ODI 1st 2022 India Vs West Indies Match Prediction: West Indies Looked Completely Out Of Touch In Both Batting And Bowling Departments Against Bangladesh


India will face the Caribbean challenge after completing a successful tour of England where they won both the T20I and ODI trophies.

Team India will cross swords with West Indies in the 1st ODI of the 3-match ODI series. This game will be played at Queen's Park, Oval on Friday (July 22).

ODI 1st 2022 India Vs West Indies Match Prediction

India is in excellent form in the ODI format as they defeated the strong English side by 2-1 just a few days ago. On the other hand, West Indies were whitewashed by Bangladesh in the recently concluded 3-match ODI series. India also won their last series against the hosts so, the momentum is with the men in blue. West Indies will also be determined to play compatible cricket and finish their losing streak in the ODI format.

The Indian selectors have decided to rest the big players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, Rishabh Pant, and Muhammad Shami in the ODI series. The Indian team management will like to test their bench strength and that's why Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Avesh Khan, and a few more players have been added to the squad.

It is a huge chance for all these players to cement their places in the ODI format. These players performed well against South Africa in the 5-match T20I series at home and they are also expected to deliver their best cricket against West Indies under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan.

Meanwhile, West Indies will be keen to put on a better show against India as they were completely outplayed by Bangladesh in their previous series. The batting department is looking very weak as the Caribbean side didn't manage to even cross 200 runs in all the 3 ODIs against Bangladesh.

The bowling department of West Indies is looking ordinary as they were only able to pick up a total of just 10 wickets in three matches. The inexperienced Gudakesh Moti was the most successful bowler for his side with 6 wickets in that series. The veteran all-rounder Jason Holder will be available in this series so, it is expected that the Windies will deliver a better show against India.

Shikhar Dhawan

Shikhar Dhawan will lead the side against West Indies and he is also the most experienced player on this side.

The left-hander is expected to play a big knock in the opening game of this series and help his side to win the match.

Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal has been India's key spinner in the recent past and he is the one who gives crucial breakthroughs to his team. Chahal also bowled well against England and he will be the main weapon for India in this series as the West Indies batters are slightly weak against spin.

Hence, we predict that India will beat West Indies in the first ODI match of this series.
