After three stellar games between India and Pakistan, England and Afghanistan and West Indies and New Zealand, we return to Manchester for what promises to be a thrilling contest. India take on West Indies with a win potentially taking them to the semi-finals of the World Cup. The Jason Holder-led side, though, are slacking and a loss could end their tournament. Even a win might not be enough to salvage their World Cup knockout hopes.
Pitch and weather conditions:
The Manchester has seen high scoring games in the recent past with the side batting second struggling to gin down targets. Both teams will want to bat first if they win the toss despite that going against the trend of this World Cup.
Wicket-keeper: Shai Hope (9.5 credits)
Shai Hope has been West Indies' best batsman for a while in ODIs. Despite concerns surrounding his strike rate from the middle-order, Hope has continued to deliver runs and in this game, with Lewis nursing an injury, we could see Hope coming in alongside Chris Gayle at the top. Against India's new ball pair, it isn't ideal to back many openers but Gayle and Hope are among the few you can trust.
Batsman: Rohit Sharma (10 credits)
With two hundreds in the World Cup, Rohit Sharma has been in terrific touch and will want to add on to his run tally with big runs against the Windies. The opener has stepped up and scored big once he gets starts
