West Indies blitzed through at the start of the series with two wins, albeit in closely-fought games. India kept the series alive with two sprightly wins and look favourites to close out the series. It looks set for another high-scoring match and we are backing the Windies to lead the sixes chart. I am putting my money on the Windies scoring the most 6s.

  • West Indies have hit the most 6s of the match in 3 of the 4 matches played in this series (T20Is)
  • West Indies have hit the most 6s in 6 of their last 7 games (T20Is)
  • West Indies have lost their last 7 matches at this venue (T20Is)
  • India have won their last 5 matches against the Windies at this venue (T20Is)

Head to Head


West Indies have played 29 T20Is against India with only nine wins for the men in maroon. On the other hand, India have won 19 with one ending in no result.

The record at this venue is bleaker for the Windies with five wins for India and a solitary win for the Windies while one match had no result.

West Indies Form


West Indies won the first two matches of the series by four runs and two wickets. They were able to hold their nerves in those games but were soon sent crashing with twin losses.

The seven-wicket and nine-wicket losses in the last two matches were a reflection of their poor top-order batting. Nicholas Pooran (129 runs) and Rovman Powell (110) remain their best batting bets.

Bowling was lacklustre too with only Akeal Hosein keeping the run rate to under seven runs an over. Romario Shepherd is their best wicket-taking bowler (five) but has also been their most expensive (10.15 runs per over).

West Indies Team News


Odean Smith played in place of Roston Chase in the fourth T20I, but the off-spinner may come back.

India Form


India were slow off the blocks, with their batters struggling on slow pitches. As the series went on though, they found their feet and were able to chalk out consecutive wins.

Tilak Varma (146) remains India’s best batter of the series playing in his debut series. The best news coming from Saturday though, is the return to form of Shubman Gill (77).

Kuldeep Yadav (six wickets) is India’s best bowler of the series with an economy rate of 6.16 runs per over. There have been wickets for Arshdeep Singh (six) too, but he is their most expensive bowler.

India Team News


India fielded an unchanged team in the fourth game and could do the same in this series decider.

Verdict

The high-scoring venue of Lauderhill is likely to entertain the fans once again as scores of 170 and above are set to be the order of the day. Regardless of their situation in the series, West Indies fancy themselves on the big hits and I am going with them. I am picking the Windies to score the most 6s of the match. Keep a small wager to back Nicholas Pooran to score a fifty.
