ABOUT THE MATCH
India has won the T20 series against the West Indies. The T20 matches are a wake-up call for the West Indies team to look for a win.
Will it make a difference for West Indies by moving back to home conditions? Will India give its bench strength a chance and play with more youngsters or will they continue with the same winning combination? Plenty of questions to be answered for both sides.
West Indies vs India 1st ODI 2019 is going to be played at the Providence Stadium, Guyana on the 8th of August 2019.
The team winning the toss is most likely to bat first. The pitch at Guyana is usually fast and dry.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
West Indies vs India 1st ODI is going to be played at the Providence Stadium, Guyana. There is a 30°C and 30-40% chance of rainfall predicted in Guyana on match day and that is not a good sign. The rain in the islands can be frequent but also clears away quickly so hopefully, there should be no loss of overs.
The pitch in Guyana is expected to be good for batting and have some bounce in it for the fast-bowlers. Pitches in the Caribbean are seeing a resurgence and we hope to see some lively surfaces for India’s tour of the West Indies 2019.

Top Order and Middle Order Analysis:
Top bowlers Analysis:
- Three wins from three matches signal a return to the usual for this fantastic Indian cricket team. The focus may be on the lack of titles, rightly so, but there is no taking away from the fact that India has been consistently brilliant in every format of the game for a very long time now.
- Rohit Sharma played the way he can and dominated the second T20 while R Pant, Virat Kohli, and Krunal Pandya also made some useful runs.
- India’s top-3 is going to remain unchanged and that is its biggest strength in the long run. India must examine whether this strength is preventing its middle order from developing in the short run.
- Similar changes can be made in the bowling department.
- Deepak Chahar is almost certainly going to play this last match in place of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and that will allow every member of the squad to get some time in the middle.
- Neither of these changes is going to weaken India. Having a strong bench allows India the luxury of bringing in players that are battle-hardened and ready to step up straight away.

- West Indies would have been disappointed about their losing streak.
- The middle order of the West Indies is very strong. Even without the presence of Andre Russell who choose to play in the GT20 Canada instead of turning up for his national side.
- Shimron Hetmyer or Nicholas Pooran could be sent to open the innings instead of Lewis.
- The bowling unit of West Indies has performed badly. They were taken apart by Rohit Sharma and India’s all-rounders in the end.

PROBABLE WINNING TEAM:
Team India has won the T20’s series and looked dominant so far in this series and they will look to seize the ODI series from the Carribean’s.
