Shikhar Dhawan's injury has thrown an opportunity at Sanju Samson, but the young keeper-batsman might sit out for this match.

According to the Cricbuzz report, skipper Virat Kohli has mentioned that the team will continue with Rishabh Pant as their keeper while KL Rahul will be at the top opening the innings with Rohit Sharma.

Mohammad Shami, who has returned to the T20I squad after a long time, might sit this one out with Deepak Chahar and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, another man coming back into the team.

There will be a toss-up between Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav for their own spot while Ravindra Jadeja and Washington Sundar will fight for one place.

West Indies keeper Nicholas Pooran is with the squad but will miss this match due to a ban. Denesh Ramdin will keep wickets for the West Indies. The rest of the side will be the same as the one which featured in the final match against Afghanistan a couple of weeks ago.

The Hyderabad wicket generally is good for seamers and spinners, but this year in IPL, it was seen that it held quite well for the batsmen as well. Pleasant weather is expected in Hyderabad with a good contest on hands.
