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

India to win

In spin-friendly conditions, there is no better team in the world than India. The Indians are also the number 1 ranked side in the world and have the skills and expertise to stamp their authority in every single Test match.

West Indies looked quite deflated in the 1st Test match and losing by an innings and 141 runs was a big dent to their confidence levels.

We predict that India will be again winning the Test match by a humongous margin at Port of Spain.
