On Sunday, August 13, at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill, the fifth and decisive T20 International match between the West Indies National Cricket Team and the India National Cricket Team was played.
Suryakumar Yadav, who is ranked No. 1 in T20I batting, was denied a six during the first innings of the game because to Powell’s excellent fielding. Suryakumar Yadav lofted the entire pitch down toward long-on on the third ball of the seventh over, which was bowled by Jason Holder and featured a slower delivery outside the off-stump.
Initially, it appeared as though the ball would fly for a six, but Rovman Powell’s outstanding effort close to the ropes prevented it from happening. The West Indies captain repositioned himself from long-on and perfectly timed his jump to collect the ball. He shown good judgment by immediately flicking the ball back after recognizing he was heading over the ropes, saving five runs for his team.
India chose to bat first in the game after winning the toss. For the pivotal match against the Men in Maroon, the Hardik Pandya-led team chose to play the same lineup.
After dropping the fourth T20I, though, West Indies once more made significant alterations to their starting lineup. Obed McCoy and Odean Smith were replaced by Alzarri Joseph and Roston Chase, respectively, as the Rovman Powell-led team searched for another spin-bowling option.

Powell mentioned they had been having some difficulties in the current T20I series against India during his remarks at the toss. He clarified:
I’m delighted to bowl first. We have had some difficulty. However, consecutive victories make our people happy. It is an excellent surface, in my opinion.
“You simply need to have strategies for various hitters. We simply sat down and thought of our finest possible combination. For McCoy, Joseph, our top bowler, is back.
