Match Prediction

Windies, India, T20I

In August, when India toured West Indies, the host was badly defeated across all the formats. The Caribbean team was weak in all the departments to defeat India. The figures between the two teams also state the same.

West Indies team is no more the same team which won the trophy of last T20 World Cup in 2016. In fact, after June 2016, West Indies’ T20I winning rate has gone down to 30.77, just better than Zimbabwe whereas India’s winning rate at the same time is 63.83. To defeat the Men in Blue in the home is a more difficult task for Windies.
