IND Vs WI Dream11 Team Prediction, Match Preview, Fantasy Cricket Hints: Captain, Probable Playing 11s, Team News; Injury Updates 1st T20I in Trinidad, 8PM IST, August 3
The first T20I between India and West Indies will be played on Thursday at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad. This is the first of five T20Is between the two teams. The three-match ODI series between India and West Indies finished on Tuesday at the same place. India won the series by a score of 2-1.
West Indies, who have won the T20 World Cup twice, are co-hosting the 2024 T20 World Cup next year. They will try to build on their dominance in the lead-up to the event, since they didn't make it to the ODI World Cup 2023 in India later this year. India, on the other hand, has won 17 of the 25 T20Is between the two teams so far.
Rohit Sharma, captain of the Gujarat Titans, will no longer be in charge of the Indian team. Instead, Hardik Pandya, captain of the Gujarat Titans, will be in charge. Yashasvi Jaiswal, the opener for the Rajasthan Royals, is set to make his T20I start in this game. Last month, in Dominica, he had a great Test debut.
Nicholas Pooran, who scored the most runs in Major League Cricket (MLC), will be able to play for the West Indies in the T20I series. This will be a big help for their team. In addition to Pooran, ODI captain Shai Hope and Rajasthan Royals fast bowler Oshane Thomas will be back in the West Indies T20I team.
For India, players like Yuzvendra Chahal and Arshdeep Singh could play again for India. It will be interesting to see if the Indian team management decides to play Sanju Samson instead of Ishan Kishan, who was named "Player of the Series" in ODIs, in this game.
