India beat West Indies by 59 runs



  • The series is gone from West Indies’ perspective as they were comprehensively outplayed in the fourth T20i between these two nations, bowled out for just 132 chasing 192 to win after winning toss and bowling first.
  • Bowler Obed McCoy had a game to forget, his four overs being hit for 66 runs although he did take two wickets and having been West Indies’ best bowler across the series so far, he will rightly be persisted with.
  • The Windies could look at switching around their top order in the remaining game, with this one not so much about pride but more about experimenting ahead of the T20 World Cup.


  • Despite no India batter making a half-century, they successfully accrued a score of 191/5 which is a testament to not only the strength-in-depth but also the team effort of their batting order.
  • Although he had suffered a terrible series up to this point, Avesh Khan bounced back in some style, taking two wickets at an economy rate of just 4.25 an over, justifying the faith in him shown by his captain and coach who have stuck by him and will likely do so again in this final T20i.
  • Axar Patel and Ravi Bishnoi were deployed as the primary spin-bowling options with Ravichandran Ashwin having been rested and a decision will have to be taken on whether to bring Ashwin back into the team.


India really showed their class on Saturday and are in a prime position to go again less than 24 hours later. Whilst West Indies have been competitive across the series, India’s superiority has been firmly evident in the past couple of games and it’s hard not to see that continuing, especially when factoring in the short turnaround in fixtures. Back India to once again come out on top and finish this T20i series with a flourish ahead of the Asia Cup later beginning later this month.
