IND vs WI: India vs West Indies Dream11 Prediction, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Updates For 1st T20I

IND vs WI 1st T20I: The Indian squad will face the West Indies in a three-match T20I series after whitewashing them in the ODI series. India recently met New Zealand in a T20I series last year and defeated them by 3-0. In this series, the Indian team will be without Washington Sundar, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel.

Sundar has been ruled out after suffering a left hamstring muscle strain while fielding in the third ODI. Sundar will be replaced in the squad by Kuldeep Yadav. In the second ODI, Rahul also suffered an upper left hamstring injury while fielding. Axar was just diagnosed with Covid-19 and is now in the latter stages of treatment. The two players on the Indian team have been replaced by Ruturaj Gaikwad and Deepak Hooda.

Top Picks for IND vs WI Dream11 Match

Top Picks – Batters

Rohit Sharma scored 78 runs at a strike rate of 105.41 in the three-match ODI series against the West Indies. In 119 T20Is, he has scored 3197 runs at an average of 2279 and a strike rate of 140.28.

Rovman Powell has 1771 runs at an average of 23 and a strike rate of 132.26 in 107 T20 outings. He also has 21 wickets to his name.

Top Picks – All-Rounders

Jason Holder is one of the few players in the West Indies squad who has consistently produced good results. Holder is an important member of the West Indies squad. He has 153 wickets at an average of 27.71, an economy of 7.76, and a strike rate of 21.4 in 162 T20 matches. At a strike rate of 127.99, he has 1422 runs.

Kieron Pollard, who missed the final two ODIs of the recently concluded series, is fit enough to captain the side once more. Pollard scored 69 runs in five T20I matches against England, with a strike rate of 140.82. He took four wickets for a total of 28 runs at an average of 28.

Top Picks – Bowlers

Deepak Chahar has 131 wickets at an average of 23.91, an economy of 7.61, and a strike rate of 18.8 in 115 T20 matches.

Harshal Patel made his T20I debut against New Zealand last year. In two matches, he took four wickets at an average of 12.75. Patel had an average of 20 in five games for the Syed Mushtaq Ali competition, with an economy of 8.88 and a strike rate of 13.5.

Top Pick – Wicketkeeper

In the absence of KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant has been named the Indian team’s vice-captain. In 140 T20 matches, he has scored 3650 runs at an average of 32.88 and a strike rate of 145.53.

Suggested Playing XI No.1 for IND vs WI Dream11 Fantasy Cricket

Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma (c), Shreyas Iyer, Kyle Mayers, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder (vc), Romario Shepherd, Deepak Chahar, Harshal Patel, Odean Smith.

Suggested Playing XI No.2 for IND vs WI Dream11 Fantasy Cricket

Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Rovman Powell, Kieron Pollard, Jason Holder, Romario Shepherd, Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel (vc).

IND vs WI Risky Captaincy Options

Suryakumar Yadav made his T20I debut against England in March of last year. In 11 T20Is, he has scored 244 runs at an average of 34.85 and a strike rate of 155.41. Surya dismissed for a duck the previous time India played at Eden Gardens. As the captain of your fantasy squad, he could be a hazardous option.

Kyle Mayers debuted in the T20I format in November 2020 and has since played in four games. He has only scored 96 runs and has failed to reach the half-century mark. You can take a chance and make him your fantasy team’s captain.

Player you should avoid

In place of Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav joins the Indian squad. Kuldeep bowled two wickets in the third ODI against the West Indies. You should ignore him in your fantasy team because he last played a T20I for India in July of last year.
