After performing a clean sweep on Bangladesh in the recently concluded Test Series, the men in blue are back in action as India vs West Indies T20 Series 2019 will be underway from tomorrow. This time, however, the team would be entirely different with T20 specialists taking over. Virat Kohli will resume his responsibilities as the T20 skipper for this series.
West Indies, on the other hand, had lost in all formats against India back in August this year. With Kieron Pollard being handed over the responsibility as the skipper, the Windies would be expecting change of fortunes for this series. Let's dive into some more details.
India Expected Playing XI Against West Indies
With Kohli (C) and Rohit Sharma being the main pillars of batting, youngsters like Rishabh Pant (WK) and KL Rahul would have a lot to prove. Shreyas Iyer has been in decent touch of late and thus retains his middle-order position with Ravindra Jadeja and Shivam Dubey playing the role of a bowling all-rounder. Chief bowlers include Kuldeep Yadav, Chahal, Bhuvneshwar and Deepak Chahar.
West Indies Playing XI
West Indies are a struggling side with rare wins here and there.With Pollard at the helm of captaincy, India has a fierce competitor to reckon with. The team comprises Nicholas Pooran, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Lendl Simmons who can destroy any bowling lineup on their day.
The bowling unit is expected to feature all-rounder Jason Holder, Keemo Paul and Fabian Allen.
Any fool or non-cricket fan can predict India to win against West Indies without any doubt. But T20 is one such format where any team can beat any team on a given day.
