The pitches at Kensington Oval have historically been difficult for batters. If seamers dominated in the past, spinners enjoy great assistance here in recent times. The average first innings score from 50 ODIs played at the venue stands at 228.

The Bridgetown weather doesn’t look great with a possibility of showers. Humid weather is predicted with an 88% chance of precipitation.

West Indies vs India – Match Predictions

India have the head to head record between these two sides in their favour. The men in blue have lost only one match in the last 16 ODIs against West Indies. Compared to the West Indies, the visitors have a far better batting and bowling unit.

Top Run-scorer

Shai Hope has over 4800 runs in the fifty-over format at an average of 50 with 15 centuries to his credit. Bet on Hope to be West Indies’ top batter at 2/1 (3.00). Ishan Kishan opened the innings in the first game and smashed 52 off 46 deliveries. He’s likely to open again and you can bet on him to be the top batter for India at 4/1 (5.00).

Our Prediction: Shai Hope to be West Indies’ top run-scorer at 2/1 (3.00).

Top Wicket-taker

Kuldeep Yadav was excellent in the last game, snaring 4 for 6 in just three overs. Given West Indies’ struggles against spin, you can bet on him to be India’s best bowler at  3/1 (4.00). The left arm spinner Gudakesh Motie bagged two wickets in the first game. Back him to be the top bowler for West Indies at 11/4 (3.75).

Our Prediction: Kuldeep Yadav to be India’s top wicket-taker at 3/1 (4.00).

Man of the Match

Ravindra Jadeja claimed three wickets in the previous game. The pitch suits his bowling and he can make an impact with the bat as well. Jadeja is a good candidate to be the player of the match at 11/1 (12.00). Among others, Kuldeep Yadav, Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma are some of the top betting options.

Our Prediction: Ravindra Jadeja to be the Man of the Match at 11/1 (12.00) odds.

West Indies vs India Preview

Having lost the first game, West Indies will be desperate to keep the series alive on Saturday. Let’s take a look at two teams ahead of their encounter.

West Indies

West Indies were outplayed in the series opener, where they went down by five wickets. Shai Hope scored 43 but the rest of the batting unit just collapsed as they were bowled out for 114. Bowlers made some inroads but didn’t have enough runs.

West Indies had a lot of changes in the previous game with Kyle Mayers opening the innings and Shimron Hetmyer back in the middle order. In the bowling unit, they could add another spinner in this match.

Squad: Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Alick Athanaze, Shai Hope (c/wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell, Romario Shepherd, Kevin Sinclair, Yannic Cariah, Jayden Seales, Gudakesh Motie

Indian bowlers were on top from the get go in the opening game. Ravindra Jadeja picked three wickets of the middle order before Kuldeep Yadav cleaned up the rest with 4 for 6. Ishan Kishan smashed a brilliant fifty while opening the innings.

As for the second match, the visitors could bring in Axar Patel in place of one of the seamers considering how the pitch behaved.

Squad: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar
