Our Prediction: Kuldeep Yadav to be India’s highest wicket-taker at 2/1 (3.00).
Man of the Match
The left arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav has snared six wickets from three games in the ongoing series. He has 52 wickets in T20I cricket at an economy of 6.70. Bet on him to be the player of the match.
Our Prediction: Kuldeep Yadav to be the Man of the Match at 10/1 (11.00) odds.
West Indies vs India Preview
India have bounced back with back to back victories to force a series decider. Take a look at two sides before they meet in the fifth T20I on Sunday.
The men in maroon have let the opportunity to seal the series slip away after being 2-0 up in the series. They posted 178 in the fourth game on the back of Shimron Hetmyer’s 61 off 39 and Shai Hope’s 45. But the bowling attack was obliterated as they lost by nine wickets.
As for the playing XI, expect at least one change with Alzarri Joseph coming in for Odean Smith. Shai Hope replaced Johnson Charles in the last game and he did well.
Squad: Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Shai Hope (wk), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell (c), Romario Shepherd, Akeal Hosein, Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph, Obed McCoy
The Indian side smashed West Indies by nine wickets at this same venue on Saturday. Kuldeep Yadav picked 2 for 26 while Arshdeep Singh bagged 3 for 38. Chasing 179, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill put on a 165-run stand. Gill struck 77 off 47 while Jaiswal remained unbeaten on a magnificent 84 off 51.
The visitors are unlikely to make any changes with the series on the line.
Squad: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya (c), Sanju Samson (wk), Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Mukesh Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal
