IND vs WI: India Playing for the first T20I against West Indies Prediction

Indian team continue to provide opportunities to youngsters in the T20I side as they recently named the team for the five-match series for West Indies. Hardik Pandya will continue leading the team and there were quite a few fresh faces in the team. 

Coming to the playing 11, it’s a no-brainer that Shubman Gill will open the innings. But the question remains who will open the batting alongside him as Ishan Kishan and Yashasvi Jaiswal are there too? As per us, Jaiswal wins our vote as he has been in fine form in T20Is of late. 


Suryakumar Yadav is expected to bat at No.3 whereas Sanju Samson is likely to keep the wickets and bat at No.4 for the team. The keeper-batter will be making his return to the team after a while as he was out with an injury. Tilak Varma is also expected to make his debut and play a crucial role in the middle order. 

Hardik Pandya along with Axar Patel are likely to be two all-rounders in the team whereas Ravi Bishnoi is also expected to make a comeback into the team. The leg-spinner has been terrific in the IPL with the ball and will be crucial for the team. 

Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik are likely to be pacers in the team. The trio were picked into the team based on their performances of late.
