India vs West Indies 2019: Combined T20 XI
India will play its final cricket series of this decade against the power-packed West Indies at home. The two sides will first lock horns in a three-match T20I series before battling each other in three ODIs.
India have been unstoppable at home this year, having already crushed South Africa and Bangladesh. They are yet to lose a series at home in the 2019-20 season.
Last year India had defeated West Indies 3-0 in a three-match T20I series, and the Men in Blue also won the T20I series this year in Caribbean conditions. But although India have a lot of firepower in their team, the visitors possess incredible talent as well.
Moreover, the likes of Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Jason Holder, Shimron Hetmyer and Evin Lewis also have experience of playing in Indian conditions.
On that note, let us have a look at the combined T20 XI featuring players from both the nations.
#1 Rohit Sharma
Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma holds the record for the most runs in T20 internationals. The right-handed batsman is the only Indian male player to feature in 100 T20Is, and he also owns the record for the highest number of hundreds in T20I cricket.
Holding the number 8 position in ICC T20 rankings for batsmen, Sharma can be a valuable addition to any T20 team on the planet.
#2 Evin Lewis
Evin Lewis has been an invaluable asset for the West Indies team in the limited overs format. The left-handed opener has replaced Chris Gayle as the team’s big-hitting opener, and has aggregated 753 runs at a strike rate of 153.05 in the 26 T20I matches he has played.
Lewis' explosive performances have earned him the seventh spot in the ICC T20 rankings. Besides, all the IPL franchises will be monitoring his performances because Mumbai Indians have released him from their team.
