IND vs WI Dream11 Team | India vs West Indies | 2019 Cricket World Cup Match Prediction

By Savya Sachi

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.

IND vs WI Dream11 Team Prediction
Fantasy picks from India:
Rohit Sharma has scored 320 runs in four innings at an average of 9496. He could be the best choice as the captain as he holds an average of 64.16 against West Indies.
Hardik Pandya has scored 96 runs in 4 innings as a middle order batsman. He could be your pick as he gives a perfect balance in the middle order. Apart from scoring runs, he has bagged four wickets in four matches.
Mohammad Shami is coming after a hat-trick and would be high on confidence. This match could destroy the top order with his different variations in the initial overs. He has bagged four wickets in one game.
Fantasy picks from West Indies:
Shimron Hetmyer must be in your fantasy team. We remember when he slammed 259 runs in 5 matches at an average of 51.8. So far in this world cup, he has scored 171 runs in 5 innings at an average of 42.75.
You can choose Chris Gayle as he has played a lot with Indian players and know their strategies. He has scored almost 100 runs against India with four centuries and five half-centuries. He has scored 194 runs at an average of 38.8 in the World Cup and is expected to keep it up. Don’t miss him out.
Oshane Thomas has bagged 7 wickets in six matches for West Indies and he could keep it tight to trouble the Indian Batsmen. You can rely on him.
Captain and Vice-captain: S Hope & S Hetmyer

Captain and Vice-Captain: V Kohli & H Pandya
