WI vs IND 4th T20I match preview
West Indies, who edged out the visitors in the first two games, couldn't quite make it three in a row as they went down by seven wickets in the third T20I. They won the toss and elected to bat first, and even had a pretty decent start with the openers adding 55 runs in 7.4 overs. Brandon King scored 42 but those came at a run-a-ball. Nicholas Pooran looked good with 20 off 10 but was stumped at the wrong time. Captain Rovman Powell provided a much-needed finish, blasting 40 not-out in just 19 balls to power his side to 159.
Obed McCoy and Alzarri Joseph removed the Indian openers but the bowling attack had no answers to Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma, who put on an 87-run stand for the third wicket. Unlike the hosts in the second game, India didn't let the opponents get back into the game and finished the chase quickly.
This WI vs IND prediction would be incomplete without discussing the possible playing XI. The hosts could make a couple of changes with Jason Holder likely coming back. Johnson Charles has been below par in the series and could be replaced by Shai Hope.
WI Possible 11: Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Shai Hope (wk), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell (c), Romario Shepherd, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Obed McCoy
The Hardik Pandya-led side finally managed to break through the hosts to register a comfortable victory in the third game by seven wickets. Having been asked to bowl first, India couldn't get early wickets but Kuldeep Yadav turned things in favour with his spell. He snared 3 for 28 in four overs while Axar Patel picked 1 for 24. Death overs bowling, however, wasn't great.
Chasing 160, India lost Yashasvi Jaiswal in the first over while Shubman Gill fell for just 6 off 11. Suryakumar Yadav, who didn't do much in the first two games, delivered a match-winning knock of 83 in just 44 balls. Tilak Varma continued his good run and made an unbeaten 49 off 37 deliveries.
As per our WI vs IND prediction for the fourth T20I, we believe India will go into the match with an unchanged side. Yashasvi Jaiswal made his debut in the previous game with Ishan Kishan sitting out. Arshdeep Singh and Mukesh Kumar should both keep their places.

Our WI vs IND Dream11 predictions for this match
Let's now go deeper into our WI vs IND Dream11 prediction and discuss why we have picked the above fantasy xi for this game. Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav are either in great form or offer great dual value, and we have based our side around them.
Yashasvi Jaiswal might have fallen cheaply in the previous game but he had an incredible season in the Indian league in May. Shubman Gill hasn't been able to adapt to slower surfaces on this tour but Florida is likely to have a flatter pitch and we expect him to deliver. Tilak Varma, who bats at no. 4 is a must pick for what he has done so far in three games. Rovman Powell smashed 48 off 32 in the opening game and a 19-ball 40 not-out in the third game.
We're going with two all-rounders in this match, with Kyle Mayers and Hardik. Mayers struck 25 off 20 in the last game and should enjoy batting in Lauderhill.
Kuldeep Yadav was superb in the previous game, bagging 3 for 28 and has been in pretty good form overall. Yuzvendra Chahal was wicketless in the last game but has taken two wickets each in the first two T20Is. Alzarri Joseph was the pick of the bowlers for West Indies in the previous game and his pace can be a difference.
For captaincy, we are going with Suryakumar Yadav and Nicholas Pooran. SKY produced a spectacular knock in the last game and his T20I record is just sublime. Pooran has been in exceptional form this year and is the second leading run-scorer in the series. He will be our VC for this game.
WI vs IND 4th T20I match prediction: India to win
India have had the upper hand in the head to head record with 18 wins out of 28 clashes between the two sides. The men in blue delivered in the last game to register a comfortable win. Their batting unit should do better at this venue while spin attack should trouble the Windies batters. Our WI vs IND match prediction is for India to win.
WI vs IND toss prediction: India to win the toss and bat first
This venue in Lauderhill, Florida has hosted a total of 24 matches across domestic and international cricket and the team batting first has won 17 of those.

Man of the match prediction: Suryakumar Yadav to win
Our WI vs IND prediction for the man of the match is Suryakumar Yadav. The Indian batter had an average tour until the last game, where he smashed a blistering 83 off 44 balls to help India win. SKY has scored over 1700 runs in T20I cricket at an average of 46 and strike rate of 174.
