ABOUT THE MATCH
West Indies vs India 1st T20 is about to get underway as India begins its tour of the West Indies. Of course, this match is not going to be played in the West Indies but in Lauderhill Florida, a market that the West Indies has invested in quite a bit over the last few years.
Every T20 match from here on in is going to be important. There is a World T20 around the corner in 2020 to be held in Australia and then another one in 2021 to be held in India. West Indies is the current T20 World Cup champion while India is one of the highest-ranked teams around as well.
There are going to be some new faces that will get a run in the Indian side but most of the big boys have turned up for this series. The West Indies has also re-integrated most of its T20 stars into the national side and is going to be very hard to beat.
West Indies vs India 1st T20 is going to be played at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
West Indies vs India 1st T20 2019 is going to be played at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida. The weather forecast for the match day is not very good. There is a 30% chance of thunderstorms predicted on match day. Hopefully, the rain will stay away and allow a full game to be played.
The pitch at Lauderhill is usually good for batting. There were plenty of big scores hit here the last time West Indies and India played each other. The small boundaries also make defending a total very difficult.
These are two very strong sides with different kinds of strengths. West Indies has a better T20 side because of a deeper batting lineup and more power being available but India has some of the best players in the world like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
We think the West Indies is going to be hard to stop in this format.
Bet on the West Indies to win.
