West Indies vs. India | Match Prediction, Betting Tip & Odds
Following their recent T20 series, the West Indies and India meet in the first of three ODI matches on Thursday, with the hosts looking to return to winning ways after a disappointing run of results of late. However, with India being found at No.2 in the world rankings, it promises to be an entertaining encounter.
Initial Situation for the Game West Indies vs. India
The West Indies and India meet at the Providence Stadium on Thursday, in what is the first game of the three-match ODI Series between the two teams. India will be on a high following their T20 series victory, with the men in Blue looking to recover from their World Cup semi-final defeat against New Zealand in Guyana. With a large number of bets expected to be placed on the match, let’s take a closer look at the two teams, including their player availability and recent form, starting with the West Indies.
West Indies Form
The West Indies are in one of their worst runs of form in recent times of late, having won just two of their nine encounters at the recent 2019 World Cup, a record which saw them finish second from bottom in the standings. With the future of opener Chris Gayle still up in the air, with the 39-year-old having reportedly postponed his retirement in order to play against India, the West Indies will be looking for some of their younger players to step up to the mark, starting at the Providence Stadium.
As for the touring side, India will be looking to continue their impressive form in the Caribbean so far this summer, with their playing squad and standing in the ODI world rankings suggesting that it could well be another successful series. The likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Mohammed Shami are among the standout players for India, with all having impressed in helping India reach the World Cup semi-finals in India just a matter of weeks ago.
Latest Team News
The West Indies are likely to make changes to their team following their disappointing T20 series defeat against India, with exciting youngster Keemo Paul potentially making his debut, having been a reserve player for the 2019 World Cup. As for India, Delhi Capitals batsmen Shreyas Iyer is pushing for a recall.
India have now won their last three ODI matches against the West Indies, a run which includes their 125-run success at Old Trafford during the recent World Cup in England. In fact, the Windies have won just two of their last ten one-day matches against India, with their last victory coming in Pune back in October 2018. If the head-to-head record between the two nations is to go by, it is India who are the favourites on Thursday.
