Watch Ind vs WI Semi Final Live Streaming Today
While England has already sealed a place in the finals and eliminated New Zealand which was the strongest team so far in the tournament, it makes today's match even wide open. It proves that you never know which team will surge as winners at the end of the day. India defeated Australia and that spirited win has definitely raised the confidence level in the team. West Indies lost to Afghanistan in the last match but they won all before that. It would be a tight tussle at Wankhede in the second semi finals. Watch India vs West Indies T20 match live streaming and scores on HotStar whereas Star Sports HD network and DD National (Doordarshan Sports) will bring live telecast on TV with Hindi and English commentary.
The two stars for today's match have to be Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle. They both are equally successful in the T20 format, yet their batting style is so different. Gayle bats aggressively and is well known for his big hits out of the boundary line, Virat is known for his quality text-book shots that gives him runs at an equal pace as Gayle scores. With completely opposite batting styles, it would be a treat for all us at Wankhede in the second semi finals.
These two players are so familiar with the cricket skills. They have played together for few years as a part of IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore. They would soon play together once the IPL 2016 kicks off after the conclusion of ICC T20 World Cup 2016.
The only issue for India has been its heavy reliance on Virat Kohli. The likes of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Suresh Raina have failed miserably. The suprising factor is still India has managed to win three out of last four matches in the T20 world cup. The middle order that consists of Yuvraj, Kohli and Dhoni has clicked all the time. Unfortunately Yuvraj is out with injury and India would miss a part time spinner like him. Good part is, the ever consistent Ajinkya Rahane may get a chance to play today.
Wankhede promises to be a high scoring venue. The lowest score registered here in this world cup has been of 172 by Afghanistan. So brace yourselves for loads of sixes. You never know, you can catch one of those sixes while you are enjoying a cool breeze at Nariman Point!
If we talk about the bowlers, the quick names that come to the mind would be Ashish Nehra, Ashwin, Jadeja, Bumrah, Pandya, Andre Russell, Samuel Badree, Darren Sammy and Dwayne Bravo. If they manage to restrict the batsmen to anything below 8 per over, that would be a good day for them.
Let's us hope for a great match tonigh and may the better out of the two progress for the finals on 3rd March 2016.
