The Windies will find tough to beat India in India, they never won a single series on the Indian soil. With big names like Gayle, Russell and Sunil Narine missing, the youngsters and the experienced player like Kieron Pollard and Jason Holder should step in and deliver in this crunch situation.

Here are the 5 key players from the West Indies team to watch out for –   

Kieron Pollard – The Big Man now is the leader of this West Indies unit. He is an effective all-rounder and when he is in form he will thrash any opponent. He will be the most important player on this tour to India. He has played on the Indian pitches in the Indian Premier League for the franchise Mumbai Indians. He knows how the pitches in India play and he has played in the most of the stadiums in India as well. So his experience will be vital for the Windies team. He may be new and inexperienced as a captain but as a player, he is pure class. His loss against Afghanistan in the T20 series will keep in check but the win in the ODI series against the same opponent will motivate him.

Jason Holder – Another fearsome all-rounder who will take the game away from the opponent. West Indies have him in the 50 over format and the longest version of the game. But now the defending champions will need Holder to hold the innings in the shortest format. He is the one guy whom West Indies will rely on. He has the experienced player alongside Pollard. He is ever ready to bowl long spells, to field or to bat long if needed. Holder is the guy who can change the gears in quick succession and that poses the pressure on the opposition. Holder as the bowler was good against Afghanistan but as the batsman, he needs to be promoted up the order. This is a golden chance for Jason Holder to cement his place in the T20 International squad for the World T20 in 2020 in Australia.

Evin Lewis – Another player from the Mumbai Indians squad. He also a dangerous batsman in the top order. Lewis often opens the innings for West Indies and he is dam good at it. His 125 run knock against India 2 years ago is the mighty proof of that. He has a good record against India and he is also the experienced player for Windies in these sub-continent conditions. He wasn’t that good in the T20 series against Afghanistan but against the same opponent, he played well in the 50 over format. In the absence of Gayle, it upon Lewis to give a solid start for the visiting team. He needs to use the IPL experience which he has gained playing for Mumbai Indians.

Sheldon Cottrell – The Bowler which may threaten India. For the first-ever time, he will be bowling in the sub-continent conditions and his inexperience may cause the problem for the visiting team. But he has a decent record against India and his economy in the T20 Internationals is below 7. West Indies will want Cottrell to continue his good work and his bowling style will trouble India as many of the batsmen will cant play the incoming deliveries. If Cottrell gets the top three of the Indian batting line up and that too inside the first six overs than Cottrell has done half the job for his team.

Shrimron Hetmyer – He started the tour of India with a bang last year and that also allowed him to earn the IPL contract. But over a period of time, his form hasn’t been too great. Hetmyer has been disappointing and he will be a problem for West Indies in this series. his form was not good in the 2019 world cup and the series against India and Afghanistan he didn’t do well either. But still West Indies have gone with him and they expect Hetmyer to fight all odds in this series. Now he has the experience from the IPL and the recent series against Afghanistan, so one might expect the left-hander to do well in this limited over the competition.
