Star-studded Windies seek T20I success against India


Windies: Carlos Brathwaite(c), Samuel Badree, Ronsford Beaton, Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor, Chadwick Walton (w), Kesrick Williams

India: Virat Kohli (c), R Ashwin, Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni (w), Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Ajinkya Rahane, Umesh Yadav, Yuvraj Singh

When: Windies vs India, Only T20I, July 09 at 10:30 AM local time (9:00 PM IST)

Where: Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica

What to expect: The pitch for the fifth ODI at Jamaica was a belter for the batsmen, and should it stay true to that and given the batting fire power in both ranks, the match should be a high scorer. The weather is expected to be cloudy and rain could play a part.

Team News:

Windies: The T20 bigwigs should be shoo-ins in the starting XI. Gayle will slot in at the top of the order, while Badree and Narine will make up the spin attack. Kesrick Williams, following his good show in the ODIs, should get another game. Pollard and Marlon Samuels would beef up the middle order and add the required experience and fire-power.

India: While he wasn’t handed an ODI debut in the preceding games, Rishabh Pant is expected to feature in the T20I XI. This will be his second appearance in India colours, having made his debut in the format in the T20I against England in Bengaluru.
