West Indies and India locked horns with each other in the fifth T20 match on Sunday, August 7 at Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Florida. India had sealed the series by winning the fourth T20I. West Indies captain Nicholas Pooran went on to win the toss and he invited India to bat first. The men in blue put up quite a display with the bat as they scored 191 runs with a loss of five wickets.

While the hosts made no changes in their playing XI, India made as many as three changes as Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, and Shreyas Oyer made way for Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, and Samson. West Indies failed to chase down the total as the hosts got bundled out for a meager score of 132 runs. Avesh Khan received the player of the match reward for his spell of 2-17 in his quota of 4 overs.

However, during the game, the Indian wicket-keeper, Rishabh Pant was seen instructing Sanju Samson in the Malayalam language in the fourth T20I. It seems like Sanju Samson has taught a word or two to the whole team. Rishabh said Easy Chetta to Sanju Samson which means Easy Brother in English.
