IND vs WI Dream11 : India vs West Indies Match Preview, Pitch Report, Probable Playing 11, Pivotal Players and Best Dream 11 Team for Today’s Match.
Yet again the Men in Blue will be fighting it out in a series decider when they meet West Indies in the 3rd and the deciding T20I at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday. The home team has managed to win most of their series deciders in the recent past. However, they will wary of the fact that their record after batting first is far from impressive. It was on the back of a Virat Kohli masterclass that India managed to win the opening clash with the utmost ease.
In the 2nd T20I, West Indies made light work of the target set by India and managed win at a canter. Now as we approach the deciding clash, it will be difficult to predict the winner. However, given the trend of the Indian team they will be backing themselves to win the match especially if they get an opportunity to chase. Windies have a lot of firepower in their line-up and will look to claim the series after horrendous performances in bilateral series in the recent past.
Pitch Conditions and Toss
The surface at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai has produced batting paradises in the past. The highest ODI score in India was put up by South Africa at this venue. In IPL matches too, it has been a high scoring venue. In the World T20 2016 clash between the two teams in the semi-final, it was the Windies who returned triumphant after heroics from Lendl Simmons and Andre Russell. The team winning the toss in all likelihood will look to bowl first.

IND vs WI Dream11 Wicket-keepers
Rishabh Pant is pocket-sized dynamite who is a powerful striker of the ball. He has looked in good touch in the series so far and has executed the big shots to perfection. Pant will look to make an impact in the deciding clash and is our first pick in the dream XI team.
IND vs WI Dream11 Batsmen
Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma will be the first two options in the batsmen category. Both of them has an exceptional record in this format. Kohli was at his sublime best during the opening clash and remained unbeaten on 94. Rohit Sharma had a poor outing in the first two matches but given his class and ability, a big score should be just around the corner.
Evin Lewis will be our 3rd pick in this category. The southpaw smashed a 17 balls 40 in the opening clash and followed it up with another 40 in the next clash. He is a powerful striker of the ball.
Shimron Hetmyer has been another player who has looked in great touch in the series so far. He scored a sensational half-century in the opening clash and followed it up with a 23 in the 2nd clash.
Lendl Simmons will be last pick in this segment. Like most West Indies batters, he is also a powerful striker of the ball and can score at a brisk pace. He scored a match-winning 67 in the 2nd T20I to ensure Windies managed to level the 3 match series.
IND vs WI Dream11 All-rounders
Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar will be the two all-rounders in our dream XI team. Promoted up the order, Shivam Dube announced his arrival in international cricket with a stroke-filled 54 of just 30 deliveries which included 4 big sixes. He also chips in with some crucial overs.
On the other hand, Washington Sundar is also an impressive all-round player. He bowls in the powerplays and also chips in with important wickets in the middle.
IND vs WI Dream11 Bowlers
Yuzvendra Chahal will be the first pick in this segment. He is a match-winner for India in the white-ball format and will look to leave a mark in the deciding clash. Chahal has been among wickets in this series as well.
Hayden Walsh will be the next pick in bowlers’ segment. He bowled quite brilliantly in the previous clash and bagged two crucial wickets to peg the hosts back. Walsh will look to spin his web around the Indian batsmen yet again.
The last pick in our dream XI team will be Sheldon Cotrell. He has been the best bowler for Windies in the series so far and has looked quite lethal. He bagged a wicket each in the first two matches.
Captain and Vice-Captain
Rohit Sharma will be the captain of the day while Evin Lewis will be the vice-captain of the day.
