India and West Indies will face-off in the 34th match of World Cup 2019 at Old Trafford in Manchester. We will provide IND vs WI Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the match.
Team India is one of the strong contenders for World Cup’19 and has performed as per expectations. They have won all four of their encounters till now defeating South Africa, Australia, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. India’s top-order has been in brilliant form along with Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni while bowlers Bumrah, Shami, Kuldeep, and Chahal have also been phenomenal with the ball. They will be eager to defeat West Indies and confirm their spot in semi-finale.
In the previous encounter, They defeated Afghanistan by 11 runs. Batting first, Virat Kohli scored 67 while Kedar Jadhav scored 52 runs to take the team to a below-par total of 224. KL Rahul, Shankar, and Dhoni also got starts but failed to convert into a big knock. With the ball, Mohammad Shami took four wicket-haul including a hat-trick in last over while Bumrah, Chahal, and Pandya took two scalps each to successfully defend the low total.
West Indies have many memorable moments in WC’19 but have failed to win matches and are eighth on the points table with one win and four losses. They are unlikely to make it to the semi’s now but will be eager to upset the chances of other teams in remaining encounters. Injury to Andre Russell has further impacted their team combination. The onus will be on Chris Gayle, Pooran, Hetmyer, Holder, Brathwaite, and Cottrell to lead the team from the front and give a tough challenge to the might Indian team.
In the last encounter, They lost to New Zealand by 5 runs. Bowling first, Sheldon Cottrell was at his lethal best taking four scalps including two in first over to restrict Kiwis at 291. Carlos Brathwaite also took two scalps. In the chase, Chris Gayle and Shimron Hetmyer played good knocks of 87 and 54 respectively but did not get support from other batsmen. Carlos Brathwaite played one of the best innings of WC’19 scoring 101 runs in 82 balls but was ultimately left behind by 5 runs.
A good contest can be expected between both teams.
