The last T20 match between the two teams was played in August this year, which India won by seven wickets.

After the World Cup this year, Team India went to West Indies and defeated it on its home turf. Team India won the T20 series by 3-0 and the Test series by 2-0.

The second match of the T20 series will be played in Thiruvananthapuram on December 8 and the third match will be played in Mumbai on December 11.
