India vs WI 2022: 4th T20 Predicted Playing 11 for both Teams – No Rohit

Rohit Sharma expected to be rested as we look at predicted playing 11 for Team India for the 4th T20 vs West Indies (WI).

The third T20I between India and West Indies may have gone in India’s favour, but we also witnessed a piece of unfortunate news. Captain Rohit Sharma had to walk off the field after being affected by Back spasm. He didn’t take part in the entire match thereon, and was sent for scans to check his medical conditions. 

Now, back spasm isn’t a major injury. But the extent to which it can affect will only be known on the match day. Between 3rd  and 4th T20I, India have a good 3 days break. This should ideally give Rohit a good time to recover. But will Rohit risk his health for a meaningless bilateral series? Well, this would be a big question going into the 4th T20I. 

The 4th and 5th T20I between India and West Indies will be played at Lauderhill in the US. The Lauderhill ground has mixed memories for the Indian team. They have played 4 matches here; all T20Is. Of these four, India have won two, lost one, and one ended with no result. The 2016 match was an epic encounter where more than 480 runs were scored in the match. 

Nevertheless, assuming Rohit doesn’t get fit, what could be the best predicted playing 11 for Team India for the 4th T20 vs West Indies? Let’s find out in this article. Let’s also look at the updated playing 11 for West Indies, who could also fancy a few changes after their loss in the 3rd T20I.

Playing 11 for Both Teams:

Team India’s biggest question on display would be, can Rohit Sharma get fit before the 4th T20I? Well, technically India shouldn’t risk Rohit even if he has recovered. The current T20I series is a meaningless affair. A fit Rohit would be needed for the most important Asia Cup 2022. So, if Rohit doesn’t play, Ishan Kishan should take his place as an opener. 

For the middle-order, India should play the same trio of Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, and Hardik Pandya. Even as Shreyas Iyer has been in extremely poor form in T20Is, India might give him a couple of more chances to prove his mettle. This has been India’s philosophy, so expect it to not change just after 1-2 bad matches. 

Apart from this, India will see Harshal Patel returning to the playing 11 instead of Avesh Khan. Harshal had missed the first three T20Is due to a Rib injury. However, he is expected to be fit by the fourth T20I. This would make India’s death bowling strongest with Harshal, Arshdeep Singh, and Bhuvi in the ranks. 

The rest of the playing 11 should remain the same. So, we have Suryakumar Yadav opening with Ishan Kishan. Deepak Hooda and Dinesh Karthik will play as finishers. Whereas Ravichandran Ashwin should continue to lead the spin attack for Team India. Meanwhile, in Rohit Sharma’s absence, Hardik Pandya should captain the Indian team.

Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (WK), Hardik Pandya (C), Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar & Arshdeep Singh

For West Indies, things should remain the same. They might not want to tinker with their line-up even as they suffered a big loss.

Kyle Mayers, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (C), Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell, Devon Thomas (WK),  Jason Holder, Dominic Drakes, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph & Obed McCoy

So, that’s the best predicted playing 11 for both teams. For India, the availability of Rohit Sharma would be a big question. If he is available, he should continue to lead the side, and Ishan Kishan will have to make way for him.
