Afghanistan vs Windies in India, 2019

WI vs AFGH Dream11 Today Match Prediction: West Indies and Afghanistan are in Lucknow to play 3 ODIs, 3T20Is and a test match. The three-match ODI series kickoffs tomorrow with the first game scheduled to be played in the afternoon. This will be followed by three T20Is on November 11, 14 and 16, after which the two teams will play the one-off Test from November 27 to December 1. All the games will be played on a single venue –  Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.

West Indies got outclassed by India in their last series at home in all three formats and failed to secure a single win.  Interestingly, the Windies find it difficult to play the spin on sub-continent pitches while Afghanistan is studded with star spinners like Rashid, Mohammad Nabi, and Mujeeb ur Rahman. So, an interesting battle is coming down the line.

As both teams prepare for the first ODI, a good start is what they would be looking for to gain some momentum right from the start. The match will begin at 02:00 PM IST.

Last encounter:

Windies (311/6) beat Afghanistan (288) by 23 runs in ICC Cricket World Cup at Leeds, July 4 2019

Head to Head in ODIs:

Total – 06

Windies – 02

Afghanistan – 03

The Surface at the Ekana Cricket Stadium

This venue is new to everyone and hasn’t been used much lately. Boundaries are pretty long here so spinners will love to bowl here. Initially, there should be some assistance for the new ball bowlers but later on, it will all depend on how well you connect.

The weather forecasts suggest a warm and pleasant day.

Form Guide:

Windies –

India clean-swept Windies by 3-0 in T20Is; won 3 matches ODI series by 2-0 after the first ODI ended in no result and whitewashed the hosts in the 2-match Test series by 2-0.


Afghanistan recently toured Bangladesh for the one-off test which they won by 224 runs and participate in the T20I Tri-series including Zimbabwe. In the tri-series, they defeated Bangladesh and Zimbabwe once apiece – and also lost once to each side too before making it to the finals.  The final, however, got abandoned without a ball bowled.
