Virat Kohli is back and will be leading the side once more after missing the Asia Cup. That also means that the number three position in the batting order is now filled.
Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, and Virat Kohli are India’s top-3 heading into the World Cup 2019 and there is not a top-order in the world that is more impressive. These three players are legends of the ODI game and if any two out of them have a decent game, then India is more than likely to win the match.
The biggest challenge for the West Indies is going to be getting past three players. Flat pitches and a hunger for runs mean that all three players are going to have another good series. We would back every one of them to score a century in each game.
We think Ambati Rayadu has done enough to make the number 4 slot his own. He averages over 50 in ODI cricket and continues to score runs every time he has been given a chance. His struggles with the yo-yo test are also behind him so expect him to get a longer run as well.
Now for 5, 6, and 7.
M.S. Dhoni should keep the number 5 slot. His experience and strike rotation make him a more than useful ODI player.
In the absence of Kedar Jadhav at 6, will Manish Pandey finally get a go? Or will the team look at Rishab Pant as the attacking option? We think both players will find some time in the middle sooner or later but Pandey will get first preference.
Number 7 is Hardik Pandya’s place, the management must ask if Jadeja fits in there. Both in terms of batting and bowling ability. We believe there is a place for Jadeja in the side as an all-rounder who can add balance to the side.
Mohammad Shami, Umesh Yadav, Khaleel, and Kuldeep Yadav round out the playing eleven. India could decide to play Chahal instead of Jadeja or one of the pacers but that could affect the balance of the side.
The West Indies has had a terrible time in ODI cricket over the last few years. The team had to play a qualification series, which it ended up just scraping through.
Over the last few months, we are cautiously optimistic about the future of West Indian ODI cricket. Chris Gayle, not playing this series, is very much in the mix of the ODI’s and some of the big T20 freelance stars like Andre Russell have expressed their desire to build up the World Cup as well.
The second and more important factor is the emergence of some talented youngsters in this year’s CPL. We are talking about the likes of Oshane Thomas, Obed McCoy, and Fabien Allen.
Rovman Powell is also a much better cricketer than he was a few years ago and we think he could be a vital player for the West Indies in this series in the absence of Andre Russell.
Kieron Powell will replace Evin Lewis, who pulled out at the last minute. Powell looked good in the test matches and it will be interesting to see how he fares in the ODI considering his poor record.
His role is going to be very crucial because the West Indies does not have too many batsmen that can actually play for the duration of a fifty over innings.
Kieron Powell, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, and Marlon Samuels are going to be the heart of the West Indian batting side. Samuels has always had a lot of success against India.
The middle order of Rovman Powell, Jason holder, and Fabien Allen should help add a lot of balance and power to the side as well. We expect to see Oshane Thomas, Obed McCoy, Kemar Roach, and Ashley Nurse make the cut. Devendra Bishoo will also be under serious consideration if the wicket looks a little tacky.
This is definitely not the worst West Indies ODI team and we are really hoping to see them put up a good show.
INDIA VS WEST INDIES TOSS PREDICTION
The team winning the toss will bat first.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
A clear day with a chance of rain has been forecast for match day. The pitch in Guwahati is flat and excellent for batting. The wrist spinners will always get a little purchase off the surface.
A score of 300 will be seen in India vs West Indies match, particularly if India bats first.
The last two decades of cricket between India and West Indies have been hopelessly one-sided. India is favorite one in this match. The West Indies has nothing to lose. A good, competitive start from the West Indies will bring this series alive.
We have no choice but to back India heavily even though there is very little betting opportunity there.
