The Men in Maroon have come into this series on the back of variably successful and unsuccessful series against Sri Lanka, England, New Zealand and Bangladesh.

Preparing for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup, West Indies have recalled some of their greats — Chris Gayle is back into the squad alongside the in-form Fidel Edwards who will be making his comeback into the national team after almost 6 years.

Having won the first match, West Indies will hope to seal the series on Saturday.
