Team India Analysis
Team India is the most consistent side is doing great in this world cup. They are still the unbeaten side with 4 wins and 1 washout out of 5 matches. They have looked too dangerous among 10 teams and will be looking to win the world cup 2019. Each and every department whether its bowling, batting or fielding looking solid. They are showing why they are the number 1 team in the world. Their last match against Afghanistan was a very hard-fought match as their batting collapsed and only managed to score 224 runs in 50 overs. However, their bowling did not let them down and defended the total and went on to win by 11 runs.
Both the batting and bowling departments are doing their job. After the drop of Shikhar Dhawan due to injury, KL Rahul was asked to open the attack along with Rohit Sharma and they both are going great building good partnership and giving India a perfect start. Virat Kohli, as usual, builds the innings in the middle overs and performing very consistently. Finishers MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya are doing their job nicely. Kedhar Jadhav was absolutely brilliant against Afghanistan and helping India to reach a good score.
Due to injured Bhuwaneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Shami was included in the squad and he proved to be an asset for the team by taking a hat-trick against Afghanistan. Champion bowler JAsprit Bumrah also showed his class and picked up the wickets of two set batsman who were taking the game away from India.
West India Team Analysis
West Indies started their world cup journey with great confidence and their team was looking quite strong to give tough competitions to the oppositions. However, they have not performed like they were looking. They have managed to win only 1 match out of 6 matches. They started the campaign with a huge win against Pakistan and they wanted to continue this form after a great start. However, they failed to perform consistently and lacking game plans against the oppositions.
Their batting order is power packed but they lack consistency.In their match against New Zealand they showed great intent to chase.Chris Gayle gave them a good start and played a great knock of 87 runs under pressure situation.Shemron Hetmyer and Carlos Braithwaite continued to fight for West Indies and at the end lost the match by just 5 runs.Carlos Braithwait was absolutely terrific,he scored stunning century in a pressure situation but unfortunately could not get his team out of the line.
