West Indies and India go head to head in the fifth T20I in Florida on Sunday, August 7 to end the five-match series. India are leading the series 3-1 after winning the fourth T20I by 59 runs and would like to end the campaign by making it 4-1. The players reached Florida for the final two-weekend games on August 4, Thursday. 

After an initial delay, the players from both teams were issued their US visas courtesy of the involvement of the Guyanese President. Irfan Ali, the President of Guyana, made all the efforts to make the visas available to the players from both teams.

“It was a timely and influential diplomatic effort by His Excellency,” said Ricky Skerritt, the president of Cricket West Indies (CWI), thanking the head of the Guyana government. 

India will play a few more T20I games in the build-up to the event in Australia. After the ongoing series, they play the Asia Cup which will be played in the UAE. They then host Australia and South Africa for two back-to-back T20I series. They will play close to 15-16 T20Is in the World Cup in Australia. 

West Indies too have been hampered by poor batting performances throughout the ODI and T20I series so far. Skipper Nicholas Pooran lamented about not putting up a fighting score after the third T20I loss.

“We know they got off to a flying start, but I was happy with the way our guys came back. Unfortunately we didn’t get a partnership, it was a par score. Not ideal to get run out, it changed the game. There was some miscommunication. But the other guys could have put their hands up and taken us over the line” said Pooran while coping up with another loss.
