Action shifts to Florida
- India aim to seal series
- West Indies bank on batting strength
India need a win to ensure a series victory as the action moves to USA for the final two T20Is of the series. India were convincing when they won the two matches, but in the losing game looked out of sorts. India have odds of 1.45 to win the fourth T20I.
West Indies, meanwhile, need this win to stay alive in the series and on a batting strip in Florida they have the best chance to do so. West Indies have higher odds to win this match: 2.70, and it will still take quite a bit of work from them.
The Lauderhill connection
India will be playing their fourth T20I in Lauderhill, Florida – all of them coming against the West Indies. They won the two matches played in 2019 in Florida while the game in 2016 – a high-scoring thriller – saw India lose by one run. The second game in Florida in 2016 was a washout.
Our pick: India have a strong core across batting and bowling departments. Back India at 1.45 to win this one!
India will aim to put up a tall total if they are batting first. The small dimensions of the ground will encourage West Indies’ big hitters. It will take India’s best bowling effort to stop West Indies on a likely batting wicket.
Keep an eye on…
Rishabh Pant: A mature innings last match has critics impressed about Rishabh Pant. The left-hander needs quite a few more such knocks to ward off heavy competition for his spot in the Indian side.
Shimron Hetmyer: West Indies’ best hitter in these conditions, Hetmyer should bat higher up the order to target India in the middle overs.
TIP: Rohit Sharma can take on the attack on a true wicket. Back Rohit Sharma at 4.35 to be the best match batter for India!
