IND vs WI Dream 11 Prediction
Wicket-keepers for IND vs WI Dream 11
My only wicket-keeper batsman for this match is West Indies’ Shai Hope. In 10 ODIs against India, Hope has scored 431 runs at an average of 53.87 and a strike rate of 74.31 including a century and three half-centuries. Him opening the batting gives him more chances of doing well as compared to India’s MS Dhoni who bats in the late middle-order.
Batsmen for IND vs WI Dream 11
Senior Indian duo of captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma is an automatic selection for any match including India. In 32 ODIs against West Indies, Kohli has scored 1,840 runs at an average of 70.76 and a strike rate of 96.63 including seven centuries and nine half-centuries. The same in association with Kohli scoring three half-centuries in four matches suggest that the Indian skipper might dictate terms tomorrow.
Talking about Sharma, he is India’s highest run-scorer in the tournament so far. In four ODIs, Sharma has scored 320 runs at an average of 106.66 and a strike rate of 94.95 including two centuries and a half-century.

A budget constraint made me pick Kedar Jadhav (8 credits) ahead of other batsmen who bat up the order. West Indies middle-order batsman Shimron Hetmyer is my only specialist batsman from their side. In five ODIs against India, Hetmyer has scored 259 runs at an average of 51.80 and a strike rate of 140 including a century and half-century each.
All-rounders for IND vs WI Dream 11
Star India all-rounder Hardik Pandya made it to my team on the basis of him having it in him to dominate in either of the innings. Much like Jadhav, I have picked Vijay Shankar because of a budget constraint. Having said that, an all-rounder like him in 8 credits might just become my budget buy for today.
West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite scoring his maiden ODI century in last match against New Zealand made me pick him over their captain Jason Holder. If Brathwaite plays in the same fashion, he should be able to fetch you significant points today.
Bowlers for IND vs WI Dream 11
Given the nature of West Indies’ batting lineup, India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is most likely to be among the wickets tomorrow. With West Indies batsmen expected to attack from the word go, don’t be surprised if Bumrah gets the better of them.
The reason I have picked Kuldeep Yadav over Yuzvendra Chahal is his better record against West Indies. In nine ODIs against West Indies, Yadav has dismissed 17 batsmen at an average of 19.82, an economy rate of 4.65 and a strike rate of 25.5.
Having picked nine wickets in six matches at an average of 25.55, an economy rate of 5.75 and a strike rate of 26.6, West Indies’s Sheldon Cottrell has been the pick of their bowlers in this tournament. With Indian batsmen susceptible against spinners, Cottrell might just run through their top-order if condition support him.
IND vs WI Fantain Prediction
As far as Fantain Prediction is concerned, I have decided to field the same playing XI. With the same bunch of players available in the given budget, I don’t want to make any forced change and would like to back the players mentioned above.
