Players To Watch Out For

  • Suryakumar Yadav

Suryakumar Yadav has been on and off when we talk about the form. In the third T20 match, the right-hander did make runs with the willow. A swashbuckling 83 meant that he could dominate once again.

The pitch in Florida has been supporting the batters and if India bats first, Yadav will have the responsibility to score some quick runs with the bat and set a target.

  • Nicholas Pooran

The left-handed batter from West Indies comes in with great form behind his back. He scored a title-winning century in the final of MLC. More than that he played brilliant knocks in the first and second T20.

The last two games have been dull for Pooran. If he can negate the threat of Kuldeep Yadav, things can be brilliant for the left-handed batter.

  • Kuldeep Yadav

Mystery spin against West Indies is the way to go. Inform batters of West Indies have struggled to score runs against the spin of Kuldeep. He has got wood over the Windies.

Winner Prediction

It is very tough to predict the winner for India vs West Indies 5th T20 international. Both of the teams look stronger on paper and can dominate easily.

But with the West Indies bowling looking thin and the pitch good for batting, it seems like India will just edge out West Indies and win the T20 series.

As a result of his wickets and the impact, Kuldeep Yadav has been selected as the man of the series. He picked up wickets in all the matches he played.

He was dropped from the 2nd T20 international, still, he came back and picked up six wickets until the 4th T20 international. He will have a bigger impact even in the 5th match.
