West Indies vs India Prediction Preview:

Welcome to WI vs IND Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. In the 1st ODI of this 3-match ODI series, we will be witnessing a pulsating cricketing game between India and West Indies.

The hosts lost the Test series 0-1 after they surrendered in front of the Indian troops. Even though they did show a fight in the 2nd Test, it was not enough as rain played spoilsport on the final day.

Most of the Indians are in form and that will be a big bonus for them as they gear up for this fresh new sojourn on foreign soil.

India will be playing in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 and all ODI matches in this calendar year will be practice matches for the big stage for the Blues.

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

India to win

After West Indies have plunged to an all-time low in ODIs and after the unavailability of two of their star performers in the form of Jason Holder and Nicholas Pooran, India are sheer favourites in this game.
