Riding high after clinching the One-Day International (ODI) series, the Indian team will look to repeat their performance against West Indies in the one-off Twenty20 International (T20I) at Sabina Park here on Sunday.

The visitors have retained the same squad which won them the ODI series 3-1 while the Carlos Brathwaite-led West Indies have made significant changes for the match.

It will be a slightly more difficult task for the men-in-blue to outplay the hosts like they did in the ODI series because the West Indies T20 team seems to be a more balanced side as compared to the ODI squad.

West Indies will rely heavily on their swashbuckling batsman Chris Gayle who has joined the T20 squad to provide them with a good start against a decent Indian bowling line-up.  Virat Kohli Goes Past Sachin Tendulkar Record Of Most Centuries In Chases 

Brathwaite, all-rounder Kieron Pollard and Marlon Samuels are the other important inclusions for the side in the batting department, who will look to go hard at the Indian bowlers.

The bowling department under the likes of experienced pacer Jerome Taylor and spinning duo Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine will look to put the brakes on the formidable Indian batting line-up.

On the other hand, the Indian batting line with the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh will look to help their side put up a big total keeping in mind the visitor’s strength in batting.

Kohli may also make some changes in the playing XI with the kind of depth India has got in their squad.

India’s bowling department will be duly tested with the hard-hitting West Indian batsmen on the show for West Indies in the shorter format.  Sakshi Dhoni Wishes Husband MS Dhoni A Happy Birthday
