Team India led by Rohit Sharma will aim to gain an unassailable lead in the five-game streak when they face the West Indies in Florida on Saturday in the fourth T20I. The visitors are currently leading 2-1 after winning the third game by seven wickets. Suryakumar Yadav was the star of the show as he played a knockout 76. Rohit Sharma stopped in pain midway through due to back cramps while Shreyas Iyer’s form is a major concern in the shortest format. So it would be interesting to see if the visitors make any changes to their playing XI for the fourth T20I.
Here’s what we believe should be India’s predicted XI for the fourth T20I
Rohit Sharma: The skipper played a 64-point knockout in the first game and backed it up with a duck in the second. Five balls into his innings in the 3rd T20I, he had to stop injured so it would be interesting to see his match fitness.
Suryakumar Yadav: The right-handed batter was at his best in the third T20I when he played a 76-run knockout, and he would hope his good form continues.
Sanju Samson: Shreyas Iyer hasn’t been able to capture the #3 spot in the ongoing series, and he hasn’t been able to post big scores with a good strike rate. Therefore, the team management can try to bring in Samson for the last two T20Is
Rishabh Pant: The wicketkeeper batter had some decent contact in the third T20I as he scored 33 runs off 26 balls. He hoped the runs would keep coming.
Hardik Pandya: The all-rounder hasn’t had the best deal with the bat this series, but he’s made up for it with the ball in hand. He has had the best year of his career and he would try to keep contributing.
Deepak Hooda: The all-rounder had made his way into the playing XI for the third T20I. He bowled with the new ball and with the bat he remained undefeated at 10.
Dinesh Karthik: The batter showed his class in the first game of the series when he scored a rapid fire of 41 from 19 balls. The veteran has almost conquered the finish line and he would continue to perform for the team.
Ravichandran Ashwin: The off-spinner managed to keep it tight in the mid-stage of the game and also contributed with important runs for the team. He would try to make the most of the remaining matches to present a case for selection in the T20 World Cup squad.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: The navigator has extensive experience behind him and he would like to guide the youngsters like Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan.
Avesh Khan: The pacer has not been in good shape this series, conceding runs at a fast pace. He would hope to keep it tight and combine that with important wickets.
Arshdeep Singh: The youngster nailed his part to death by bowling perfect yorkers. He has managed to keep it tight and would now try to take more wickets.
