    After winning the toss and choosing to bat first, Indian skipper Hardik Pandya noted that Suryakumar Yadav is not part of the side for this final game of this Caribbean tour. Suryakumar was tried with a new role that of an opener in the last four T20I matches against West Indies and has now been rested for this encounter. The right-hander also scored an impressive match-winning half-century in the 3rd T20I game.

    “We want to bat. We saw how the wicket slowed down yesterday. We want to bat on a fresher wicket. We are like we are not playing at Miami. 99 percent of the fans are supporting India. No matter what happens, we have set some standards for the Indian cricket team. We need to go out there and showcase our skill set. Obviously, the coach, the captain and senior members have done some tremendous job. 4 changes to the team,” said India’s stand-in captain Hardik Pandya.
