India has a great chance to win the series in this match and test some of their fringe players in the final T20I match. West Indies, on the other hand, need to win this match to keep the series alive and take it to the decider.

In the 3rd T20I, the West Indies started well with Kyle Mayers scoring 73 runs off 50 balls and forming a 50 run partnership with Brandon King (20 runs) and Nicholas Pooran (22 runs) for the first 2 wickets. Shimron Hetmyer (20 runs) and Rovman Powell (23 runs) scored some rapid fire, taking their team to a good score of 164/5 in the 20 overs.

Obed McCoy and Alzarri Joseph were dragged for many points in the final game. Akeal Hosein was their most consistent player in this series, picking 3 wickets at a bargain rate of 5.33 RPO. Dominic Drakes and Jason Holder will try to make their mark on the ball in this match.

India’s chase got underway with Suryakumar Yadav’s blinder of 76 runs on 44 runs with 8 limits and 4 sixes in the match. Shreyas Iyer (24 runs) and Rishabh Pant (33* runs) played vital cameos in the match to win comfortably. Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja (who was equipped for the 3rd T20I) also have good contact and India could experiment with their percussion in this match too.

Pacers Arshdeep Singh and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were excellent with the ball, claiming 7 wickets between them at a bargain rate of 7 RPO. Ravichandran Ashwin and Hardik Pandya joined in the middle overs to effectively strangle the batters. Avesh Khan was a bit headstrong and leaked a lot of runs and Harshal Patel could replace him in the match.

Much to the relief of cricket fans, it has been learned that Rohit Sharma will be available for the last two games on Saturday and Sunday in Florida. The Indian skipper was injured on Tuesday during the 3rd T20 in St. Kitts. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said the skipper was suffering from back cramps. But with two games to go, Rahul Dravid is likely to try Kuldeep Yadav and Harshal Patel.

India has made only two changes in the three games so far, with Ravi Bishnoi falling to the bench due to tactical adjustments. Deepak Hooda also returned to the XI in place of Ravindra Jadeja to manage his injury. But Avesh Khan, who has had a disappointing run in the series, will be dropped alongside Shreyas Iyer.

India Likely XI: Rohit Sharma (C), Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Rishabh Pant (WK), Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh

West Indies Probable XI: Kyle Mayers, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (C), Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell, Devon Thomas (WK), Jason Holder, Dominic Drakes, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph & Obed McCoy

India has a strong cast and their aggressive approach has been a huge hit in the recent series. Their bowling unit has done well and will try to continue their good work in this match as well. The West Indies batting relies too heavily on their openers and they struggle to keep score percentage in the middle overs.

India is expected to win this competition due to its recent form and momentum. The visitors are likely to win the match and take an unassailable lead of 3-1 in the run of 5 games.
