India faced West Indies 11 times in the shortest format of the game where both of them won 5 times each and one game had ended with no result.


Nicolas Pooran and Rishabh Pant both are the best choices as wicket-keepers, keeping their current form in mind.

Four batsmen have been included in the WI vs IND Dream 11 predictions team. They are Shimron Hetmyer, Kieron Pollard, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

Hence, they become obvious choices for the team.


Carlos Brathwaite and Krunal Pandya are the two allrounders who will fit in the WI vs IND Dream 11 Predictions team. Although Brathwaite had a good campaign in the World Cup, his team failed to do well.
