West Indies vs. India | Match Prediction, Betting Tip & Odds
India travel to Jamaica for the final match of their tour of the West Indies, with the tourists hoping to maintain their unbeaten record over their struggling opponents. Having gone 1-0 up in the two-match Test series just last week, it will be the men in blue who are the favourites to claim another victory at Sabina Park.
Initial Situation for the Game West Indies vs. India
The West Indies host India in a Test match in Kingston this week, with the home side looking to finally register a win over their opponents, in what has so far been a disastrous summer for the men in maroon. India ran out winners of the opening Test match between the two sides by a massive margin of 318 runs, with the likes of Ajinkya Rahane and Captain Virat Kohli having put them to the sword with the bat in Antigua. As a result, it is India who are the firm favourites for victory with leading online bookmakers ahead of the opening ball being bowled, so let’s take a closer look at the two teams, along with some of the most appealing betting markets surrounding the match.
West Indies Form
The West Indies are on one of their worst runs of form in recent history, having failed to win a single game against India during their current tour. They were whitewashed in both the T20 and ODI series’, before being comfortably beaten in the opening Test last week. Roston Chase scored the most amount of runs in an innings with 48, demonstrating where their difficulties lie ahead of Friday’s toss.
Ajinkya Rahane scored a total of 183 runs over the two innings against the Windies last week, while he was well backed by the rest of the batting order, helping India to a comfortable victory. Elsewhere, bowler Jasprit Bumrah recorded figures of 5/7 off just eight overs in the West Indies second innings, helping India to bowl the hosts out for just 100. The majority of the India team is coming into the final match of the tour in good form, which is ominous news for the West Indies.
Latest Team News
The duo will both have the same playing squads as their opening Test, however the hosts are likely to make minor changes to their team, with Jahmar Hamilton and Rahkeem Cornwall pushing for starts for the Windies. India are likely to name the same team that fared so well last time around.
India’s victory in Antigua last week means that the West Indies have still not won a Test match against them since back in 2002. India are unbeaten in their last 22 Test matches against the Windies, while they are looking to make it back-to-back 2-0 series wins, following their success in October last year on home soil. The head-to-head record between the two teams certainly doesn’t make for pretty reading for the Windies, with India having won by 272 runs in Rajkot under 12 months ago.
West Indies vs. India Odds and Forecast:
Given their recent 3-0 T20 series win and 2-0 ODI victory over the West Indies, along with their opening Test victory, it comes as little surprise that it is India who are the favourites to come out on top again in their encounter starting this week. Those looking to back the tourists can take advantage of odds of 1.33 from bookmaker Bet365, whilst the West Indies are available at a price of 7.00 on the same platform ahead of the first ball being bowled. Elsewhere, with the possibility of a draw being heightened due to the potentially adverse weather conditions expected, this outcome can be backed at odds of 6.50 with Betway.
