India vs West Indies, 1st ODI Match Prediction. The 6th of February 2022 will be remembered as a watershed moment in Indian cricket history. The Indian cricket team will become the first to participate in 1000 One-Day International matches, and Rohit Sharma and his colleagues will definitely want to make this a memorable match by winning it. Covid-19 has invaded the Indian camp ahead of the series, with Shikhar Dhawan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, Axar Patel, and a few members of the support staff among those affected.

India will also be coming off a dreadful performance in their previous ODI series, in which they were thrashed 0-3 by South Africa. The West Indies will also play in this series after losing their previous ODI series 1-2 against Ireland. The ‘Men in Maroon’ will also be hoping to get the series off to a good start.

Match:  India vs West Indies.

Date: February 6, 2022

The weather will be bright when India takes on the west indies in the inaugural One Day International on Sunday, February 6th. The temperature will fluctuate between 22 and 31 degrees Celsius. The humidity level will be at 34%, while the wind speed will be around 6 km/h.

Pitch Report

The bowlers will get a lot of help from the pitch here at Narendra Modi Stadium. With the new ball, there will be a little movement for the pacers. In the middle overs, the spinners will be used. Because of the large size of the stadium, you can anticipate the batsmen to take a lot of singles and doubles. When winning the toss, both teams should look to the ball first, as due is likely to come into play in the second innings.

India vs West Indies Match Tips

In the first ODI match of the series, India and West Indies will go head to head, with the pressure squarely on the hosts. They were thrashed by South Africa in their most recent series, and with several important players out, it will be up to those nominated to fill the hole and try to turn things around. Virat Kohli will play a key role, and while the Windies will be boosted by their recent T20i victory over England, the Indians should be too strong on home territory.
