IND vs WI Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview: 1st T20
India and West Indies will face off in the first T20I at Lauderhill in Florida to commence the tour. We will provide IND vs WI Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the match.
After a disappointing end to World Cup campaign in semi-finale, Team India will lock horns with Windies. India has rested regular players like Hardik, Bumrah, Chahal, and Kuldeep and has given a chance to some potential debutants like Rahul Chahar and Navdeep Saini. Manish Pandey and Shreyas Iyer also get another opportunity in the middle order. Along with that, Shikhar Dhawan also returns from World Cup injury. India will hope to get some early momentum in the tour defeating West Indies in the first T20I.
West Indies will miss the services of their key players such as Chris Gayle and Andre Russell with the latter ruled out for first two matches due to injury. The onus will be on Evin Lewis, Pollard, Pooran and Hetmyer to score plenty of runs for the team. Brathwaite, Narine, Cottrell, and Thomas will lead the bowling attack of Windies against the mighty Indian side. They will hope to exploit the small dimensions of the ground at Lauderhill and give a tough challenge to India.
