Cricket Betting Tips, Match Prediction and Preview India v Windies 1st T20I

World cricket currently lacks superstars. I feel Virat is great for Test cricket Smith

While he was named in the T20I squad, he was left out from the ODI team with Cricket West Indies citing an injury as the reason for his exclusion. The Caribbeans enjoy a 5-2 head-to-head record against India in T20Is. Rohit Sharma will be leading the side in the absence of rested Virat Kohli and he will look to lead the team from the front in this opening clash.

Captain Brathwaite, who famously clubbed four consecutive sixes off Ben Stokes to win the World Cup here two years ago, will also be counted on as a match victor for the side missing the services of talisman Chris Gayle who declined selection.

In Cricket, the first Twenty-20 global of the 3-match series between India and the West Indies will be played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata this evening.

Pant is expected to fulfil the wicket-keeping responsibilities while Karthik could take on one of the positions in the outfield.

Months earlier, the Windies had also overcome the Indians in Mumbai, in the semi-final of the T20 World Cup, and Brathwaite said he was hoping for similar results in the three-match series.

Captaincy seems to bring out the best in Sharma who notched up 317 runs (average 105.66) in five innings in their title-winning campaign at the Asia Cup. India's last win against the Windies came way back on March 23, 2014 in the World T20 in Bangladesh. The two sides will lock horns at Eden Gardens.

The match will begin at 7 pm.

India: Rohit Sharma (Capt), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, K Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem.

The Windies are a different team when it comes to T20s, with the likes of Keiron Pollard, Andre Russell, skipper Carlos Brathwaite, Dareen Bravo and latest sensation Shimron Hetmyer in their ranks.

Coming to the T20 games, India will start as favourites after cantering to a 3-1 ODI series win and two test victories prior to that.
