ICC World Cup 2015: India vs West Indies - Player vs Player stats

India vs West Indies- Player vs Player stats

A player vs player comparison of Indian and West Indian cricketers

The defending champion, India, are coming into this game unbeaten so far in the World Cup, whereas the West Indians after being badly hurt by the South Africans are looking for a redemption of sorts in this match. The onus is on West Indies to win and keep their hopes alive for the Quarter-Finals.

Should Indians carry on with their terrific form with both the ball and the bat, West Indies will be given a run for their money at the WACA today.

Here, we statistically compare the expected playing XIs of both the sides and attempt to judge which team will start the contest as favourites. The winner between each duo has been judged only by ODI career stats and not talent, form or anything else.

From the table it is clear that the Indians are enjoying a clear advantage. All West Indian hopes are pinned on one man, Chris Gayle. Unless he give them powerful start they will be left with much to be desired to make it to the next round of the tournament.
