IND vs WI 1st T20I Predictions & Betting Tips

India and West Indies will head into the first of the three-match T20I series as a part of the 2022 West Indies Tour Of India. The scheduled fixture will be played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Wednesday. February 16. As the teams get geared up for the shortest format of the game take a look at the top betting tips from the IND vs WI match prediction.

After having clinched a victory in the three match limited overs series, India will look forward to open the 20 over game on a positive note. India defeated West Indies by 96 runs in third ODI to complete 3-0 clean sweep against West Indies. The side bowled Windies out for 169 after putting 265 on the board after opting to bat. This was also India's 11th successive ODI series win over the Windies. Suryakumar Yadav shone brightly with the bat in the 50-over game as he top scored in the series. With the ball, Prasidh Krishna was the standout bowler as he scalped 9 wickets in the series. It was a disappointing performance by the visitors right from the inaugural match of the series. West Indies have succumbed to low totals in all three games. On the other hand, India put in a dominant performance with both bat and ball in the series under the leadership of their new captain, Rohit Sharma. The action now moves to Kolkata for a three-match T20I series. As the teams meet for the first time to play the shortest version of cricket, I have handpicked the top three betting tips for you from the IND vs WI head to head match.

India vs West Indies head to head stats of T20I remain in favour of the Indian team reading 10-6. The last time they went up against each other was when West Indies toured India in 2019 to play the three-match series T20I, in which the visitor was defeated by 2-1. India is leading West Indies by too many points in the current ICC points table because the West Indies have failed to deliver these days. While India sit pretty at the second spot, the Windies are way behind at the tenth spot. In the 2021 season, the Men in Blue have played 16 T20I matches out of which they have emerged victorious on ten occasions. This will be India's first T20I series in the 2022 season. West Indies on the other hand kick started the season with a five match T20I series played against England which they won by 3-2. In 2021, the Windies played 25 T20I games and managed to win only nine of them. The last of which was whitewashed by Pakistan.
