IND vs WI 1st ODI Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report | IND vs WI 1st ODI Dream11 Prediction Today | Barbados Pitch Report

India and West Indies enter this three-match ODI series with different goals. Hosts West Indies will be looking to restore some sort of pride after their dismal showing in the recent World Cup Qualifier in Zimbabwe, where they were well off the pace. For India, a home World Cup beckons, and they must get their combinations right as they attempt to break their decade-long ICC trophy drought.

Shimron Hetmyer returns for West Indies in a big boost for the hosts. As is Oshane Thomas, who can trouble opponents with his pace. Spin may play a key role, so how well the Windies spinners can limit India’s dynamic lineup will be interesting to see.

Nicholas Pooran, Jason Holder and Keemo Paul are unavailable for West Indies.

India have decisions to make. Sanju Samson, who has an excellent ODI record, could find a place in the middle order if the visitors opt to leave Ishan Kishan out. Also, pitch conditions will dictate whether India will pick an extra spinner. Mohammed Siraj is rested.

Kensington Oval Barbados Pitch Report and Weather

Expect spinners to be hard to get away on the Barbados surface. In the ODI series between West Indies and New Zealand last year, the first innings scores were 190, 212 and 301, with fingerspinners Kevin Sinclair, Akeal Hosein and Mitch Santner conceding less than five per over. But, Boult, Holder and Southee were the top wicket-takers.
