IN-A vs WI-A Dream11 Team Prediction: India A will look to take an unassailable lead in the three-match unofficial test series.
India A’s visit of West Indies has turned out to be an extremely fruitful one for the side. After they ended up decimating the home side 4-1 in the ODI series, the Indian side carried on the momentum garnered in the 50 over format as they turned to the red ball format.
Akin to the ODIs, the first test match of the three match series ended up playing in similar fashion with India dominating the match from first session to last. As the hosts’ flabbergasting run in front of the slower stuff failed to seize, Shahbaz Nadeem ended up snaring 10 wickets in the match as West Indies folded out for 228 and 180 in their two innings in a match where they batted first.
And chasing a petty target of 97 after taking an 84-run lead in the first innings, India A ended up cruising to a 6 wicket win in their pursuit of a target which was never going to perturb them. It’s that clinical performance the India A side will be looking to emulate when they take on West Indies A in the second match of the series starting today as they head out in pursuit of sealing the series in their favour.
IN-A vs WI-A Dream11 Team Prediction
Sitting on the cusp of yet another series triumph over West Indies A, the Indian outfit has only gone onto further strengthen its rank with the inclusion of international names into their playing 11 for this match. Opener Mayank Aggarwal and pacer Umesh Yadav will be out on the field for India today, further adding to West Indies’ trouble who have already found it tough to negotiate the Indian setup.
Expect this to be another win for the Indian side with West Indies’ batsmen lacking the technique and application to craft out well constructed test innings. India should run riot through their batting order yet again with their batsmen perfectly complimenting the bowlers.
Pitch Conditions and Toss
A sluggish pitch is expected to be doled out for this encounter, one where the batsmen should be able to go on and construct big innings once they have found their footing in the middle. Expect the opening two days to offer purchase to the faster bowlers before the surface eventually slows down and starts breaking up to work in favour of the spinners. Batting first on this surface is the ideal way to go about this test match.
Probable Playing 11
India A have confirmed that Mayank Aggarwal and Umesh Yadav will be a part of their playing 11 for this match.
West Indies A
Shamarh Brooks (c), Montcin Hodge, Sunil Ambris, Roston Chase, Jermaine Blackwood, Raymon Reifer, Jahmar Hamilton (wk), Rahkeem Cornwall, Jomel Warrican, Miguel Cummins, Chemar Holder

Dream 11 Picks
With us needing to select four West Indian players for this encounter, we are going to start with their wicker-keeper. Although he failed miserably with the bat the last time around, Jahmar Hamilton is someone who is bestowed with a unique skill set, someone who is aware of what it takes to succeed in the longest format of the game.

With opener Mayank Aggarwal being brought into the Indian side for this match, we are going to bring him into our side as the first player from the Indian team. He had a good series of Australia with the man Indian setup, scoring some good runs after he was brought on to replace KL Rahul in the opening slot and should get good runs in both the innings here as well.
Shubhman Gill is our second pick from India A after he managed to score 40 runs in the first innings. Having been spurned by the main Indian side, the player will know he has to score big in this series if he’s to catch the eye of the Indian selectors and keep his name in contention for being included in future series.
Hanuma Vihari (31) and opener Priyank Panchal (49) in the opening innings also find a place in our side for this one with us expecting India to pile on the runs in their first innings of this encounter.
From West Indies we are going to be brining in Jermaine Blackwood for this one after he showed resilience, grit and patience in the face of adversary as wickets kept tumbling at the other end.
Putting on a 124 run stand for the sixth wicket in the first innings, a critical stand which saw India take a vital lead in the encounter, Shivam Dube is included in our side for this match. He went onto score 71 which included 7 fours and 4 sixes and given the fact that he’s bound to get overs with the ball as well, he holds the identity of an all-rounder we set out in pursuit on when building our Dream 11 side.
From West Indies we are roping in Rakheem Cornwall, a player who has impressed us the most from the side ever since the ODI series. Perfectly encapsulating his skill set with both the bat and ball, the player has emerged as the finest all-rounder from his side over the course of the last month and we see him stepping up to the mantle yet again.
Brought into the side for this one, pacer Umesh Yadav from India is selected for this one. He ended up picking 10 wickets against West Indies when they came to India last year in a test match and against way more inferior batsmen, he is bound to get a good amount of wickets yet again.
With 10 wickets in the first match of this series, legspinner Shahbaz Nadeem is our pick for this one. The pitches doled out till now have been of the slower variety, tracks which have offered massive spin and guile and we see the bowler massive troubling the West Indian batsmen who have failed to understand the turning variety.
Chemar Holder from West Indies will be completing our Dream 11 side for this match.
