Match Preview – West Indies vs India, India 2022 in West Indies, 4th T20I


It has been 12 years since cricket was officially and formally formed in the United States, with the weekend of two T20Is between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. For various reasons, however, Florida has not yet emerged as the cricketing destination that administrators might have expected. There will be two matches between West Indies and India this weekend. only 12 matches There was played among full members.
However, if both teams can have the kind of entertainment they had six years ago – when 245 batting first scored 244 – it would go towards establishing Florida as a cricket outpost. These are both ideal teams for attracting crowds with large numbers of immigrants from their parts of the world in the Sunshine State of America.
For both the teams, this match could be their final form before deciding on their team name for the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia. So it would be a good test for Arshdeep Singh and R Ashwin to stake their claim for the back-up spot on the smaller ground.

West Indies know their best combination less well. The wizards of T20 cricket have to play qualifiers in the World Cup. Who knows whether Andre Russell will be fit or Sunil Narine will be picked. For various reasons, Sheldon Cottrell, Fabian Allen and Evin Lewis are also out of the game against India. With the series on the line, this is a good opportunity for fringe players to enter the team.

Deepak Hooda He hasn’t done a leg wrong this year but he still can’t make it to India’s first-choice XI when everyone is available. However, he still has time to cement his place in the team, and a batsman in the XI should struggle in a World Cup.
Nicholas PooranThe most established T20 batsman in the West Indies line-up, he struggled to score at run-a-ball in the third T20I against the offspin cutters of Hardik Pandya and Ashwin. If there is any grip in the pitch, he will have to deal with it more and he will have to find a way out.
Rohit Sharma’s fitness will get a lot of attention after he retired hurt with a back cramp in the third T20I. He has lost more matches than he has played since taking over as full-time captaincy and India would not want to risk a serious injury so close to the World Cup. He will play only when he has full confidence in his fitness. On the bowling front, India can go full force picking Harshal Patel over Avesh Khan, who doesn’t have the best of the series.

India 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Suryakumar Yadav, 3 Shreyas Iyer, 4 Rishabh Pant (wk), 5 Hardik Pandya, 6 Dinesh Karthik, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Harshal Patel, 9 R Ashwin, 10 Yuzvendra Chahal, 11 Arshdeep Singh

Instead of a batting all-rounder in Odeon Smith, a bowling all-rounder in Dominic Drakes is the composition that West Indies are likely to stick with. However, they could have brought in Smith for wicketkeeper Devon Thomas, with Pooran wearing big gloves.

West Indies 1 Kyle Meyers, 2 Brandon King, 3 Nicholas Pooran (c), 4 Shimron Hetmyer, 5 Rovman Powell, 6 Devon Thomas (wk), 7 Jason Holder, 8 Akil Hossein, 9 Dominic Drake, 10 Alzarri Joseph, 11 Obed McCoy

The pitch may be unknown in places that are not used to hosting regular international cricket, but the boundaries are small and there should be good value for shots. There is no major threat for matches other than an odd passing shower.

  • Skip the series in Sri Lanka when India’s third-string side was further weakened by a Covid-19 outbreak, and the last time India lost a bilateral T20I series was back in early 2019 against Australia was.
