WI vs IND 1st T20I
WI vs IND 1st T20I:
West Indies will be concentrating on snapping their seven-match losing streak and winning the opening Twenty20 International (T20I) match on Friday in order to continue playing in the series against India. The second cricket match between India and the West Indies will take place at Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad.

The away team is off to a good start in the remaining competition after a tense victory by just three runs in the first game of the series. India lost seven wickets when batting first, but they still managed to record a decent total of 308 runs. The club’s seasoned hitter and captain, Shikhar Dhawan, performed a great performance, scoring 97 runs off 99 balls to help his team get to a total that can be held.

Dhawan and Shubman Gill’s 119-run opening partnership provided a strong foundation for the Indian batting order. Shubman Gill used 53 balls to score 64 runs. The West Indies were unable to make a strong start in their run chase after losing wicketkeeper-batter Shai Hope (7 runs off 18 balls). They had only scored 16 runs up to that moment. The home team later staged a huge recovery, but ultimately they could only muster 305/6 in 50 overs.

 WI vs IND 1st T20I: Overview

India and the West Indies will play their first Twenty20 International (T20I) game on Wednesday (July 28). India has been performing well and easily defeated England in the T20 format of one-day internationals. Additionally, India defeated the hosts in the most recent one-day international series. Shikhar Dhawan’s team is currently leading the way. However, West Indies will compete in the 20-over format in an effort to reverse their negative trend.

West Indies and Bangladesh recently played home and away matches in a T20I and T20I series.

Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and One-Day Internationals (ODIs) were both a part of the multi-format series (T20IIs). West Indies won the Twenty20 International series against Bangladesh with a score of 2-0. The West Indies suffered an embarassing 0-3 loss in the One-Day International series. In February of this year, India and West Indies played their most recent T20I and T20II series.

India was able to accomplish a 3-0 sweep in both series by winning all three Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and all three One-Day Internationals (T20Is) (T20IIs). The West Indies have the chance to get revenge on their home turf now that they have been vanquished.

WI vs IND 1st T20I: Key Players


India would like to test the likes of Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan, and Avesh Khan a chance to redeem themselves in the format of one-day internationals. This is because regular players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohler, Jasprit Bumrah, and Shami will be getting some rest for the one-day international series. In addition, India would like to provide players like Avesh Khan with the opportunity to make a name for themselves in the one-day international competition format.

The same set of Indian players competed against South African players in all five Twenty20 matches, and the same group of players emerged victorious in each and every one of those matches. India was victorious over South Africa in every single Twenty20 match that the two countries played.

West Indies

They are going to give it their all in order to overcome West Indies and enhance their ranking now that they have the opportunity to do so thanks to the fact that they have this chance. They are going to give it their all since they are determined to win. On the other hand, the group that Nicholas Pooran will be coaching into their encounter versus India will go into it with the intention of creating a performance that is all-encompassing.

Their batting has been an issue for them in one-day internationals, and the main reason for this is that none of their batters are prepared to accept responsibility for extended innings. Their poor performance at the plate can be partially attributed to this factor, among others. They were unable to score more than 200 runs in total throughout each of the three One-Day International matches that they played against Bangladesh. Bangladesh won all three of those matches.

If the West Indies are going to have any chance of beating India, they are going to need to see a significant improvement in their performance at the batting position. At this point in the competition, India is in first place overall.

WI vs IND 1st T20I: Match winner prediction

The West Indies played 136 one-day international matches at the Brian Lara Stadium. Sixty-six of the games ended in triumphs, and sixty-seven games ended in defeats. They have a mediocre home record, so they will view this contest as an opportunity to shift the tide in their favor. India, despite their numerous setbacks in this format, made a valiant attempt against England and won the series.

In one-day international matches against the West Indies, the guests have a significantly better overall record than the hosts. The outcomes of the two games, which the tourists watched over the course of three days, would significantly and directly affect how they felt about themselves.

There isn’t much reason to be positive about how they will bat given how the test series went, however, they may bowl better in the one-day internationals. We anticipate that the Indian team will win this match rather comfortably since we don’t believe the West Indies will stage a strong comeback as a result of this humiliation.
