After India won the T20I series 3-0 by winning the last match by seven wickets, it is now time for the ODI series. There will be some new players coming into the ranks for India and West Indies and the impact they have will be crucial in changing the dynamics between the two teams. This series consists of 3 ODI starting from 8th August at Providence stadium Guyana. Let’s Discuss IND vs WI Dream11 and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
Match Preview: India vs West Indies 1st ODI
Date: 08th Aug, 2019
Time: 07:00 PM IST
Venue: Providence Stadium, Guyana
Pitch Report: Expect a hard track which will have plenty of runs to offer. Conditions are expected to remain overcast. In the final T20I, this pitch showed good assistance to pace bowlers especially Deepak Chahar so seamer would be crucial in this match.
IND vs WI Squad
India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Shreyas Iyer, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Lokesh Rahul, Manish Pandey, K Khaleel Ahmed, Navdeep Saini
West Indies: Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle, Shai Hope(w), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder(c), Roston Chase, Carlos Brathwaite, Keemo Paul, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, John Campbell, Fabian Allen, Kemar Roach
IND vs WI Fantasy Tips and Prediction:
India: The top three in Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli will remain the same as T20I. One of KL Rahul or Shreyas Iyer is expected to be tried and given a long rope at number four. In the worldcup, KL Rahul took that spot and scored some decent runs so expect him in ahead of Shreyas Iyer. In the absence of MS Dhoni, Rishabh Pant will be India’s keeper-batsman. The Indian team has shown a lot of faith in Rishabh Pant and he delivered in the last T20I so expect him to deliver the goods at 5. Mohammed Shami will be back in the team and is likely to play along with either of Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Navdeep Saini. Bhuvneshwar will get a nod ahead against Navdeep Saini in the initial games. Spin twins Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzi Chahal will be back in the squad. The X factor for this team would be Rohit Sharma as he is coming off from 5 hundred in the WorldCup and good runs in T20I. Kuldeep Yadav took 9 wickets in 3 matches last time when he played against them.
Probable XI: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer/Manish Pandey, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar/Navdeep Saini
West Indies: After the loss in T20I and abysmal Worldcup, West Indies starts fresh in this ODI series. They will be boosted by the welcome of Universe Boss Chris Gayle who will be back in the opening slot along with Evin Lewis. The arrival of Gayle would solve the opening woes for the windies. Along with him, their most consistent batsman Shai Hope (who was left out of T20I) will be back in the squad at taking the No.3 spot following Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran. Roston Chase is an interesting inclusion in the squad, his inclusion would bring stability in the middle order. After that Captain and allrounder, Jason Holder would come in following Carlos Braithwaite. In the bowling department Cottrell, Thomas, and Kemar Roach would lead the pace attack. This team looks threating on paper but they are not able to deliver on a consistent basis which is hurting West Indies cricket. The X factor and the Dream11 player to watch out would be Shai Hope. He holds the team together and has a decent average against India.
Probable XI: Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Roston Chase, Jason Holder (c), Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Kemar Roach

India is currently No.2 ranking team while West Indies are at 9th Position so this is no brainer that India has the upper hand but Windies are unpredictable and the ICC ranking doesn’t define the cricket they would play their day.
