India have had a fruitful Caribbean tour so far as they sealed the ODI series by 3-1 and ended it on a high. They will be looking to do the same here as well in the one-off T20I at Sabina Park against the West Indies. When it comes to T20Is, West Indies are one of the most formidable sides the world has ever seen. Even without star players like Dwayne Bravo and Lendl Simmons, they have the power to take down any opposition and dominate any team. They are the only team with two World Championship title in the shortest version of the game.
Chris Gayle is back in the squad and so is Sunil Narine. Marlon Samuels too has been picked in the side with Carlos Brathwaite as their captain instead of Jason Holder. That means it will be a tough game for India who have dominated the hosts so far on their tour. West Indies have won 4 out of 7 T20Is they have played against India. The last time India were able to beat West Indies was in 2014.
There are no changes in the Indian squad. Though it will be interesting to see whether youngster Rishabh Pant gets a nod ahead of the senior players like Yuvraj Singh, Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav.
