An exciting season of retro-themed cricket finally comes to an end this week, as the Road Safety World Series gets into its playoffs stage. Fans will get to savour a whole bunch of quality, high-octane cricket action as their favourite former stars take the field one more time for a final hurrah. And it all starts on Wednesday when hosts India Legends face off against the West Indies Legends in the first semi-final. In this article, we offer information on Dream11 Prediction and live match channel for INDL vs WIL RSWS 2021.
In-form India up against explosive West Indies
Having lost but one of their six league stage games, India arrive into the knockouts with a confidence-packed unit. Openers Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar- the latter of whom also happens to be the team’s captain- have been in fine run-scoring form; occupying the 7th and 8th spot on the leading run-getters list. The likes of Yuvraj Singh, Subramaniam Badrinath, and the Pathan brothers- Irfan and Yusuf- comprise a well-rounded, free-flowing middle order. On the bowling front too, each of Irfan, Yusuf, and Yuvraj have come up with clinical performances; with other players like Pragyan Ojha and Munaf Patel complementing them fine. All-in-all, the hosts seem quite a settled and well-oiled unit heading into the qualifier game.
Meanwhile, while the Windies Legends haven’t performed as consistently as opposed to their blue-jersey-clad rivals; each one of their three wins has been quite classy. Captain Brian Charles Lara looked in particularly good touch in his outings against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Dwayne Smith and Narsingh Deonarine have looked quite impressive in their roles in supporting their captain. On the bowling front, Tino Best and Sulieman Benn lead Windies wicket-taking charge; with the latter having starred in a MoTM worthy performance (3/17) against Bangladesh.
