Riding high after clinching the ODI series, the Indian team will look to repeat their performance against West Indies in the one-off Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) at Sabina Park today.
Lewis upstaged hometown hero Chris Gayle by compiling 125 not out off 62 deliveries, a run rate of more than two per ball as he scored the third-highest total in a T20 global. I call heads five times and lost; today I call tails and still lost. When we end up thinking too much, we end up compromising too much in a T20 game.
When will the India vs West Indies 2017, T20, India vs West Indies cricket game be played?
West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite revealed he had offered his batsmen a sweetener.
India too looks a strong side on paper and will be high on confidence after their ODI series win.
The two teams had last played against each in T20 was in World Cup semifinals where West Indies got the better half of the blue brigade. Brathwaite, all-rounder Kieron Pollard, and Marlon Samuels are the other significant additions for the side in the striking section, which will appear to go firm at the Indian bowlers.
West Indies are reigning world champions with the likes of Gayle, Marlon Samuels, Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree still a part of the current squad led by their World T20 hero Carlos Brathwaite. However, the bowling section below the likes of qualified pacer Jerome Taylor and turning pair Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine will look to put the constraints on the hard Indian striking array. In our side, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh batsman practice well and give a good start to our team.
