West Indies slipped off the radar after demolishing Pakistan in the opening game of the World Cup and now they are on the verge of falling off the cliff.
In the 34th fixture of ICC World Cup 2019, West Indies would come against India and would try to break the Indian streak which seems to be almost impossible because of their performance.
This match is scheduled to be played at Old Trafford, Manchester on Thursday.
India recently played their last match against Afghanistan and it took them all their efforts to stop Afghans from tasting the glory. India would have prepared themselves well against the giant Windies. At present, India is on the 3rd position with 11 points in their pockets.
Meanwhile, West Indies is on the 8th spot with just three points.

Sheldon Cottrell: This pace bowler from West Indies could play as an X-factor as he has been producing some impressive performance with the ball. In the match against New Zealand, he picked the openers in the first over and finished with 4/56.
