India Vs West Indies - Match Preview

India v West Indies, ICC Cricket World Cup 2011

The last match of the group stages will provide the fans another chance to catch a glimpse of their superstars.

Now, if this is a must win game for India or not will be known by the result of the South Africa Vs Bangladesh game to be played on Saturday (if Bangladesh win then India must win to avoid getting into a net run rate situation with England).

The Indian batting has looked good on occasions (Vs England and Vs Bangladesh) but pretty ordinary on others (Vs Ireland, Vs Netherland and Vs South Africa). they will have to pull up their socks if India are to stand any chance of winning the cup.

The West Indies team has also looked very unpredictable but they can beat any side on its day. The Chepauk pitch will also provide an interesting battle as batsmen will not find it easy to score runs on it and a score of about 260-275 will be considered a par score.

India should look to win the game and anything less will not go down well with the fans!!
