Virat Kohli's India will try to maintain an unbreakable streak when they will face West Indies in there next match. The team India has won 4 matches out of 5 matches, there 1 match was abandoned due to rain against team New Zealand. Team India have to win 2 matches in their upcoming matches to confirm the seat of Semi-final. Whereas team West Indies have won only 1 match out of 6 matches, there 1 match also abandoned due to rain against team South Africa. MS Dhoni's batting position in the middle order will be the Indian team management's primary problem when they take the West Indies team.

Dhoni's painfully slow approach against Afghanistan yielded 28 runs off 52 balls and he was roundly criticized. Even the normally restrained Sachin Tendulkar questioned the approach. "There is none of the type intent in positive" the retired player - Tendulkar's observation towards the game has been seen on a TV channel.

Kohli and coach Ravi Shashtri till now didn't give a chance to Rishabh Pant's Firepower. He can come in only if team management thinks to drop the Vijay Shankar.

The West Indies is a team loaded with fast bowlers so it could be a bit easier for Dhoni to rotate the strike as he hasn't been comfortables against the slow bowlers.

On the other hand, team West Indies will look to finish on a high after being knocked out despite a great start against Pakistan. Andre Russell being ruled out of the team due to a hamstring injury has been another big blow. In a recent match of Windies against New Zealand, Carlos Braithwaite played an amazing inning for the team to the brink of a miraculous victory.
The team also performed well against the team Australia but failed to close out the result despite having the Aussies on their knees. With only 3 points on the board, the tournament's dark horses are all but out of contention for a place in the last 4 and a loss against team India will shut the door completely for them.
