West Indies vs India – 1st ODI – India tour of West Indies 2019
The Indian Cricket Team is currently on tour for the West Indies and the United States during the month of August and September 2019 to play 2 Test Matches, 3 ODIs and 3 T20I matches. T20Is will be played first in United States of America. Sad news for Indian fans is that MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya will not play for India in this series.
This will be the first ODI between India and West Indies. It will be played on Thursday –08th August, 2019.Venue will be Providence Stadium, Guyana. Match will be held on 09:30 AM (Local Time). Last two T20I’s were also played at Guyana (South America).
India won all T20I earlier. India did a clean sweep by beating West Indies in all of the T20 Internationals. And our experts are of the opinion that India will take away this very initial ODI match form West Indies. India is in outstanding form since the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and they also performed well in previous T20I matches. India is even better team for one day cricket instead of twenty-twenty format. And they will win this match quite easily. There are couple of changes in the indian squad. Krunal Pandya is replaced by Kuldeep Yadav. Washington Sundar is out and Yuzvendra Chahal is in.
Shai Hope joined West Indies again after ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Keemar Roach will also join team again. Performance of West Indies wasn’t good in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and as well as in recent twenty-twenty series. All of the key players are out of form or not able to perform – what they are supposed to perform. This is the main reason for their consecutive defeats against India.
They really need to bring the old aggressive form back else they will face defeats in this series too.
The team Who Will Win the Toss is supposed to choose bowl first because conditions are not good for cricket in Guyana. There will be huge amount of humidity in the atmosphere. Heavy rain is predicted on the match day. This will disturb the batting team and hence bowling team will get advantage of the bowling-friendly conditions. Bowlers can seek advantage of the extra seam and pace due to conditions.
Heavy rain is being predicted on Thursday in Guyana. Weather isn’t suitable for cricket. There might be heavy rain during match time. While temperature will last between 24 and 29 degrees. Conditions are worst for cricket match.
