India will be playing their last two consecutive matches of this T20I series in Florida on 6th & 7th of Aug, 2022. Indian team under Rohit Sharma (since Nov, 2021) has been performing pretty well across all three formats, while on the other hand, West Indies can take heart from their recent home T20I series results where they won against Bangladesh 2-0 and earlier in this year they defeated England 3-2 in a five-match series.
Indian team in the absence of KL Rahul have done few experiments by playing Rishabh Pant as an opener in previous T20I series and currently have promoted Suryakumar Yadav as opener, which is making Indian fans to think even more about the combo of their Playing XI in the upcoming series. As the time comes, it will be interesting to see how Indian team squad shapes up for T20 WC 2022.
