Ruthless batting from Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill helped India edge over West Indies by nine wickets in the 4th T20I at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill, Florida.

Speaking about how the game unfolded, skipper Rovman Powell won the toss and elected to bat first. Arshdeep Singh drew the first blood for India by dismissing Kyle Mayers for 17 runs. He then dismissed Brandon King for 18 runs in the same over. Kuldeep Yadav joined the party and picked up two wickets in his over to reduce West Indies to 57/4.

Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer then added 49 runs for the fifth wicket. However, Yuzvendra Chahal broke the partnership by dismissing Hope for 45 runs. Romario Shepherd and Jason Holder were dismissed in quick succession. Hetmyer reached his fifth fifty in T20Is before being dismissed by Arshdeep Singh in the 20th over. West Indies managed to post a respectable total of 178 for 8 wickets.

In response to West Indies’ 178, Indian openers Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill were ruthless against the meak Windies bowlers, recording the joint-second-highest partnership for India in T20Is. The West Indies bowlers had no answer to the Indian openers as they put together 165 runs for the first wicket.

Shubman Gill (77 off 63) reached his second fifty-plus score before being dismissed by Romario Shepherd in the 16th over. Jaiswal remained unbeaten on 84 runs and Tilak Verma chipped in with a quick cameo to help India reach 178 in 17 overs. The win helped India level the series 2-2, with Jaiswal winning the Player of the Match award for his unbeaten 84 runs.
