WI vs IND Team Previews

West Indies

The hosts will be delighted with their performance in the opening fixture as they managed to defeat the top-ranked T20 team in the world and took an early lead in the 5-match series. The focus will now be on continuing with the winning momentum.

Brandon King teed off in style and scored 28 runs before he was scalped by Chahal. With runs under his belt. King will look to build upon his form and play a big inning in this match. The form of Kyle Mayer remains a bit of a concern as his poor form with the bat in the ODIs seems to have spilled over to the T20s too.

Nicholas Pooran on the other hand continued with his purple patch and scored a well-made 41 from 34 deliveries. Skipper Rovman Powell led the late charge and his 48-run inning was the key to taking the hosts to a respectable total. The West Indies will need to find a way to get around India’s potent spin attack during the middle overs.

The bowlers were outstanding as they held the fort against a strong Indian batting line-up. Akeal Hosein bowled a good spell early on to put the opposition under pressure, while Jason Holder and Romario Shepherd picked up 2 wickets each to derail the chase in the second half of the innings.

After pocketing the Test as well as the ODI series, perhaps the Indian team was a bit complacent during the last match and paid the price. They must now try and turn things around to negate the deficit.

The bowlers were up to the mark as they limited West Indies to a modest total. Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal were especially impressive as they picked up 3 wickets between them and gave away just 44 runs in their 7 overs together.

The seamers will need to be more disciplined with their line and length as they were quite expensive. The onus to perform better will also lie on the batsmen. While Ishan Kishan suffered a rare failure on this tour, his opening partner Shubhman Gill hasn’t been at his fluent best.

The same can be said about Hardik Pandya and Sanju Samson. Tilak Varma was very impressive, especially this being his debut match as he scored top-scored for India with 39 runs. He will once play an important role in the middle order along with Suryakumar Yadav.

India will need to sharpen its pace attack and also improve on its batting if they want to win.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Providence Stadium is well-balanced. There is some help for the seamers early on but the batsmen will be able to play the big shots once they get their eye in. The average first-inning score on this ground is around 160, which is a par score.

The weather is expected to remain warm and humid and we can expect some drizzling during the day.

    Highest score after first 6 overs

    India (1.61)


India has quite a few explosive batsmen at the top of the order, including Ishan Kishan, Shubhman Gill, and Suryakumar Yadav. On the other hand, Kyle Mayers and Johnson Charles aren’t in the best of forms. We are therefore backing India to put up a bigger score during the Powerplay.

  1. Bet365


    Nicholas Pooran Total Runs

    Over 21.5 (1.83)


Pooran is in red-hot form for the past few months. He has scored at least 23 runs in 5 of his last 6 innings. We, therefore, think that he will play another good inning in this match.

  1. 10CRIC


    Total Runs in Highest Scoring over of the Match

    Under 19.5 (2.00)


The pitch at the Providence Stadium isn’t the easiest to bat on and the bowlers will have a fair chance to tie up the batsmen. The average run rate on this ground is 7.32. We, therefore, think that the batsmen will find it difficult to take on the bowlers.
