WI vs USA Team Previews

West Indies

There’s a lot of talent on this West Indies squad, which is full of veteran players and up-and-comers ready to prove their worth. 25-year-old Keemo Paul is an allrounder that the Windies will certainly need to perform at his best, as he was excellent in the three-game series vs. U.A.E. Paul had one great bowling game with 3/34 and another with the bat, scoring 54 runs.

Captain Shai Hope is key to victory, as he has been excellent with the bat of late, averaging 58.57 and scoring 410 runs in his last 9 matches. Although he made only a total of 36 runs in the U.A.E series, he wasn’t really called upon to do too much, as the Windies swept the games easily.

Although Holder and Pooran are important batters, we’re interested to see what Brandon King is capable of, as he’s an extremely talented batsman who can turn the tide in important games. King has averaged 40.37 and made 323 runs in his last 8 matches.

Hosein and Joseph will likely carry the largest bowling burden, with Joseph being 26 years old and the eagerness to display his talents on the biggest stage. Joseph is lightning-quick and has taken 5/56 in the past, but he’s doing well right now by taking 13 wickets in his last 6 matches.

West Indies Playing 11

Kyle Mayers, Brandon King, Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Roston Chase, Keemo Paul, Alzarri Joseph.


The USA is not typically known as a great cricketing country, but a spot in the World Cup would do a lot to help its international image. There’s no doubt that Steven Taylor will be the most important player on the USA roster. He’s picked up 317 runs in his last 8 matches and is averaging 39.62, but is also productive when it matters. He scored 81 against Papua New Guinea and 79 against Jersey in the World Cup Play-offs, meaning that he can make big scores in do-or-die moments.

Top-order batter Aaron Jones is also someone we’re excited to see against the Windies, as he already has 1,338 runs in just 38 ODI innings. He made a high score of 123* against Scotland last year, and it’s this type of performance that USA will need again.

Nisarg Patel will be a key bowler, but Ali Khan is perhaps the player who can make the biggest impact. He’s a bit hit-or-miss, such as 7/32 against Jersey or 1/102 against Sri Lanka, but he’s still picking up wickets at a quick rate and is perfect for ODIs and T20s.

WI vs USA Toss Prediction

The results are quite balanced on this pitch, that it’s hard to tell what to do after winning the toss. 70 teams have won batting first in ODI games, while 77 have earned the victory batting second. It seems like bowling first is the better option.

Pitch and Conditions

The wicket is a tad slower than other pitches around the world, although the pace can pick up later in the game. This should help bowlers early on to work with different areas of the pitch.

WI vs USA Betting Tips

The Satbet odds are really generous for the USA to win, so by all means, bet on them if you feel like making a small flutter. However, the experience and talent on the West Indies roster is too big to ignore. USA struggles against anyone better than them, even if they can dispatch weaker opponents.

The likes of Hope, Joseph, King, and Hosein will ultimately prove too much for USA in an ODI game. There could be a chance for America in a T20 game, where anything can happen, but a 50-over match will favour the proficiency of the West Indies players. This is the first ODI between the two teams, but the Windies have such a long cricket history in general.

Bet on West Indies to win (but a small bet on USA is also okay).
