The hosts have played excellent cricket against Australia in this T20I series. Kieron Pollard is expected to come into the final XI as Shimron Hetymer or Andre Fletcher could be rested for this fourth T20I.
After suffering from a lean run in the T20 format, stand-in captain Nicholas Pooran managed to find some form with the bat for West Indies. The left-hander scored unbeaten 32 off 27 balls to see West Indies complete the chase in the 15th over of the innings.
The big positive from the previous game was veteran batsman Chris Gayle showing excellent form with the bat. Left-hander smashed a scintillating 67 runs to help West Indies cruise to a comfortable win. He smashed four boundaries and seven sixes in his innings.
Due to a match-winning half-century in the previous game, Chris Gayle is the leading run-scorer in this T20I series, in-form all-rounder Andre Russell is the second most run-scorer in this series by scoring 82 runs as his scores in this series are 51,24*, 7* runs.
Shimron Hetymer has shown decent form in this T20I series and scored match-winning 61 runs in the second game of this series.
Leg-spinner Hayden Walsh Jr. has picked up eight wickets in three matches while left-arm pacer Obed McCoy, who bowled just one over in the previous T20I, has got 5 wickets in two matches. Also, the left-arm spinner Fabian Allen has taken 4 wickets in this series.
After suffering back-to-back defeats in the T20I series, the visitors will be desperate to turn things around in the T20 format.
Captain Aaron Finch (30 off 31 balls) and Mathew Wade (23 off 16 balls) played superbly in the previous game and they will need to continue their decent form in this game as well. All-rounder Mitchell Marsh has shown excellent form with the bat in this T20Iseries by scoring 51, 54 and 9 runs respectively.
The All-rounder duo of Moises Henriques and Ashton Turner put on a 59-run partnership to help Australia post a modest score of 141 runs in their allotted 20 overs. Henriques scored 33 runs off 29 balls with the help of two sixes. He was well supported by Ashton Turner, who scored 24 runs off 22 balls.
In the last game, left-arm quick Mitchell Starc made a stunning comeback with the ball in hand. He picked one wicket and conceded only just 15 runs in his four overs.
In this T20I series, Pacer Josh Hazlewood has got four wickets in three matches while Mitchell Marsh has taken 3 wickets in three matches.
