Fantasy Cricket Tips for today’s cricket match: IND vs WI | Dream11 Hint and Tricks
The last two ODIs played here at the Barabati stadium have produced high-scoring matches. In the first match, India welcomed Sri Lanka with a score of 363 courtsey of centuries from Shikar Dhawan and Rahane. The visitors were bowled out in 200 runs.
In 2017, India played England here and set them a score of 381 to chase. A valiant England fought back but ultimately lost by 15 runs. Expect another high-scoring match in Cuttack.
KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma both scored centuries in the 2nd ODI against West Indies. Expect them to end the year with good form. Virat Kohli went for a rare duck. However, he will be willing to score runs if he gets the chance to. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant are also in scintillating form. Both of them played great knocks as India reached 390 in the second ODI.
All-rounder Jadeja did not get a chance to bat. However, he proved his mantle with the ball as he picked 2 wickets. With the bowl, Mohammed Shami bowled with express pace and well-timed variations as he picked three wickets. Kuldeep Yadav took a hattrick to finish firepower in the West Indies batting order.
For West Indies, Shai Hope has been in good form as he scored 78 runs off 85 balls. However, he will need some assistance in the top order if the West Indies need to put up a good score or chase down a decent total. Nicholas Pooran also showed his worth with the bat as he put up 75 runs.
With the ball, Sheldon Cortrell picked 2 wickets but was expensive as he conceded 83 runs in 9 overs. Only Jason Holder was able to control the Indian batsmen as he conceded 45 runs in his 9 overs. Pollard will hope the bowlers bring back their ‘A’ game as they still have a chance to stop India running away with another bilateral series.
Virat Kohli and Co look favourite to win the third ODI and win the series. India have a better track record on this pitch. They have won 3 of the 5 matches played here. Further, they have beaten WI here in 2011. Expect the Men in Blue to take a victory and end 2019 on a high.
