Preview:
The final game of India’s tour of West Indies will be played on Thursday, during the late hours. Harmanpreet Kaur and co are eyeing on a clean sweep. The first two games certainly saw Shafali Verma as the star for the Indians with two consecutive fifties. Moreover, a similar pattern was seen in the third and fourth matches too.
West Indies was seen struggling against the spin threat that the Indians possess and also they haven’t been capable to be able to compete with the hosts. Therefore, Indians will be expected to win T20i as weel. However, WI has shown signs of improvement over the course of the series, so the game in Guyana can turn out to be very interesting this time.

Weather condition:
Rain is expected at the stadium once again, which may turn out to be a spoilsport. But a shortened game should happen. The temperature hovers around 27 to 29 degrees Celsius and 97% of cloud cover is expected by the start of the match.

Pitch condition:
A slow track was provided in the previous games, and similarly, this game should be no different. The spinners are expected to play a major role in the game, and similarly the batters may find it difficult in the middle. Teams will prefer to bat first and make good use of the match conditions, upfront with the pitch slowing down as the game progresses.

Our Perfect 11 Team:
Natasha McLean, Shemaine Campbelle, Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur, Poonam Yadav, Afy Fletcher(VC), R Yadav (C), H Matthews, P Vastrakar.

Top picks:
Deepthi Sharma has picked eight wickets so far in the series, and her off-spin is certainly causing a lot of trouble to the West Indies batters. As she is capable of scoring some runs in the middle order as well, Deepthi Sharma can be called as a valuable asset to any side.
Shafali Verma on the same side is the top runscorer in the series with 149 runs. There are two fifties to her name already and she looks good for more runs in the final T20.

On the other hand, from the West Indies roster, Hayley Matthews is the best bet with both bat and ball. Hayley has been picking wickets regularly, and also she is crucial to their chances of salvaging some pride against the Indians.
