Cricket Match Preview:

Port of Spain evokes mixed emotions among Indian cricket fans. It was here that India lost their first cricket game against Bangladesh in 2007 World Cup which led to their eventual ouster and it was here that MS Dhoni played one of his greatest knocks in the final of Tri-series against Sri Lanka. We are here again, and it remains to be seen which of these 22 men owns the day/night.

Only a handful of players remain for India since that thrilling 2013 game of cricket. Virat Kohli was the captain back then for the entire league stage due to the injury to Dhoni. Now, he is the full-time skipper and has a chance to prepare the team from scratch for the entire duration of four years till 2023 cricket World Cup. He has already put his foot forward by including the likes of Navdeep Saini and Shreyas Iyer in the squad.

West Indies have also begun looking ahead. They have a chance to test John Campbell to see if he is an able replacement for Chris Gayle, who is playing his last cricket series. Apart from that spot, West Indies largely have a squad which has already played in World Cup and by the time the next tournament comes, they would have gained invaluable experiences.

West Indies had a good home ODI cricket series against England before going out for the World Cup. The pitches in that cricket series were generally flat except for the final ODI, where England were completely decimated by West Indies’ bowlers. If the pitches are similar to those ODIs, then we are in for a run feast, with the scores of 300 plus set to be breached. 

Cricket Match Information:

West Indies will take on India in the second ODI international cricket game of the three-match cricket series. This ODI will be played at Trinidad. India have already won the T20 cricket series and would like to seal the ODI cricket series at Trinidad itself.    

India

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

India are being led by Virat Kohli on this tour. They have included a couple of new faces in the squad but it is largely the same squad with a notable omission of MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Shreyas Iyer in the playing eleven.

Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:

  • Rohit Sharma
  • Shikhar Dhawan
  • Virat Kohli
  • Shreyas Iyer
  • Rishabh Pant
  • Ravindra Jadeja
  • Bhuvaneshwar Kumar
  • Mohammad Shami
  • Khaleel Ahmed
  • Yuzvendra Chahal
  • Kuldeep Yadav

West Indies

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

West Indies are going to be led by Jason Holder in the ODI cricket series. It is going to be the last cricket series for Chris Gayle. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played their last game in the World Cup.

Here is our prediction of West Indies’ playing XI:

  • Evin Lewis
  • Chris Gayle
  • Shimron Hetmyer
  • Shai Hope
  • Carlos Brathwaite
  • Keemo Paul
  • Oshane Thomas
  • Nicholas Pooran
  • Sheldon Cottrell
  • Jason Holder
  • Kemar Roach

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

If Shreyas Iyerhe gets the chance, he will be eager to show his mettle. He had played some good innings for India in the absence of Virat Kohli but did not get the chance post his return. He would like to solve the number four problem of India’s batting and seal his spot at the same time. Our prediction is of a good performance from him if he gets the chance.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international ODI cricket match was played here in 2017 between West Indies and India. India won that game after scoring 310 runs while batting first. Our prediction is of the score of around 300 in this cricket game. Conditions are expected to be good for cricket. 

Our Prediction:

India will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They have had a good record against the West Indies over the years. Hence, going by the current form and overall record, our prediction is of India’s victory.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Rohit Sharma (IND) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Mohammad Shami (IND) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Rohit Sharma (IND)
