IND vs WI Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match
Kolkata, November 04 at 07:00 PM IST
India registered their eight consecutive bilateral series win against Windies in the One Day Internationals, beating the touring side 3-1. The margin of victories in the last two games suggests that the difference between the two sides is massive.
The hosts are going in with several changes to their T20I squad, with Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni being the most notable absentees. However, they have enough firepower to see Windies off.
Windies are in the doldrums and come into the shorter format after back-to-back humiliations. If we leave the contributions from Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope and Jason Holder aside, no other Windies player stood up in the recently concluded ODI series.
The shorter format gives them a better chance, also the change in personnel with the likes of Carlos Brathwaite and Kieron Pollard in their ranks. Also, Windies can draw inspiration from the World T20 Final 2016 triumph at the venue.

Pitch and venue stats
The first of three T20Is, at Kolkata’s iconic Eden Gardens, promises to be a run-fest. However, the spinner might be able to extract something off the surface.

The last time a T20 international was played here (2 & half years ago) four sixes came off the last four balls of the match.
