The 3rd ODI of the three-match series will see West Indies host Team India at the Queen’s Park Oval, Trinidad. India lead the series with 1-0, having won the second One Day by 59 runs (DLS method) at the same venue. Virat Kohli was the star of the evening, scoring 120 runs in the first innings. With the Rain Gods hovering over the ground once again, the series is as good as won by the Men in Blue.

  Weather Conditions 27°C, 83% humidity, 10 kmph. Scattered drizzles expected.

  Injury Updates
IND- India have no injury worries as their new-look side is all set to get started.

India vs West Indies Dream11 Prediction | Fantasy Cricket Tips

Having seen a relatively ordinary (by his standards) World Cup campaign, Virat-run-machine-Kohli resumed in the duty he is best at – scoring centuries! The Indian skipper’s knock of 120 from 125 deliveries helped the team reach 279/7 on what looked like a tricky surface. This was the World No.1 batsman’s 42nd OCI century, just 7 off Sahin Tendulkar’s record 49. Moreover, King Kohli, as he is popularly known,  also surpassed Sourav Ganguly’s lifetime tally of 11,363 ODI runs. Amongst Indians, Kohli (11,406 runs) is only behind Sachin Tendulkar (18,426) in terms of most ODI runs.

Shreyas Iyer proved to be an able partner to him. The Delhi Capitals captain made the most of a rare opportunity provided to him by scoring 71 runs. Having seen the top order bundle up reasonably quickly, Iyer partnered well with Kohli, even feeding his skipper with strike with singles at regular intervals. The duo added 125 runs in 115 balls for the fourth wicket. Have India, at last, found their ideal No. 4? Well, it may be a bit early to comment, but we are nonetheless, keeping our fingers crossed.

The bowlers did the rest in the rain-affected contest, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar the pick with figures of 4/31. The usual suspects Mohammed Shami (no pun intended!) and Kuldeep Yadav were at it again, but it was the performance of Kuldeep Yadav that took everyone’s attention. The youngster bowled with consistently, both in pace and length, and was rewarded with a vital wicket of Shai Hope. More will be expected from him in the coming games.

Predicted Winner

Having achieved an unassailable lead in the ODI series, India are the undoubted favourites complete the drubbing. West Indies may have the home advantage, but they have their own vulnerabilities with the bat and the ball. The lack of a leader amongst the ranks magnifies their problems further.

Predicted Winner: India

Dream11 Hint

Have a perfect balance of batsmen and bowlers in this contest. Considering the possibility of rains and therefore reduced overs, it would be better if you pick more bowlers. Amongst batsmen, choose the most established ones.
