IND Vs WI Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Focus shifts to 50 over cricket as the two sides step out in the series opener starting today.
Winning the T20 series 2-1, India look to further extend their dominance over West Indies in the ODI format when the two sides go at loggerheads in the three match series starting today. Touted a overwhelming favourites to sweep their way to yet another thumping win, the Indians will held out today looking to emulate the same comprehensive display which saw them take the T20 clashes.
Precariously poised at 1-1 ahead of the culminating encounter, it wasn’t till the closing tie of the series that the clear difference between the two sides was exposed. What was a tantalising contested series up till now completely swung in India’s favour as the side sent the visitors packing for 173 in pursuit of 240, a gargantuan 240 win which was befitting of getting their hands around the trophy.
And come the ODIs today, the behemoths from Asia will be looking to reverberate the same pulsating display and take what would be a critical 1-0 lead in the series. Elsewhere for a hurting West Indies side, this match is going to be a massive test of their skill set, one where they’ll be asked to divulge deep into their repertoire of attributers and show they are more than just the ere pushovers India have made them out to be recently.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
An already treacherous wicket for the bats is only going to be left in further tatters given the clouds looming ominously over the surface. It’s something which will offer the side bowling first deviations for their pacers, leading the side winning the toss opting to come out and chase today despite the spinners envisioned to come into full effect come the second part of the tie.

IND Vs WI Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With Nicholas Pooran coming down the batting order and Pant struggling to muster up a meaningful display off late, Shai Hope was an undisputed selection for us. It was not the only factor which played out in his favour though with the wicket-keeper being someone capable of creaming the ball to the fence with ease and utilising the field restrictions he comes out to open in.
IND Vs WI Dream11 Batsmen
India’s man of the match from the T20 series with 183 runs in 3 matches, Virat Kohli is someone who was the first name on our mind for this forthcoming contest. The player is in imperious touch at the moment, someone who nous of abilities is bound to put the West Indian bowling unit to bed and see him herald his way to a neat performance.
Opener Rohit Sharma also joins him for the day despite the player not enduring the best of encounters at this surface with the bat scoring 71 runs in just 34 balls in the closing T20 encounter. Shreyas Iyer joins him as well for the day to see us rope in an entire trivalent from the home side for the day.
IND Vs WI Dream11 All-Rounders
We compensate for the picks from West Indies over here by getting in a duo of picks from the side for this one. We begin with Roston Chase, someone who thrived immensely against India previously and is bound to perturb the Indians with his brand of spin on this surface which will immensely aid him.
Jason Holder comes in to partner him up for the day whilst from India we are roping in Ravindra Jadeja, a player whose well rounded complete abilities will see him act as a pivotal figure in all the departments of the game for his side on the day.
IND Vs WI Dream11 Bowling Order
West Indies have traditionally faltered infront of spin and one they square off against Yuzvendra Chahal on a track which will open up and play out in his favour, the visiting side are bound to stumble and be left baffled on how to get under him, making the spinner our first choice here. Deepak Chahar comes in as well with the pacer se to fill in the void left by Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s injury in the side along with Mohammed Shami, someone who returned with 2-25 in the last T20.
Elsewhere, the one pick from West Indies as well for us with us deciding to venture in with Hayden Walsh to wrap up our set of picks for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kohli will be coming in as our side’s captain for the encounter while Sharma is our vice-captain.
