India vs West Indies (IND vs WI) Today Match Prediction Preview:

Welcome to the IND vs WI Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. West Indies will now face India in the T20I series 2022 on 1 August 2022 at Warner Park, St Kitts. Keep on reading for more information on the IND vs WI game.

After a thumping win in the first of the five-match T20I series, India will take on West Indies at Warner Park today. The visitors proved too good for West Indies as they returned with a 68-run win on Friday.

India were boosted by the return of the regular captain Rohit Sharma alongside Rishabh Pant. The captain wasted no time and smoked 44-ball 64 after being asked to bat first. The middle-order batters couldn’t find their timing and struggled against the West Indies attack, but Dinesh Karthik turned things around for the team with 19-ball 41*.

He was well supported by his Tamil Nadu teammate R Ashwin in the end. Chasing 191 to win, the Hosts failed to read the Indian spinners and were all over the place. Indian attack led by Ashwin reduced them to 122/8 in their 20 overs in the end.

IND vs WI Today Match Prediction, T20I series 2022, Who Will Win the Match?

India to win

India are expected to repeat their winning performance in 2nd T20I as well. In fact, India has won their last five T20I matches against West Indies and even if they are going with an ‘experimental’ team, they are likely to dominate once again. West Indies certainly has the talent to hand India a defeat but at the moment, they are inconsistent and need something miraculously special to stand a chance.

  • India will look to replace Shreyas Iyer with Deepak Hooda today.
  • Brandon King and Romario Shepherd will return to the playing eleven after missing the last match due to visa issue.
