West Indies vs India, 4th T20I:

India regained the lead of the series with a seven-wicket victory in the third T20I on 2nd August, going 2-1 up. The caravan now moved to the United States for the last two games. The Men in Blue will look to seal the series when they meet West Indies at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill, Florida on Saturday, August 6th.

The men in maroon put on a better batting display in the third game on a good surface at Warner Park, posting 164/5 on the back of Kyle Mayers’ 50-ball 73. Hardik Pandya and Ravi Ashwin were economical while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep bowled the difficult overs pretty well.

Chasing the target, India got off to a flying start but lost Rohit Sharma in the second over as the Indian captain walked back due to back spasm. Suryakumar Yadav then put on an absolute masterclass with the bat, playing some glorious shots in his knock of 44-ball 76. Rishabh Pant saw off the run-chase with an unbeaten 33 off 26, crossing the line with an over to spare.

4th T20I: Five players to watch out for in the WI vs IND match

Here we take a look at five key players you must pick in your MPL fantasy XI:

Suryakumar Yadav: Batter, India

Suryakumar Yadav is by far the best T20 batter from India at the moment. The third T20I yet again showed just how good he is as he smashed 76 in just 44 balls, including eight fours and four sixes. His T20I record is mind-boggling, with 648 runs at an average of 38 while scoring at a whopping 176. The right hander has one hundred and five fifties from 20 innings at this level.

Kyle Mayers: Batter, West Indies

Kyle Mayers has only played 13 T20Is for the West Indies but has made useful contributions. The left hander held the innings together in the last game, scoring 73 off 50 balls. This was his second fifty in his last four T20Is, having scored 55 in the final game against Bangladesh last month. His overall numbers read 341 runs at 28 average and 144 strike rate.

Hardik Pandya: All-rounder, India

A fully fit Hardik Pandya is a huge asset not just for his team but in fantasy cricket as well. The all-rounder has done well with both bat and ball since his return to action. Hardik scored 31 and picked 1/22 in the second T20I. He was even better with the ball in the third game, claiming 1 for 19 in four overs. In his overall T20 career, Hardik has 3537 runs and 126 wickets.

Akeal Hosein: Bowler, West Indies

The left arm orthodox spinner is extremely good at defensive bowling in T20 cricket. Akeal Hosein has 56 wickets to his name while conceding at 6.42, with best figures of 4/30. He has done well in the ongoing series, picking a wicket in each game at 5.33 rpo, which is mind-blowing when you consider India have scored 190 and 165 in two of the games.

Arshdeep Singh: Bowler, India

The 23yr old left arm pacer has been the best Indian bowler in death overs this year, conceding at less than 7 runs per over. Arshdeep Singh has bowled brilliantly for India in four games he has played in, picking 6 wickets at an economy of 6.52. His overall T20 career numbers read 62 wickets from 55 games at 7.82 rpo.
