Series: Afghanistan vs. West Indies in India, 2019
Venue: Ekana International Cricket Stadium, Lucknow
Date: November 14, 2019
Time: 07:00 p.m. IST
After West Indies whitewashed Afghanistan 3-0 in the recently concluded ODI series, they are now on the business to clean sweep the T20I series as well. West Indies have made some changes in their T20 squad, but this should not reflect the results. On the other hand, Afghanistan will be out to restore their ODI series defeat.
The forecast shows there is no chance of rain and a full 40 overs game is in the cards.
Playing on the same pitch where three ODIs were already played, the wicket is expected to be slower side and should help bowlers in this series.
Nicholas Pooran has been suspended by ICC for four T20I matches for altering the condition of the ball during the third ODI against Afghanistan and will miss this entire series.
Probable Playing XI:
A few changes are made in West Indies T20I squad for this series Lendl Simmons is back, while Brandon King is expected to make his debut. First-choice wicket-keeper, Nicholas Pooran, is suspended, leaving Denesh Ramdin as the choice. The onus of pick early breakthroughs will be Sheldon Cottrell and Alzarri Joseph.
