India will win

West Indies – India Match Prediction | 19-08-2019

They defended the target of 225 runs. Mohammed Shami, who got his first chance to play a World Cup match after the injury of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, had an excellent spell with the ball. He got four wickets in his 9.5 overs bowled against just 40 runs. They also played a key role in their most recent win over Afghanistan. Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Hardik Pandya got two wickets each in this match while Kuldeep Yadav remained wicketless even after bowling ten overs. He had a hat-trick of wickets in this match and with this, he becomes the second Indian player who had a hat trick in World Cup. The bowling unit of India side had performed well in this World Cup.

Team India had performed well in all previous matches they had played. Kedar Jadhav scored 52 runs while Lokesh Rahul scored 30 runs. They won their most recent match against Afghanistan with the margin of just eleven runs. They are still an unbeaten team in this World Cup. The skipper, Virat Kohli was the highest runs scorer from their side with 67 runs in his account. We know that India had a strong batting order in the world but in this match, they could not perform well as they could manage to score 224 runs in their fifty overs. They had played five matches so far with four wins while their one match was abandoned without toss due to rain. They won the toss and decided to bat first. No other batsmen from their side could manage to score some big runs on the board.

Toss Prediction in Today Match Prediction

We would prefer to have more bowlers if India is bowling first because the batsmen may not have enough to do. The trick is going to be to get the right set of Indians in the side. Remember as always to follow us on twitter (@cricketbettings) for the latest updates to our Dream11 prediction for India vs West Indies ICC World Cup 2019. Dream11 team for India vs West Indies ICC World Cup 2019 is going to have the maximum possible Indians. In case, India bats first, a more balanced mix is desirable. Injuries and possible team changes also need to be taken into consideration.

Chris Gayle showed some of his best form last time out, and a repeat of that would make him worth selecting too, but he is inconsistent and a big gamble at 9.5 credits. If you want to afford Kohli and Sharma, a cheaper West Indian batsman like new call-up Sunil Ambris could be better value. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma simply have to be selected, regardless of price, and KL Rahuls promotion up the order makes him worth picking up at 8.5 credits too.

Chris Gayle will stay in Canada, however, and instead wait until the ODI series. Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard have been recalled to West Indies T20i squad with both set to leave the Global T20 Canada to link up with the national team. Uncapped wicket-keeper-batsman Anthony Bramble is in the squad but likely to play second fiddle to Nicholas Pooran, while Andre Russell faces a fitness test on his knee injury.

Vijay Shankar Out of World Cup 2019 due to injury

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been spectacular with his change in pace of late. He trapped Evin Lewis in the first T20I with a knuckleball, and on Sunday, his superior skills fetched him his fourth four-wicket haul. In addition, his fielding skills are getting better day by day: the diving catch off his own bowling to dismiss Roston Chase was the highlight of the match.

The rain in the islands can be frequent but also clears away quickly so hopefully, there should be no loss of overs. There is a 30-re is a 30-40% chance of rain predicted in Guyana on match day and that is not a good sign. West Indies vs India 3rd T20 2019 is going to be played at the Providence Stadium, Guyana.

Both India and West Indies have won five T20matches each in 11 previous meetings in the format. Three of Indias wins came when they last played each other, when they were in totally dominant form on their way to a 3-0 series win. When they last met in Florida, however, West Indies posted 245/6 (Evin Lewis scoring 100) and, despite Lokesh Rahuls rapid century, India finished just one run short on 244/4.

About the Match

Washington Sunder and Deepak Chahar have been recalled to the T20i squad, meanwhile. MS Dhoni will miss the tour of West Indies and the United States as he is serving with the Territorial Army instead. Shikhar Dhawan is fit again. With the 38-year-old unavailable, Rishabh Pant will be behind the stumps instead. Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya are being rested for the limited-overs matches. After impressing in the IPL, Rahul Chahar could be in line for a debut, as could Navdeep Saini.

India has won the T20 series against the West Indies but it is only now that the team is going to travel to the Caribbean. The first two matches of Indias tour to West Indies 2019 were played in Florida I conditions that were far better for the visitors than they were for the hosts. Now, the action shifts to Guyana for the last T20 international between West Indies and India.

That does not really leave enough credits for Shikhar Dhawan too, but KL Rahul who scored a century when he last played in Florida and Evin Lewis, who did likewise, are lower-cost options. Nevertheless, leaving Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma out would be a huge gamble and both should be picked. As ever, the very best players come at a very big cost.

WI vs IND Dream11 Prediction

Sheldon Cottrell has been the best West Indian bowler and so having him in the team is a straightforward choice as well. They are going to be targetted by the West Indian big-hitters and that will provide opportunities to garner plenty of Dream11 points for us. The spinners for India have been very effective at picking up wickets. Bowlers: Sheldon Cottrell, Yuzvebdra Chahal, and Kuldeep Yadav are three bowlers we like for this match.

Shimron Hetmyer also batted well as he scored 54 runs. The batting order of West Indies side performed well in this match but they could not chase the target of 292 runs. The way how Carlos Brathwaite batted in last overs, was just outstanding. He scored 101 runs while he faced 82 balls. Chris Gayle was the second highest run scorer from their side who scored 87 runs. After the half of their batting inning, they were in a good position to win this match but they lost their key wickets of Shimron Hetmyer and Chris Gayle who were batting well. Shai Hope, Nicholas Pooran, and Ashley Nurse could manage to score only one run while the skipper, Jason Holder, and Evin Lewis could not even open their account on the scoreboard.

Dhawan showed signs of getting into form and Rahul has been very good India in this format. Kieron Pollard is our favorite batsmen out of these and we think he is going to have a big impact on the game. Batsmen: We have picked Lokesh Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Shimron Hetmyer, and Kieron Pollard as the batsmen for our Dream11 team. Hetmyer is a bit of risk because he could be very dangerous if he opens the batting or be wasted down the order.
