The group stage of the Road Safety World Series 2021 is over and we have the four semi-finalists left remaining. The first semi-final is going to be played between India Legends and West Indies Legends.
India dominated the group stage and lost just one match to England while the West Indies team was a bit more inconsistent. It needed to win its previous match against England and it did so while chasing down a large total off the very last ball of the match.
That win will give it the confidence to pull off another upset against India.
India Legends vs West Indies Legends Road Safety World Series 2021 is going to be played at Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, Raipur on the 17th of March 2021.
India Legends flexed its batting muscles in the previous match as it scored over 200 runs against South Africa. Sachin Tendulkar top-scored with 60 from 37 deliveries while Yuvraj provided the power boost at the end of the inning with 52 runs from 22 deliveries including six massive sixes.
India’s batting is very strong, although it is unclear if Badrinath will be available for this match or not. He retired hurt in the previous match after making an excellent 42.
With Yusuf Pathan, Manpreet Gony, and Irfan Pathan also able to provide the big hits down the order, India has a very strong batting lineup whether it is batting first or chasing. Also, if Sehwag gets going then he can just take the game away in no time.
The bowling has been reinforced with the addition of Vinay Kumar to the squad. Irfan Pathan, Manpreet Gony, Munaf Patel, Pragyan Ojha, Yusuf Pathan, and even Yuvraj Singh all provide an abundance of bowling options to India.
If India performs to expectations, it is going to be hard to beat.
V Sehwag, SR Tendulkar, Mohammad Kaif, Y Singh, N Ojha, YK Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Manpreet Gony, RV Kumar, Pragyan Ojha, Munaf Patel.
An excellent performance against England Legends just 24 hours before this match would have boosted the West Indies Legends’ confidence. They chased down 187 off the very last ball of the match thanks to some brilliant batting from Dwayne Smith and Narsingh Deonarine.
Kirk Edwards also batted well in the middle order and Ridley Jacobs was aggressive at the top.
What we saw from the West Indies Legends in the previous match was a best case scenario. If you think that is likely to happen every single time that they play then that is just not realistic.
Against a better spin attack than England’s, like what India has, the West Indian batsmen could struggle. They are too dependent on Dwayne SMith for their runs and we believe they lack the depth that is needed to beat the Indian team.
Among the bowlers, only Suleiman Benn and Dwayne Smith were able to have some sort of impact in the previous match. Every other bowler was expensive and that is going to be a problem for the West Indies in its match against the Indians also.
A weak and underperforming bowing lineup was rescued by the batsmen in the previous match. To expect that to happen again is a bit optimistic in our opinion.
Dwayne Smith, Ridley Jacobs, Narsingh Deonarine, WKD Perkins, Kirk Edwards, Brian Lara, Mahendra Nagamootoo, TLB Best, Sulieman Benn, Ryan Austin, Dinanath Ramnarine.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. We have seen that be a big advantage in this series so far and that should be taken into account while placing your bets.

The weather conditions in Raipur have been very good for cricket so far and that is not going to change. We have also seen the surface remain quite good for batting in all of the matches so far. A similar flat batting track with a little bit of help for the spinners is something that we can expect for the first semi-final.
A total of around 170-180 is par batting first.
We are going to be betting on the India Legends team to win this match. It has a better batting lineup with more depth and power. Its bowling lineup is also better than what the West Indies has at its disposal.
Bet on India Legends to win.
