The West Indies take on Afghanistan in the Indian city of Lucknow where only one previous Twenty20 international has been held.
In that game in November 2018, the Windies were thumped by India as Rohit Sharma struck an unbeaten 111 from just 61 balls.
Afghanistan are 6-5 to inflict another defeat on the men from the Caribbean and their brilliant spin attack of Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb-ur-Rahman can trouble any batsmen on subcontinental pitches.
Even without that trio, the Afghans won Monday's 50-over tour match by four wickets after bowling out the Windies for just 156.
Hazratullah Zazai was dismissed early in the run-chase but the opener can be a devastating Twenty20 hitter as he proved when smashing 162 not out off only 62 deliveries against Ireland last year.
He had already scored 74 off 33 and 82 off 54 against the Irish in 2018 and he top-scored with 47 in September's Twenty20 clash with Bangladesh.
