The match will be played at the Greenfield Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram. Before this match, there is only one question on everyone's tongue, whether local player Sanju Samson will get a place in the team? Samson is only the third player from Kerala to make a place in the Indian team. Before them, Tinu Yohana and S. Sreesanth have played for the national team.
Samson has come into the team in place of injured Dhawan
Samson was also selected against Bangladesh in T20 but he could not make it to the last-11. He was dropped from the team for the Windies series but was recalled to the team after Shikhar Dhawan was injured. Now that the second T20 is in Samson's house, local fans want Samson to get the chance and he is also confident that Samson will get a chance on Sunday.

Our only concern is whether we will be able to watch the entire 20-over match because there is a possibility of rain. "
Drainage system of stadium is effective
Pitch curator Biju said about the problems arising from the rain that the stadium's drainage system is so effective that the ground staff will need only 30 minutes to resume the match after the rain. Biju said, "There are 3500 pipes inside the turf and as soon as the water goes down, it will also go out. If it rains during the match tomorrow, then we will need only 30 minutes to resume the match."
This is the third match on this ground. On 7 November 2017, the teams of India and New Zealand played the first international match here which was T20 but due to rain it was eight overs per innings. After this, the second match was played in ODIs, which was played between India and the Windies. This ODI match was played on November 1, 2018.
