India vs West India Prediction:
Indians have played prolific cricket throughout this tournament and they have got a well-deserved spot in the semifinals of the tournament. They are the only Asian side to make it to the final four and will be expected to make it to the final 2 as well. It was a hard-fought battle for them in the last Super 10 match against Australia in which it was Virat Kohli who showed his class and helped his side make it to the semis. He was unbeaten at 82 and really anchored the Indian innings. He will be the key factor for India in the semifinal as well.
The openers from India have been up and down in the tournament so far and they have played a one-off good innings. There will be huge responsibility on them to take the burden off the shoulders of Kohli and the middle order. Raina and Yuvraj have not been in really great form and will have to play to their potential, at least, to take their side home. Captain cool will be important for the Indians as usual with his cunning tactics and special ploys.
As for the Indian bowling, Nehra, Ashwin and Pandya are going to play a key role just like they did in the last match against Australia. It is likely for India to play the same winning XI that played against Australia and not many changes are expected unless there are some injury concerns.
With this probable XI India are certainly the favorites to win it and will expect their winning combination to deliver yet another punch and take them through to the Big Final that is scheduled on Sunday.
