IND vs WI Today Match Prediction: Post a forgettable tour of South Africa, the Indian cricket team will host the West Indies for 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is. The ODIs – which are to take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium behind closed doors – will mark Rohit Sharma’s first full-time assignment as the captain of the Men in Blue. Not to forget, the fans would be eager to see the duo of Rohit and former India skipper, Virat Kohli, batting alongside each other in what looks to be a series of cracking contests. As far as the visitors are concerned, the Kieron Pollard-led West Indies would be high on morale post their 3-2 win over the white-ball giants – England – in the recently concluded T20Is. The Caribbean side would be looking to marshall themselves with an even greater belief and possibly upset Rohit Sharma & Co.

IND vs WI Today Match Prediction
West Indies cricket team are known for their firepower and quite certainly, if a few of them decide to go bonkers from the very moment, then there’s only a little that the Indian bowling attack would be able to execute under such circumstances. Not to forget the visiting bowlers, for the likes of Jason Holder, Kieron Pollard, Akeal Hosein and Kemar Roach wouldn’t be leaving a stone unturned in troubling the Indian batters.
However, one must remember how clever and shrewd captain Rohit Sharma has been in his career, for he could very well make use of Kuldeep Yadav-Yuzvendra Chahal duo, and the competent pace trio in Mohammed Siraj, Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur to contain the Caribbean line-up. Not to forget, the presence of Virat Kohli among the core batters, a carnage-laying duo of Rishabh Pant and Ishan Kishan, and a composed Suryakumar Yadav in the middle-order, all of which could put India in the driver’s seat in the first matchup. As per IND vs WI dream11 prediction, India are the heavy favorite for this duel.
Who will win IND vs WI Today’s match?
Though the Indian cricket team would be missing out on the services of their key players, add to that, they conceded a white-wash defeat in the recent 3-match ODIs against the Protea, the Men in Blue could still be backed as the favorites for this match. Rohit Sharma-led India clearly has the edge in terms of the batting and bowling attack that they have to offer, plus, the experience of playing in these conditions in the past is something they’d look to exploit in the upcoming one-dayer.
Bet 365: IND – 1.25, WI – 4.00
India vs West Indies 1st ODI Dream11 Team & Playing 11 for Today’s Match
IND Playing 11 (likely)
Rohit Sharma (c)
Rishabh Pant (wk)
- Rohit Sharma has been a highly bankable player for Team India, whose performances with the willow has dictated the result on a number of occasions. He too enjoys a terrific record against the West Indies, with 1523 runs across 31 innings while averaging just over 60, which include a tally of 3 hundreds and 11 fifties, and he’d be hoping to smash his 30th ton in this outing to set the tone for the series.
- Virat Kohli would be raring to take on the Caribbean attack and perhaps, once in flow, get his hands onto the much-coveted hundred – 44th hundred in the ODIs – that has eluded him since the fag end of 2019. In the 39 encounters that he has had with the West Indies, Virat has garnered 2235 runs while averaging over 72 and striking 9 hundreds and 11 fifties.
WI Playing 11 (likely)
Shai Hope (wk)
- Shai Hope is one of those cricketers who’ve enjoyed taking on the Indian bowlers in the 50-over format. Across 17 matches, the right-hander has amassed 698 runs while averaging 53.31 with 2 hundreds and 4 fifties, and possibly, if he sets himself at the crease and gets going, then he could be a major nuisance for the hosts in the first one-dayer.
- Nicholas Pooran’s one of the promising talents for the Caribbean cricket team. He’s someone who could be a force to deal with if not dealt early on in the contest. He too loves batting against India, for the southpaw averages 72.25 from 6 innings and clobbered close to 290 runs while striking in excess of 120.
Today match score: Batters would have to toil hard to get the runs incoming at regular intervals. A score around 260-270 could be anticipated as a fighting total on this occasion.
Today pitch report: The wicket is likely to get slower as the match progresses and the past match statistics at this venue are a testimony to the same, for the average first innings total – 242 – falls to 212 in the second innings.
