Team India will begin their five-match T20I series against West Indies at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad with the first T20I on Thursday. India defeated West Indies 2-1 in the three-match ODI series which ended at the same venue on Tuesday.
Two-time T20 World Cup champions West Indies are the co-hosts of the 2024 T20 World Cup next year and will be looking to build their dominance in the build-up to the tournament after failing to qualify for the ODI World Cup 2023 in India later this year. India, on the other hand, have been dominant in the head-to-head T20I clashes between the two sides – having won 17 out of the 25 encounters so far.
Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya will be leading the Indian team after taking over the reigns from Rohit Sharma in the second ODI match. Rajasthan Royals opener Yashasvi Jaiswal is set to make his T20I debut in this game after a sensational Test debut in Dominica last month.
For West Indies, Lucknow Super Giants batter Nicholas Pooran, who was the highest run-scorer in Major League Cricket (MLC) will be available for the T20I series and will be a big boost to their line-up. Apart from Pooran, ODI skipper Shai Hope and Rajasthan Royals pacer Oshane Thomas will be making a comeback in the West Indies T20I lineup as well.
For India, the likes of Yuzvendra Chahal and Arshdeep Singh could be seen in India colours once again. It will be interesting to see if Indian team management will play Sanju Samson over ‘Player of the Series’ in ODIs Ishan Kishan in this contest.
