Rohit Sharma has been in sensational form. He chipped in with two 150’s and a half-century in the Windies ODI series. He will be looking forward to continuing his slick flow of batting against Windies in the T20I series. In Kohli’s absence, he leads the team. He has a good captaincy record and he will look to bolster the record against Windies by his astute captaincy traits.

It’s time for Shikhar Dhawan to free his arms in the T20I series after failing to create an impact in the ODI series. It was indeed a rare failure for Dhawan as he failed to score a half-century against Windies series, with little to no success. Keeping that mind, he will look to perform well this time.
