Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions - ICC Cricket World Cup - West Indies v India - PrePlay
Match number 34 of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup will be played between West Indies and India at the Old Trafford in Manchester.
West Indies may be with just one win from six matches and may have suffered four losses and have just three points, but they still remain a force to reckon with. The way they played against Australia and then more recently against New Zealand showed that they are capable of beating any team. What they have lacked is consistency and this is what has led to their downfall.
India are unbeaten in the tournament till now and are at the third place in the points table, with four wins and one rained-of match from five games and are with nine points.
India and West Indies have clashed a total of 126 times in ODIs and the latter lead with 62 wins as compared to India's 59, but that is more the representation of their glorious past. The Men in Maroon have hardly won matches against India in recent times. The last time both teams faced each other was during the West Indies tour of India, when India beat them 3-1 in a five-match ODI series.
In the last five matches that West Indies have played, they have lost four games, while one match has been rained-off. Contrary to this, India have won four matches out of their last five, with their match against New Zealand being abandoned.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
West Indies- Chris Gayle, Shai Hope (wk), Sunil Ambris, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder (c), Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas
India- Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (c), Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal
