineup
Rohit Sharma (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Avesh Khan/Arshdeep Singh
