IND vs WI Dream11 Team Prediction & Preview | Chris Gayle returns
India and West Indies will face off in the first ODI at Providence Stadium in Guyana. We will provide IND vs WI Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the match.
After a 3-0 victory in T20I series, Team India will enter ODI series with momentum on their side. The young guns fired for the team in the 20-over format. Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini, Washington Sundar and Krunal Pandya were the biggest positives from the series while Rishabh Pant proved his talent in the last T20I scoring unbeaten 65 from 42 balls. Skipper Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar continued their good form ahead. With the arrival of fiery pacer Mohammad Shami and spin twins Yuzendra Chahal and Kuldeep, Team India will hope to take an early lead in the ODI series defeating under-performing Windies team.
West Indies had a disappointing run in World Cup 2019 and continued the trend in T20I series. From batting department, Keiron Pollard and Rovman Powell were the only positives but will not be available in the one-day format. Sheldon Cottrell and Oshane Thomas were the star performers for Windies in T20I series taking four scalps each in three matches. On a brighter side, Chris Gayle returns to lead lacklustre batting order of Windies after twin centuries in Canada T20 league and will expect contributions from talented Shai Hope, Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer. Skipper Jason Holder will hope for a unison effort from their pace trio of Cottrell-Thomas-Roach to provide timely breakthroughs against Mighty India team.
