So, who exactly is going to make it to the finals?
As far as West Indies is concerned, they would have been second unbeaten side to make it to the semis after New Zealand had they won their last match against Afghanistan in Super 10 round. Nevertheless, it’s a game and such things can happen any time to any big side. They are still a pretty confident unit and will pose a really big challenge for the Indians to qualify for the finals.
They will be banking on players like Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels and Darren Sammy to provide them with a big fighting score in the match. Andre Fletcher also played a brilliant knock in the game against Sri Lanka but he has been ruled out due to hamstring injury. It will be a chance for Lendl Simmons to come in and play a big knock in a big game. Let’s see how he takes up the challenge.
In the bowling department, West Indies will be expecting something brave coming from Samuel Badree, Andre Russell and Dwayne Bravo. Russell and Badree have been in the spotlight and they will again get to focus against India.
Indian director, Ravi Shastri, has already acknowledged that they have played 70% to their potential and there is still room for improvement. It’s been a quiet going for most of their batsmen and their opening woes are yet to be dealt with. Their only hope ahead of the main fixture is Virat Kohli who has played some brilliant cricket throughout the tournament and he is a real man of chases for India as whenever India is chasing, he comes up with something special.
It was due to his unbeaten brilliance in the game against Australia which earned India this semifinal berth. He played a brilliant knock of 82* in that match. However, India will expect Raina, Dhawan or Sharma to rise to the occasion as well. Also India will be making a forced change in this game with Yuvraj ruled out due to injury. It will be either of Rahane, Pandey or Negi taking his place in the playing XI in semifinal.
On the bowling front, Indians have been spot on throughout the tournament and even after conceding too many runs against India in first few overs in last match, they recovered pretty well to restrict them to 161 in the end. It will be Nehra, Pandya, Ashwin and Jadeja who will be expected to impress with the ball in the semifinal.
