West Indies vs. India | Match Prediction, Betting Tip & Odds
The West Indies and India meet in the final ODI match of the series on Wednesday, with the visitors coming into the game leading 1-0. With both matches to date having been effected by weather conditions, the hosts will be looking to end a hugely disappointing run of form, which dates back to the summer’s World Cup in England.
Initial Situation for the Game West Indies vs. India
India secured victory on Sunday by a margin of 59 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis method, with star man Virat Kohli scoring a crucial 120 runs. Another win would mean that India will have won both the T20 and ODI series’ against the Windies, ahead of the upcoming Test matches between the two nations. The home side know that they must improve significantly if they are to have any chance, with Evin Lewis having once again been their leading run scorer last time out. 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 pressure is mounting on the West Indies, with their latest defeat meaning that they have not one a cricket match in any form of the game since their final encounter at the World Cup in June. Having delayed his retirement in order to be part of the current series, Chris Gayle has struggled with the bat throughout the series, while the Windies bowlers have also failed to deliver on a consistent basis against an in-form Indian side.
India have bounced back from their disappointing World Cup semi-final defeat at the hands of New Zealand in the best possible way, winning all three T20 games against the West Indies, before opening up a 1-0 advantage in their ODI series against the men in maroon too. The likes of Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer have all performed admirably during the tour so far, with the latter scoring 71 from just 68 balls in helping his side to victory last time around.
Latest Team News
Having once again failed to make the most of their potential, the West Indies could make changes to their team for Wednesday’s final One-Day match, while opponents India are expected to name an unchanged side, in an attempt to maintain their momentum on tour.
India’s win via the Duckworth-Lewis method over the weekend means that they are now unbeaten in their last five ODI matches against the West Indies. India defeated the Windies by 125 runs during the 2019 World Cup at Old Trafford back in June, with the last success for the West Indies coming in Pune back in October 2018. In fact, the Windies have won just two of their last ten one-day matches against India, with their recent form not suggesting that they will turn things around on Wednesday. If the head-to-head record between the two nations is to go by, it is India who are the firm favourites to win the final match of the series this week.
