West Indies – Keys To Success In T20 Series

Play Aggressive

The West Indies need two or three of their batters to go after the Indian spinners and not let them settle down. The West Indies tend to do well when they play aggressively with the bat and take the game to the opposition.

If West Indies play a defensive game, they will struggle to win.

Bowl Defensively

While they must be aggressive with the bat, they must look to be defensive with the ball. The bowlers in the past have tried to go after wickets and in doing so have gone for a lot of runs. The strategy should be to bowl a lot of dot balls and let the Indian batters make mistakes.

India – Keys to T20 Success

Opening Combination

India does well in T20 cricket when they get big runs at the top of the order. India will be without R Sharma and will have a new top order. If they don’t click during this T20 series, India will struggle to get runs on the board.


The Indian spinners will find it a lot more challenging to bowl to the big-hitting West Indies players in the T20 format. If the spinners can bowl economically and take wickets, they will help India clinch the T20 series.

West Indies vs India ODI Series Betting Odds

India go in as the betting favorites to win the ODI series with odds of 1.8 on Betway while West Indies are the underdogs even though they are playing on home soil with odds of 2.2. One of the reasons why the West Indies are underdogs is because they have had a terrible ODI series at home against Bangladesh.

India will not be playing at full strength as the BCCI has decided to rest a number of their key players including captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, H Pandya, J Bumrah, M Shami, and R Pant.

With nearly half of their regular side in the shed, India will field a number of young and exciting players in their quest to win the ODI series in the West Indies.

The BCCI has decided to name S Dhawan as the captain for the ODI leg of the series and R Jadeja as his deputy. If you do not know how to bet on cricket, we have you covered.

West Indies vs India Likely Playing XI

India: S Dhawan (C), R Gaikwad, I Kishan, SK Yadav, S Iyer, S Samson, S Thakur, R Jadeja, A Patel, Y Chahal, and P Krishna.

West Indies: K Mayers, S Hope, S Brooks, B King, N Pooran (C), R Powell, R Shepherd, A Hosein, G Motie, A Phillip, and J Seales.

West Indies – Keys To Victory

The West Indies struggled against Bangladesh in the ODI’s because they failed in both their bowling and batting departments. The batting was the biggest letdown for the West Indies as they found it difficult to play the Bangladeshi spinners.

Key Batters Must Perform

The West Indies need at least one of their top four batters to play an anchor role and bat right through the innings. The batter that is best capable of doing this is the talented S Hope. The problem for Hope is that he has found it hard to get runs in the recent ODI series and will be short of confidence.

Shamarh Brooks is new to the side but the series against India is a great opportunity for him to establish himself at 3 and make some big runs.

Captaincy Challenges

N Pooran is under pressure as the captain and a key batter in the side after failing against Bangladesh. The West Indies will be looking to their captain for both directions and runs in the ODI series.

Pooran cannot afford to have another bad series with the bat as it will make it all the easier for India to win.

India – Keys To Victory

India will be without their core ODI side but they have enough talent on paper to be able to beat the West Indies. India will once again look to use spin like Bangladesh did and make it difficult for the West Indies to make runs. Their keys to victory include:

Using Their Spinners

India will need to make a decision as to whether they are going to play two or three spinners during the ODIs. Given how poorly the West Indies handled spin against Bangladesh, India could likely go in with three spinners.

If India decides to go in with just two spinners, it might make it a bit easier for the West Indies to get some runs on the board.

Captaincy Challenges

S Dhawan has captained India in the past and will rely on that experience during the series. The big challenge for Dhawan will be to play more responsibly at the top of the order, utilize his bowlers effectively and be on top of his game plan in exploiting the weaknesses of this West Indies side.

WI vs IND Series Prediction

Our online cricket betting experts believe that India will win this ODI series as it’s too short a duration for West Indies to bounce back from the drubbing they suffered against Bangladesh.

The big question is whether India will win the series 2-1 or 3-0. We think if India plays three spinners in the first ODI, it will increase their odds of winning 3-0.
