Squad Comparison

West Indies

Windies started off the T20 series with a very disappointing performance from the batsmen in the 1st T20 match. John Campbell and Evin Lewis were both out for a duck, while Kieron Pollard was the highest run-scorer with 49 off 49 balls in the 95 runs innings. With a deep batting lineup having hitters like Brathwaite and Narine at number 7 and 8, they would have expected a much better performance than this.
Shimron Hetmyer got a good start with 2 sixes

and a four, at number 3. He was dismissed by Navdeep Saini soon. Navdeep Saini did surprise everyone in the Windies camp along with Washington Sundar as if they weren’t prepared for these bowlers. We expect West Indies to make a comeback and be well prepared to face India’s newest crop of bowlers. While the bowling department put a great effort in defending such a low total, it would be the only positive for Windies form the 1st match. Sunil Narine had figures of 2 for 14, while Sheldon Cottrell finished 2 for 20. They have a bowling attack strong enough to defend 160 plus total at this ground and will be backing their bowlers to put them in a strong position in the 2nd T20 against India.

India

A fantastic performance from the bowlers – Navdeep Saini, Washington Sundar, Jadeja, Krunal Pandya helped India to get on top of the game in the 1st innings. Surprisingly India went with 3 spinners in the side – all the all-rounders while going for 3 pace bowlers. The plan worked effectively as the spinners bowled to perfection keeping the economy rates tight. While Navdeep Saini picked 3 wickets for 17 with a maiden in his spell making him the impact bowler for India.

Kohli’s 19 off 29 balls was another surprise, as India kept losing wickets regularly. While the batting didn’t impress, it is likely to improve in this match. Both teams were playing their 1st match after the World Cup, and it could have been the break that got the batsmen off on timing and execution of shots. India has a strong top order, and if they get going, Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey can help the side reach a par total. India like Windies has batting till number 8, with 3 bowling all-rounders in the side. Given how spinners from both teams have performed at this surface, India is likely to include at least 2 of the bowling all-rounders for this match.

Our Prediction for West Indies vs India

India would win this match

India’s top order is more consistent and capable of making a comeback as compared to the Windies. Yet, one cannot count the Windies out, for they need one of their top-order batsmen to flourish on a given day, and could reach a big total. They have good finishers lower down the order, and that’s where they are slightly better than India. While India needs their top order to fire at the start for the middle order to build on the foundation, they could be in trouble chasing 160 plus and losing early wickets.

Toss would be crucial and team batting second would have an advantage. The surface seems like a double-edged sword and could also benefit the team batting first if they could get to a par total. Betting sites will have great odds on offer during in-play as the game is expected to be an exciting one.
