Welcome to the IND vs WI Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. West Indies will now face India in the ODI series 2022 on 27 July 2022 at The Port of Spain. Keep on reading for more information on the IND vs WI game.
After taking an unassailable lead in the ODI series, India will look for a clean sweep as they take on West Indies for the final time in this format. For India, their batters have done well in the series so far and they were able to cross the 300-plus target twice in two games. However, they will be worried about the way their fielding and the bowling went in this series.
On the other hand, West Indies have more positives to take from this series despite ending on the losing side. They came into this series after a poor performance against Bangladesh where they couldn’t even cross 200. The batters were hugely criticized and this time, they did put up a better show. The team had chances until the very last moment but unfortunately, India handled the pressure well.

IND vs WI Today Match Prediction, ODI series 2022, Who Will Win the Match?
India to win
India is likely to finish off the series with a win once again. They have already won the series and would be keen to try on a new combination in order to give everyone a chance in the squad. They certainly have a strong batting line-up but their bowling has been below-par and they will look to improve the same in this final ODI.
Whereas, West Indies have played a brave cricket so far and have given all-in. It is just unfortunate that the hosts couldn’t hold on to pressure in the final moments. The team once again will try to break the losing streak as they have lost 7 ODIs in a row now. The team would prefer batting first as compared to the first ODI, they were in a better position in the second. Also, they will bet their money on Shai Hope, who has found the form in the last match.
Team Update/Players Availability/Injury News
- India is likely to test their bench strength here as they have already won the series
