WI vs IND, 5th T20I Pitch Report:
Given how the previous game went, it wouldn’t be inaccurate to describe the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground as having a balanced surface. In the first inning, Indian batsmen took advantage of the surface to score runs, while the bowlers were able to keep the West Indies batting order to under 150. The narrative for this game may be the same, and the team that wins the toss may once more decide to bat. The first-batting team in this game may be able to score above 180 runs, compared to the average first innings score of 158 runs in the last 5 T20 matches played here.

Top Picks for WI vs IND Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
In the series, Suryakumar Yadav has scored the most runs for India. With an average of 33.75 and a strike rate of 168.75, he has scored 135 runs in 4 games. In the third T20I, the newest opener for India was named Player of the Match. The right-handed hitter scored 24 runs in the last game off just 14 deliveries, contributing to a first-wicket total of 53 runs.
In the previous game, Rohit Sharma contributed to India scoring 65 runs in the powerplay overs with a score of 33 runs off 16 deliveries. In 13 T20I matches this year, the Indian captain has only been able to reach a solitary half-century. Given that India, the defending champions, will play in the Asia Cup later this month, he would be hoping to close the series on a high note.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
India has found a middle-order hitter in Deepak Hooda who can also bowl occasionally. As of right now, Hooda has been able to fulfil all the requirements, making him one of the players who may make the starting 11 for the T20 World Cup later this year. With a strike rate of 162.75, Hooda, who made his T20I debut in February of this year, has scored 236 runs in 8 games.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Obed McCoy has taken 9 wickets in 4 games for an average of 16.33, making him the series’ top wicket-taker. The left-arm pacer, who finished with his highest bowling statistic of 6 for 17 runs, was the reason West Indies could win the third T20I. He also picked up two wickets in the previous game.
The series’ biggest discovery for India has been Arshdeep Singh. During the most recent game, the left-arm bowler recorded his highest bowling figure in T20Is. He took 3 wickets for just 12 runs, making him India’s series-leading wicket-taker. The 23-year-old bowler has taken 7 wickets at an average of 13.57 in 4 games.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
Rishabh Pant has over 20 runs scored in each of his past three innings, with the exception of the first game. In the third game, he ended the contest for India, and he performed admirably in the last game as well. India lost both of its openers in the powerplay overs for 61 runs before Pant entered the fray. He continued to bat for the following 9.3 overs, at which time India scored 85 runs. In the first four games of this series, Pant also has scored 115 runs at an average of 38.33 and a strike rate of 141.98.
Sanju Samson didn’t make the starting 11 in the first three T20Is despite going for a half-century in the three-match ODI series. He was also a member of the starting 11 for the most recent game and was assigned to bat at position number five. Samson helped India over the 190-run threshold in the match with a 30 run performance off just 23 deliveries.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for WI vs IND Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav (C), Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Deepak Hooda (VC), Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Obed McCoy, Arshdeep Singh, Ravi Bishnoi.
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for WI vs IND Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Sanju Samson (VC), Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma (C), Suryakumar Yadav, Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder, Axar Patel, Deepak Hooda, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Obed McCoy, Dominic Drakes.
WI vs IND Risky Captaincy Choices:
Although Rovman Powell made a respectable start in his final two games, he was unable to capitalise on it. In the previous game, he scored 24 runs on just 16 deliveries. He also scored 23 off of 14 in the third T20I. Since Powell is an important member of the West Indies middle order, one would anticipate a respectable showing from him in this contest.
Axar Patel played against West Indies in his maiden T20I game in the previous game. He scored 20 runs with the bat off just 8 pitches. He and Sanju Samson also scored 27 runs off the final nine balls as India amassed 191 runs in just 20 overs. Despite taking 2 wickets in 4 overs, he conceded 48 runs.
Player you should avoid:
You can ignore Devon Thomas for this game because the wicketkeeper-batter hasn’t reached double digits in either of the last two games.
