Powell will lead the West Indies side in T20Is. Powell has scored 972 runs in 58 T20Is. He has a good record at home pitches. Although he has not been able to score big in front of Indian bowlers, this will be a good test for him at home pitches.
Shimron Hetmyer is having a power-hitting year so far. His performance in IPL was quite attention seeking with those huge sixes. He has scored 797 in 50 T20Is at a strike rate of 118.42.
Nicholas Pooran smashed a match-winning century in the MLC 2023 final match and he looked in brilliant touch throughout the tournament. He will carry on the form in this series as well and is expected to score big at home. Pooran has smashed 1486 runs in 75 T20Is at an average of 25.19.
Akeal Hosein is a key spinner for the West Indies. He has performed well in various leagues this year and will be a key bowler in the T20 format here. Hosein has picked 26 wickets in 34 T20Is so far at an economy of 7.34.
Indian batters had a hard time facing McCoy earlier. He has produced his best bowling in the T20I format against India. He will be key pacer for the team in this series. Obed McCoy has picked 38 wickets in 27 T20 international matches.
Ishan Kishan (wk), Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Varma, Surya Kumar Yadav (VC), Sanju Samson (wk), Hardik Pandya (C), Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar.
Shubman Gill has had a remarkable year, impressing everyone with his abilities in all the formats. In the IPL 2023, Shubman was awarded the Orange Cap for being the highest run scorer of the season. He will be a key batter at the top order for the Indian T20I side. Gill has played 6 T20Is so far in which he has scored 202 runs at a strike rate of 165.57.
Suryakumar Yadav is currently the No.1 batsman in the ICC rankings for T20Is. He is certainly a one of a kind batter and has the capability to play the match-winning knocks. Suryakumar has smashed 1675 runs in 48 T20Is at an average of 46.53.
Kuldeep Yadav has levelled up his skills recently and we could see few changes in his run-up and delivery. He will be a crucial spinner for the 5-match T20I series. Kuldeep has picked 46 wickets in 28 T20Is out of which 11 wickets came in 5 matches against West Indies.
We are backing wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan to bring back his lost form in the T20Is in this series. He can be a reliable opener in this format if he stays consistent in his form for a long time. He has played 91 T20Is so far in which he has smashed 2324 runs. Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill can be an ideal opening pair if they can sync well with each other and go on to become one of the strongest opening pairs in the T20 format.
Arshdeep is one bowler who is trying to cement his place in the Indian T20I team. India has lost many T20Is while defending the totals and Arshdeep can be the answer to those questions as he is an impressive death bowler. In 26 T20Is, Arshdeep has picked 41 wickets at an average of 17.78.
The 3-match ODI series between West Indies and India will start on 27th July at Barbados and next 2 ODIs will be on 29th July and 1st August at Barbados and Trinidad, respectively.
