WI vs IND Preview
- In their last 15 T20I series, India has only lost one game while winning 12 and drawing 2.
- With the loss to India, West Indies has won two of the last three series.
- In the previous 15 T20I encounters, India has a 12-2 win-loss record versus the West Indies.
Friday morning marks the start of the five-game T20I series between West Indies and India at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad and Tobago. The hosts defeated Bangladesh at home earlier this month and won the series 2-0. With victories at The Oval and The Ageas Bowl, India defeated England 2-1 on the road. 10:30 local time is the start of the game.
The hosts would be thrilled to get back to T20 cricket after suffering their ninth straight loss in ODIs and getting completely thrashed. In this condensed version of the game, they have a significantly better record.
India performed admirably during the ODI series, and they now have the luxury of bringing back some of their top players for this portion of the tour. The visitors will be expected to win again after defeating England earlier this month.
WI vs IND Weather Report
Throughout this game, the temperature will range between the high 20s and the low 30s. Although a thunderstorm is a remote possibility, we don’t believe that play will be hampered.

WI vs IND Pitch Report
On this surface, spinners typically receive a lot of help, while the overhead conditions will also benefit the swing bowlers. On this surface, a par score of over 175 is reasonable.

India is the favorite to win this match.
The West Indies and India ODI series was really entertaining and included two very close games, but this series ought to be even more fun. In this format, the hosts are a much stronger team than the visitors, who welcome back several of their greatest players. We anticipate a close match, with India taking the first T20I.
