After dodging a bullet against Afghanistan, Team India will square off with the West Indian team at the Emirates Old Trafford. Kohli & Co must be eyeing to maintain their winning run in this World Cup while the wayward Windies would be hoping to register their second victory in this tournament. With another victory in the upcoming match, the Indian team will qualify for the ICC World Cup 2019 semi-finals. Having lost their previous encounter against New Zealand, it’s all over for the West Indies and they will play for their pride in the remaining campaign. Another intriguing contest is set to be unfolded when the tournament favorites and the underdogs take on each other at Manchester tomorrow.
