Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction for India v Windies 4th ODI
With India and Windies level at 1-1 and two matches still to go, the series is still wide open.
Windies stunned India in the last game at Pune. Although they lost wickets at regular intervals, courtesy of Shai Hope in the middle order, who who was dismissed just five runs shy of what would have been his second consecutive century, and then the lower order contributions from Jason Holder and Ashley Nurse ensured that the team posted a respectable 283-run total on the board.
India's innings did not start well after Obed McCoy drew first blood in the form of Rohit Sharma. Despite Virat Kohli's third hundred in three ODIs, he did not get enough support from other batsmen as India fell short by a massive margin of 43 runs.
Kedar Jadhav has regained fitness and is set to return in the 4th ODI. It would be interesting to see that who is dropped in his place.
Rishabh Pant looks like the only option as dropping a bowler would further deteriorate the bowling acumen and dropping MS Dhoni or Ambati Rayudu does not look like a probable option. This will give a better balance to the Indian side.
Windies would also look to give their middle order some solidity as apart from Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer, no one from the middle-order has been able to leave a mark.
Here's a look at the predicted playing XI of both teams.
India - Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal
Windies - Kieran Powell, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, Marlon Samuels, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach, Obed McCoy
