WI vs IND 5th T20I

WI vs IND 5th T20I: To stay in the Twenty20 International (T20I) series against India, West Indies will be focused on defeating West Indies on Sunday. At Central Broward, Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida, the fifth short-format match between India and the West Indies will take place. The visiting team is off to a good start in the following games despite only winning the first game of the series by three runs. India scored 308 runs in its first innings while losing seven wickets, which is still a respectable total.

India got a good three days off in between the third and fourth T20I. Rohit should have plenty of time to heal as a result. Will Rohit, though, put his health in danger for a pointless bilateral series? Well, coming into the fourth T20I, this would be a significant question.

The fourth and fifth Twenty20 Internationals between India and the West Indies will be played in Lauderhill, Florida, in the United States, therefore the action will now shift there. For the Indian team, the Lauderhill field holds bittersweet recollections. Four games—all T20Is—have been played here. India has won two of these matches, lost one, and had a tie in the other. More than 480 runs were scored in the 2016 match, which was a titanic contest.

 WI vs IND 5th T20I: Overview

Team India mounted a great recovery after their defeat in the second T20I.  Suryakumar Yadav finally had his chance to shine as an opener as he smashed 76 runs off 44 balls while chasing 165, whereas Rohit Sharma was injured and forced to withdraw after only facing 5 balls owing to a back spasm.

Rishabh Pant stayed unbeaten for 33 runs in 26 balls as India crossed the finish line with 7 wickets and one over left, while Shreyas Iyer continued his gloomy record in T20Is with 24 runs off 27 deliveries.

As the biggest wicket-taker for team India in the current series with 4 wickets under his belt after 3 games, Arshdeep Singh has shown consistency in his bowling, especially in the dying overs. While Hardik Pandya has made significant strides with the ball in hand, Ashwin and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have registered themselves among wickets. India’s main worry would be Avesh Khan, who has lost 78 runs in 5.2 overs so far in this series.

Indian batters have had trouble facing left-arm pacers, and West Indies bowler Obed McCoy has skillfully exploited this weakness. McCoy has 7 wickets in the three T20Is, including a 5-fer. To tie the series, Jason Holder, Akeel Hosein, and Alzarri Joseph will also take on the Indian batting. McCoy will also be batting.

WI vs IND 5th T20I: Key Players

Shimron Hetmyer (West Indies): Shimron Hetmyer has had a disappointing series thus far, scoring 20, 6, and 14 in his three matches, with him also having battled quite a bit against spin.

Hetmyer, one of West Indies’ important players leading up to the T20 World Cup 2022, would want to play at his peak, and there is no better opportunity to do so than when a series is on the line against a top-tier T20I team.

Hardik Pandya (India): The all-rounder now offers assurance on either front more than ever before, making him one of the most improved white-ball cricket players in recent memory.

Hardik produced a Player of the Match performance in the first of three T20Is against England last month, with 51 (33) and 4/33, and has continued that trend in the current series after leading the team to a 2-0 series victory in Ireland. While dismissing Kyle Mayers and Brandon King, he has only given up 53 runs in his first 10 overs of bowling. In a setting where high scores are likely, he might have a big part to play with the bat.

WI vs IND 5th T20I: Pitch Report

It is anticipated that the Florida wicket at Lauderhill would lead to a high-scoring encounter with good bat-ball contact. After winning the toss, the captain may choose to bowl first rather than try to chase down the total. Bowlers will need to adjust their line and length in order to secure some wickets for their team.

WI vs IND 5th T20I: Match winner prediction

India is the competition’s clear favorite based on recent performance, both individually and collectively. There have been only two victories in the 15 head-to-head games between the two teams since 2018—the West Indies’ five-wicket triumph in the second T20I of the current series.

In Lauderhill, Florida, India has won two of their three completed games; the lone loss was by a slim margin of one run six years earlier during a failed run-chase of 246. On Saturday, expect the visitors to win the series, giving them another chance to test out their reserve strength. The caliber of the West Indies team, though, cannot be disregarded, as it only takes one moment of individual brilliance to tie the series and set up a thrilling decider.
