India (IND) square off against West Indies (WI) in the first ODI of the three-match series on Friday, July 22 at Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain. The match will start at 7:00 PM IST.
WI vs IND Dream11 prediction
Although the Indian cricket team is touring the West Indies without their seasoned players like Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah, they have enough firepower to dismantle a rather troubled Men in Maroon outfit, especially in ODIs. The Windies’ recent run of form in the 50-over format is underwhelming, to say the least.
Under the new leadership of Nicholas Pooran, West Indies head into the India series on the back of a 0-3 ODI defeat at hands of Bangladesh at home. Add India’s record of 11 wins and just two losses out of their last 15 ODIs against West Indies and even recent history puts the Men in Blue on top on Friday.
WI vs IND Dream11 team tips for 1st ODI
Top tip: Best batter
India’s top-order batter Deepak Hooda is enjoying a great run of form of late. The 27-year-old was exceptional against Ireland in the shortest format and will want to carry his form forward in 50-overs cricket. At just 8.5 credits, he remains an absolute steal.
Top tip: Best bowler
Selected by 84.03 per cent of fantasy users, India’s Yuzvendra Chahal is an outright pick for a bowler. The 31-year-old leggie has picked an impressive seven wickets in his last two ODIs and at 9.5 credits, he might seem like an expensive investment but given West Indies’ recent spin frailties, he should be one of the first names in your fantasy team.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Between Ravindra Jadeja and Jason Holder, we would advise you to pick the latter. Holder remains the smarter choice as the chances of him batting are higher than Jadeja’s. While his bowling credentials need no introduction, he might give you some bonus points with his batting.
For a wicket-keeper, India’s Ishan Kishan is an ideal pick. The opening batter had been in explosive form of late and at just 8.5 credits, remains the best option to go with for the gloveman spot in your fantasy team.
WI vs IND probable playing XI
WI playing XI (probable): Nicholas Pooran (captain and wicket-keeper), Shai Hope, Brandon King, Shamarh Brooks, Rovman Powell, Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder, Keemo Paul, Akeal Hosein, Gudakesh Motie, Alzarri Joseph
IND playing XI (probable): Shikhar Dhawan (captain), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (wicket-keeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Hooda, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal
