The India vs West Indies 2017 T20 match will be broadcast LIVE online on SonyLIV.com and TV Coverage on Sony Six, Sony Six HD, Ten 1 HD and Ten 3.

IST: India pick three wicket-keepers and four spinners.

Skipper Virat Kohli might open the innings when India take on the West Indies in a one-off Twenty20, aiming to finish their Caribbean sojourn on a high despite the threat posed by Chris Gayle's return to the home team.

Virat Kohli: I did want to better my toss record - I called heads five times and lost every time. When we end up thinking too much, we end up compromising too much in a T20 game.

While West Indies will depend seriously on their adventurous batter Chris Gayle who has joined the T20 team to deliver them a decent opening beside a good Indian bowling array. Riding on his knock the West Indies chased down the total of 190 in just 18.3 overs. The guys have played in IPL, so have a lot of exposure.

Lewis plundered six fours and 12 sixes en route to the highest T20 score by a West Indian, eclipsing the 117 belonging to Chris Gayle, who partnered him at the top of the order in his first global appearance since the World T20 final against England in April 2016.

West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite revealed he had offered his batsmen a sweetener.

The visitors have the same squad which won them the ODI series 3-1 while the Carlos Brathwaite-led West Indies have made significant changes for the match. Brathwaite, all-rounder Kieron Pollard, and Marlon Samuels are the other significant additions for the side in the striking section, which will appear to go firm at the Indian bowlers.
