India vs West Indies Dream11 Prediction 3rd T20
|Key Players in form||IND – Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma
WI – Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran, Carlos Brathwaite
|Weather Conditions||28°C, 68% humidity, 10 km/hr. Clear weather.|
|Toss Advantage||Winning the toss would be crucial. Both Kohli and Pollard will look to win the toss and elect to bowl first as teams chasing have won five out of the six T20 internationals played at Wankhede.|
|Pitch Conditions||The pitch in Wankhede is a ‘batsman’s pitch’. Spinners will have little to no role to play on this pitch. Going by the IPL 2019 games played here, seemers may find some bounce, helping them to occasionally trouble batsmen. Further, expect dew in the second innings of the match, meaning defending a score would be hard.|
|Venue Stats||Highest total (IPL 2019): 213/6 by DC against MI
(T20 Internationals): 230/8 (20 Overs) by England vs South Africa (2015)
Average Score at the Wankhade in T20s in 2019:176
|Injury Updates||IND- India will be without the services of the injured Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
WI- West Indies have travelled to India without their swashbuckling opener Chris Gayle, who has sought some time out from international cricket.

Fantasy Cricket Tips for today’s cricket match
Wankhade has a good batting pitch, meaning that we could have a high scoring match on our hands. In 2019, Wankhade has seen an average first innings score of 176.
Rohit Sharma is one player who has proven himself time after time in IPL for Mumbai Indians. Along with him KL Rahul and Virat Kohli will be instrumental in tipping the match towards India. Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer could be called upon for contributing in the middle order if the top order falls as they did in the second T20.
Shivam Dube scored a half-century in the second T20 and will look to add to his performance.
West Indies have struggled with batting in 2019. However, the first two T20s showed potentials in their batting side. They scored 207/5 in the first T20 and chased 173 in 18.5 overs with the loss of only two wickets in the second T20.
Winning the toss will be crucial. As earlier mentioned, teams chasing have one five of the six T20 internationals played on this pitch. Furthermore, dew will play an important role in helping teams to do so.
West Indies will look forward to playing at the Wankhade and emulate their performance against India from the semi-finals of the 2016 T20 World Cup. After setting 193 runs to win, West Indies, led by Simmons’s 83 and Russell’s 43 chased down the target with ease.
2019 has not been the kindest to West Indies. Prior to the start of the series, they had won just won T20 in the year. However, the last two matches have been a much brighter affair for them. They scored 207 and 173 in the two T20’s respectively while at the same time troubled Indian key batsmen Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli in the second game.
Despite their resurgence, India has better chances to come through with a victory solely because of their immense experience and deep batting order.
