IND vs WI Dream11 team, Who will win India vs West Indies 2nd ODI Today Match Prediction February 9
Updated on: Feb 10, 2022 12:47 pm IST
IND vs WI Today Match Prediction: With a 1-0 lead in the 3-match ODIs, Rohit Sharma-captained India would now be looking to write off the series in the second one-dayer. Opting to bowl first, India dominated the visitors for the eternity of the first innings and bundled out the Caribbean side for a mere 176. The spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar picked up seven wickets amongst themselves to completely annihilate the rival line-up, but special credits to pacers Mohammed Siraj and Prasidh Krishna, for piercing through the opposition in the early and later stages respectively.
India, then chased down the tally with 6 wickets in hand and in a span of 28 overs, with skipper Rohit Sharma (60) and Ishan Kishan (28) bashing the bowlers up front, which was later followed by composed knocks from middle-order batters Suryakumar Yadav (34*) and Deepak Hooda (26*) to wind up the total. Though it’s all merry in the Indian tent, a lot’s at stake for West Indies, who’d be under immense pressure to level the series 1-1 at any expense in the upcoming feud.

IND vs WI Today Match Prediction
India doesn’t have anything to worry about for the one-dayers, but they’d look to put up their best show to seal the fate of the series in the upcoming duel. With KL Rahul and Rohit at the opening slot, and the likes of Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav and Deepak Hooda in the middle-order, the hosts should eye for a massive total, provided they don’t lose wickets in the initial stages and the middle-overs. Bowling-wise, spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar reaped benefits from the wicket at the offer. Paces Mohammed Siraj and Prasidh Krishna would be eyeing to render a menacing display as well.
For West Indies, batting has to be of the highest order and the onus would be on Shai Hope, Darren Bravo and Brandon King to ensure the same. Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard and Jason Holder are all experienced campaigners who’d be wishing to dish out match-winning shows. Pacer Alzarri Joseph would be backing himself to wreak havoc on yet another occasion, and a similar case could be expected from slow-left arm orthodox Akeal Hosein, who turned up with the most economical figure from their lot of bowlers.
All said and done, India’s still ahead of West Indies in terms of competency, for they have all their areas covered. And thus, as per the IND vs WI dream11 prediction, India have been dubbed as the favorite to win this match.
Who will win today’s IND vs WI match?
It’s not like West Indies are an easy team to beat in the limited-overs, because once on song, they could trouble even the best opposition with ease. However, Indian spinners got the better of the visitors by heavy margins in the last outing, and for the Caribbean side to lay a dominance, they have to have a solid show from the top-order trio of Shai Hope, Brandon King and Darren Bravo. Yes, they have the batting depth till No. 9 and pace options in Jason Holder and Alazarri Joseph, however, even India’s batting and bowling departments are far more competent to topple the Kieron Pollard & Co.
Bet 365: IND – 1.16, WI – 5.50
India vs West Indies 2nd ODI Dream11 Team & Playing 11 for Today’s Match
IND Playing 11 (likely)
Rohit Sharma (c)
Rishabh Pant (wk)
- Rohit Sharma’s obviously going to be a must-see player from the hosts in the much-coveted duel. The last match was a mere testimony of his greatness as a batter against the Caribbean lineup, for he top-scored with a 51-ball 60 that comprised 10 fours and a six.
|ODIs vs WI||Runs||Average||100s/50s|
- Virat Kohli’s likely to bounce back stronger in the second outing. Lightning doesn’t strike twice at the same spot, and the same applies to the No. 3 batter, who would be looking to get back to his routine scoring against the West Indies.
|ODIs vs WI||Runs||Average||100s/50s|
WI Playing 11 (likely)
Shai Hope (wk)
Kieron Pollard (c)
- Shai Hope is the fulcrum in the West Indies batting line-up and with the series at the line, it’s all the more vital for the opening batter to have a desirable day with the bat. He was dismissed cheaply for merely 8 runs in the first one-dayer, however, one must remember that he’s had some of his best performances in ODIs against the Indian line-up.
|ODIs vs IND||Runs||Average||100s/50s|
- Jason Holder, with his gritty 57, was a major positive for the visitors as they coast their way to 176 runs in the first one-dayer. The bowling all-rounder would have to be at the peak of his prowess in the second duel for the West Indies to at least render a tough fight to the Men in Blue.
Today match score: Toss is likely to play yet another major role in the upcoming duel. If India bats first, then they might cruise their way to a 270-280 run total. In case the Caribbean, then 200-220 to say the least, and hopefully, if they get decent partnerships then even a 250+ total.
Today pitch report: The wicket is likely to behave in a similar fashion as was visible in the last outing. Spinners from both teams had a good time in the previous match, and likely, they’d extend their dominance in this feud.
