India vs. West Indies, 4th T20I: Bowlers shine as India defeats West Indies to take a solid 3-1 lead led by Rishabh Pant

India won the fourth game of a five-match series against the West Indies at the Broward County Stadium in Florida, 59 runs, to advance their preparation for the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup.

India won the fourth game of a five-match series against the West Indies by a score of 59 runs, advancing their preparation for the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup. The game was played at the Broward County Stadium in Florida.

Sharma said following the game, “We knew it was not going to be easy because of the conditions.
