Head to Head stats for India vs West Indies T20
India – 5
West Indies – 5
No Result- 1
The head-on encounters between the 2 teams have been even-stevens as of now but when you look at their record in West Indies, the hosts have a slight edge of 2-1. Credits for the same go to the World T20 World Cup in 2016 where India got knocked out from the penultimate stage of the series.
The Pitch & Conditions
The first 2 games are happening at Central Broward, Florida that happens to be a ground showcasing big sixes, big totals and a perfect T20 pitch that tends to slow down a little as the game progresses so toss tends to be a huge decider. Team batting 1st generally gets the advantage since they know when and how to use the ‘slower one’ during the 2nd innings.
The final happens to be at the Providence Stadium, Guyana, where the 1st innings average score is only 138 and the team batting first, has won 10 times over the 17 T20 matches played. The game could be low scoring but again batting first would be the ideal choice. Keep an eye on the toss while finalizing the editing of your teams.
