India vs West Indies match is going to be nothing short of explosive. This is a match that is being talked about for days. Both teams come with their own set of advantages.
To be true, batting performance is something that the fans of both the teams are looking forward to.
Many people have been predicting as the number of the sixes that will be hit by both Caribbean team and the Dhoni lads. Batting is the biggest advantage of both the sides and their fans are expecting explosive innings from several top batsmen of the two teams.
There is no denying the fact that the team India has been rather lucky to reach the semifinals. After being squarely beaten by New Zealand in the first match of the game, India won the match against Bangladesh by a whisker. There was no hope for the team India, but the Indian bowlers kept their cool and bowled extremely well to win the match.
But it was not the only match that gave very tough time to the Indian cricket fans, their match against Australia, which was essentially a quarterfinal, India was able to chase the Aussie squad’s 161, thanks to a blistering hitting performance from Virat Kohli. Without him the chase would have never materialized.
The second semifinal of the tournament to be played between India and West Indies is being played at Mumbai. It will start 7 p.m. local time. A report by the IBN7 says, “The Wankhede Stadium track being prepared for the ICC World T20 semi final clash between India and the West Indies is unlikely to favour the batsmen to the same extent as it did in the earlier matches, it has been learnt…There’s an even coating of grass to bind the wicket, but the track would be slower than in earlier games. But it will still be a good T20 wicket,’ informed sources said here today ahead of the March 31 clash which is to be witnessed by a packed capacity crowd of 33,000 spectators.”
The report goes on to add, “The heat in Mumbai has been on the higher side over the last few days with mercury touching the mid-30s, and this factor too is expected to affect the way the track will behave, the sources pointed out.”
Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli are the most talked about players and all eyes are fixated at tehm at the moment. Will they perform or will they perish without making a mark today is yet to be seen.
