West Indies suffered a huge setback when their batsman Andre Fletcher pulled his hamstring against Afghanistan at the VCA Stadium in Nagpur. With the all-important semifinal clash against India coming up in Mumbai, Thursday, West Indies are lining up Lendl Simmons as his replacement.
West Indies could also have gone with Dwayne Smith, who was impressive in the inaugural edition of the Pakistan Super League. With Simmons having played a los of cricket at the Wankhede Stadium for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL, he knows the conditions better.
India vs West Indies Prediction
West Indies will win the toss choose to bat first and win the match. The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, the venue of the semifinal, is the best batting track in India at the moment. In the three matches that were played at the Wankhede in the group stages, runs, runs and more runs were scored, with the six scores reading: 209, 172, 229, 230, 182, 183.
India might have had to play under testing conditions in the majority of their group matches, but even that cannot be used as an excuse for the openers and Suresh Raina, India’s No.4 batsman, to fail pretty much every single time.
MS Dhoni was forced to defend the three batsmen after India got out of jail against Bangladesh last week, but after watching Rohit, Dhawan and Raina throw away their wickets in a pressure chase against Australia, even the skipper will be wondering what is going on.
India limped to the semifinals, thanks to some individual brilliance from Virat Kohli and a brain-fade from the Bangladesh batsmen. Now that they have reached the semis, the three-of-the-top-four-fails trend cannot continue, as Dhoni also admitted at the post-match presentation.
