Here's a look at the predicted playing XIs of both teams.

"I know the crowd in Kolkata is always massive so it's very, very loud".

"Hopefully we can have as exciting a battle as we've had in those two games and hopefully we can get the same result with the West Indies coming out on top".

West Indies, the defending T20 World champion, will have a new captain and a refurbished squad to challenge the host, which strives to maintain its sway going into the final leg of the bi-lateral series which begins here at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.
