Team news & latest updates.
Carlos Brathwaite is the man of the moment, he is in his tremendous form. His 101 runs from 82 at crucial time of the match gave a lot of hope to West Indies team as a whole. He is filling the part of injured A Russell in the middle order pretty well. The only concern in the batting is the form of N Pooran & Shai Hope, who are not yet made a impact for the team. Sheldon Cottrell is the gem of bowler for West Indies, he will be player to look out for in West Indies this match.
A team looking to fix their semi-final spot after Australia did it first it’s India. A well-balanced team with bat and bowl, have an overload of talented and in form players. Even the bench strength looks soo good, R Jadeja, Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik haven’t got a chance to play yet in the tournament. The only concern is about Kedar Jadhav & MS Dhoni’s batting form, they need to fire up in last overs when it’s most needed. Also Kohli can use Vijay Shankar in bowling attack as an extra bonus. Bumrah is reliable as always in death overs plus opening spell. B Kumar’s absence is cleared by M Shami perfectly.

Our Match Prediction.
Our pick is India, well-balanced side with star performers all over the lineup. Windies have to pull off a pace attack and have to get some early wickets then they have a good chance of getting a turn of events. All eyes will be on Cottrell vs Indian middle order batsmen.
