India vs West Indies, Live Cricket Score: But, what is a India friendly pitch? Does this team do better on spin tracks? Not if the opposition has quality spinners as we have found out in Sri Lanka in the past, and recently against New Zealand in Nagpur. And this West Indies team has Samuel Badree, who was anointed as the No. 1 T20 spinner in the world by ICC on Tuesday.

India vs West Indies, Live Cricket Score: THIS COULD well be the last time that we see a serious West Indies team in a world event, for some time anyway. The men from the Caribbean are already set to miss next year’s Champions Trophy in England, owing to their failure to be ranked among the top-8 ODI teams in the world. And if they continue to languish where they are presently, 9th on the table, till September 30, 2017 — the cut-off date for direct qualification — the former two-time world champions might have to face the ignominy of playing the qualifiers a year later to make sure they’re part of the next 50-over World Cup in 2019.

India circumspect before semi-final
