India vs West Indies T20 Match Brings Gayle Back into the Action

India vs West Indies T20 International Match Preview

After a dull kind of ODI series between India and West Indies, T20 cricket should bring some excitement. We can't blame the ODI format but the way West Indies as a team has lost lustre. That was clearly evident through empty stands during the ODI series. Cricket moves on to the shortest format as these two teams battle it out in the only T20I match from this bilateral series.

Chris Gayle returns!

The boss of T20 cricket returns with this match. This would certainly draw a lot of spectators to the stadium. We all are familiar with his explosive batting in the T20 format. If he goes going, be ready for some towering sixes. That too at his home ground, the Sabina Park in Jamaica. He replaces Lendl Simmons who wasn't impressive enough in the series against Afghanistan.

He played his last match for West Indies in the 2016 T20 cricket world cup final against England. There were indications that he may never play for West Indies again. But his inclusion hints another run from the prolific batsman.

Florida Meeting!

Last time these two teams met each other for T20 matches in Florida. First match was won by West Indies by one run while the second was interrupted by rain. Time for India to square off the things this time.

Head to head

West Indies have had an upper hand against India in this format. Out of the seven T20 matches played between these two teams, India could manage just two wins whereas West Indies won four. One ended without any result.
