We agree with our oddsmakers - this should be a comfortable victory for India in what has been a comfortable series.
One poor performance aside, they have totally dominated the West Indies in both the 50-over and Twenty20 format, leaving skipper Nicolas Pooran and his charges with much to ponder ahead of the world cup this winter.
It’s hard to point to exactly what went wrong, but India’s squad has had a cohesiveness to it that feels alarmingly lacking for the West Indies.
It’s difficult to completely write off the West Indies ahead of November - they are a proud group with phenomenal history in the shortest format. Indeed, no team has won more international titles than them. But they are clearly in a transitional moment - Pooran only recently got offered the armband after the retirement of Kieron Pollard, while stalwarts of the side, including Chris Gayle, are making way for a new generation.
The gulf between the West Indies and India at the moment is visibly apparent. We’re backing India to come out on top!

Is there a more underrated Twenty20 bowler in world cricket right now than this guy? A master of toe-crushing death bowling, Singh was at his controlling best on Saturday, registering figures of 3/12 from 3.1 overs.
While the rest of the cricketing world takes its time to administer the credit he deserves, his teammates are under no disillusions. Ahead of the fourth Twenty20, Bhuvneshwar Kumar explained why is growing maturity is impressing the entire Indian bowling unit.
“The best thing about him is that he knows exactly what is required, what kind of field setting is needed, how to bowl at each batsman. Very few newcomers have this kind of maturity.” he told the Times of India.
At odds of 3.85 with Pure Win, he is the shortest price of the Indian bowlers to take the most wickets, reflecting the respect he’s garnering among bookmakers. We think it’s a bet worth making.
For the West Indies, we’re keeping it simple. Back Nicolas Pooran to be the tip West Indies batsman - he’s the only player that feels reliable in this line-up.
Arshdeep Singh top IND bowler - 3.85
Nicolas Pooran top WI batsman - 3.9
The visitors extended the West Indies vs India head to head record to 14-6 with victory on Saturday, and we fully expect them to widen that gap once more.
The 12th T20I at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground went as smoothly as one could hope for - a good surface was exploited ruthlessly by India’s batting unit.
India’s victory on Saturday means they have now won twice in the four matches here, while the defeat for the West Indies means they have won just three times in eight matches.
Florida’s weather is nigh-on impossible to predict - but we’re expecting largely clear skies for a full day’s play.
There are no new injuries for Nicolas Pooran to consider - he has a full squad to pick from, though he may opt for some changes after the disappointing defeat on Saturday.
An injury scare to Rohit Sharma had left him doubtful for the fourth T20I, but he pulled through and displayed the sort of class we’ve come to expect from India’s new captain with a well-made 33 from just 16 balls.
National tema selectors have a full squad available to them, but they may opt to stick with a winning formula!
The series has been won by India - now it’s a question of how damaging the defeat will be for the West Indies. Even at 1.45, the odds feel generous on India to win. We can’t see any other result.
