India vs West Indies: Another Worthy Match that can amuse the Fanatics
A thrilling last ball match was observed between New Zealand and Pakistan yesterday in which Pakistan had a glorious victory over New Zealand that had not lost a single match in WC 2019. The match was spectacular and ran till the last over with Pakistan gaining a victory of 6 wickets. With yesterday’s victory, Pakistan kept its Semi Final Dreams alive with 7 points.
Today’s match is predicted to be the same being as India and West Indies both are strong teams. India did not yet face a defeat in the World Cup and is currently in the third position on the points table with 9 points. The team had gained spectacular victories over Australia, Pakistan, South Africa, and Afghanistan in previous matches. Its match against New Zealand was abandoned due to rain thereby reducing the total number of points by 1. India had completed 5 of the 9 scheduled matches and still has four matches to play.
The team is at its best shape with players like Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni, Kedhar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Mohammad Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja, etc. Shikhar Dhawan, one of India’s glorious openers who played a key role in its victory against Australia had succumbed to an injury and had to leave the tournament. KL Rahul who used to come to bat at No.4 is now opening alongside Rohit Sharma. One of the top Bowlers, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has also suffered a hamstring injury and had to stay away for 3 matches. The man had recovered but as of now, it is unclear when he would join the team. With its streak of victory seeing no immediate obstruction, India has a pretty good chance of winning the game today against West Indies.
West Indies is another great team that had opened the World Cup with a magnificent 7 wicket victory against Pakistan. It had suffered multiple defeats against teams like Australia, England, Bangladesh, and New Zealand in the tournament and stands at 8th position in the points table with 3 points. West Indies had played 6 matches so far (1 was abandoned due to rain) and still has 3 matches to play. The team comprises of brilliant players like Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Jason Holder, Shimron Hetmeyer, Carlos Braithwaite, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Oshane Thomas, etc.
West Indies won only one match in the 6 games it had played and the odds of it winning against India are quite low. Though given some of its performances in the matches, the team can be predicted as being quite capable of facing India and giving a tough competition. There is also a very good chance of West Indies team winning if India fumbles even a little.
