This not only brings a change in format but also a change in the venue. It is great to see cricket being spread across multiple nations. A country like USA also has cricket fans. So we would expect a full house here at the Central Broward Regional Park which is the only US stadium certified for cricket by the ICC.
Indian coach Anil Kumle has expressed a lot of pleasure visiting such a cricket venue that is complete in terms of facilities and infrastructure. He also praised the pitch and fast outfield that is a complete fit for T20 cricket.
India has dominated the test series but they would face a bigger challenge with the change of format. West Indies as a team is a completely different outfit when it comes to T20 cricket. They play fearless cricket and dominate the 20 overs they bat. With the likes of Chris Gayle, Simmons, Bravo, Badree, Narine and Russell; the team looks unbeatable. Not to forget, West Indies is the T20 World Champions and they defeated India in the semi finals of recently concluded T20 World Cup in 2016.
Indian team will be lead by MS Dhoni. He would return to the reign for limited overs cricket while Virat Kohli will serve the vice captaincy. It would be an interesting contest between Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle - the two stars of today's and tomorrow's T20 matches.
Here are the squads for two T20 matches:
India: MS Dhoni (capt, wk), R Ashwin, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, Shikhar Dhawan, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Amit Mishra, Stuart Binny, Mohammed Shami, Ajinkya Rahane, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Umesh Yadav.
West Indies: Carlos Brathwaite (capt), Johnson Charles (wk), Samuel Badree, Dwayne Bravo, Evin Lewis, Andre Fletcher, Chris Gayle, Jason Holder, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons.
