We are ready for play! The two umpires make their way out to the field and so do the West Indies openers, Brandon King and Kyle Mayers. The Indian players spread out on the field and it will be the part-time off-spinner Deepak Hooda to start proceedings with the new ball. The Windies players take the knee to show their support for the BLM movement before the first ball is delivered. Let's play...
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is down for a quick chat. He says he is feeling good and has bowled mostly in the Powerplay but there's not much help from the pitch. Adds that Arshdeep Singh has been phenomenal and Avesh Khan is also learning and he tries to share his experiences with those guys. Says that there are a lot of senior players in the side and they all talk to the young players.
West Indies (Playing XI) - Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran (C), Shimron Hetmyer, Devon Thomas (WK), Rovman Powell, Jason Holder, Dominic Drakes (In for Odean Smith), Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Obed McCoy.
India (Playing XI) - Rohit Sharma (C), Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (WK), Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda (In for Ravindra Jadeja), Dinesh Karthik, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh.
Nicholas Pooran, the skipper of West Indies says they are happy to bat first. The wicket got slow in the second innings of the previous game and they want to put a respectable score. Adds that they tick the box as a bowling group. They stick to the plans and luckily things went their way. Shares that both the left-armers, Obed McCoy and Akeal Hosein bowled really well and informs that, they too think about left-arm players and that is why they bring in Dominic Drakes in place of Odean Smith. Mentions they are backing the players and says it's important to have the right players in the right positions.
Rohit Sharma, the captain of India says that they will field first and it is not because of the conditions, it's just that they like to chase. Adds that there's always a talk about the importance of the Powerplay and the ground is small but the average score here isn't big which is to be kept in mind. Mentions that when guys try and express themselves out there, there can be big scores or like what happened last time as well. Says that as a team they want to improve in all aspects of the game and yes, the left-armers have done good against them but it isn't particularly a weakness of their batting order. Ends by informing that they have given Jadeja a rest and Deepak Hooda comes in to replace him.
TOSS - India have won the toss and they will BOWL first!
West Indies have historically been a dominant force in the T20 format but over the last few years, they seemed to have lost their edge a bit. But a victory against formidable opponents in the last game will give them a major boost. Obed McCoy has been a revelation and the big left-armer took 6 wickets in the last game, a very rare feat in white-ball cricket. The hosts do need to perform well as a batting unit but a solid knock up top from Brandon King and a cameo in the middle-order from Devon Thomas was enough to seal the victory. Which side will sneak ahead in the series? We'll find out soon. Toss and team sheets in a bit.
