West Indies v India

India had a rocky start to the competition but are slowly gathering momentum in the final stages of the World Cup. The host nation were favourites pre-comp, and are also favourites to beat West Indies tonight.

They've had two main weapons in this year’s tournament, even though competitors have been well aware of them for a while. The first is Virat Kohli - this bloke is a freak. Averaging over 50 in T20 cricket is insane, without him India would already be out. The openers haven't fired yet, which has put a lot of pressure on the young Indian. However, Virat has thrived with the added heat, and proved why he's classed as one of the best in the game. The other key weapon in India’s ranks are their spinners, Ashwin has been well supported by the part timers, not only taking wickets but bowling at a decent economy.

There are doubts if Chris Gayle is fully fit, that said it will only take two knocks by the big man and West Indies will be crowned champions. West Indies will be here to entertain and that doesn't involve milking spinners, they'll look to score quickly off the slower bowlers which will be their downfall.

India will make it into the final, but might be pushed all the way if a few of the Caribbean’s get going!

I've already given him the build-up he quite rightly deserves, following that I can't ignore the $3.4 on offer for Kohli to top score for India.

Oddscheckers best bet

We're backing the Gayle factor, with the big man opening the batting, $2.2 for West Indies to score the most runs in the first 6 is overs is a must back. West Indies will struggle in the middle overs against the spin with defensive fields, we expect them to come out all guns blazing at the top of the innings.
