India’s 3-match T-20 series with England has just come to an end. The men in blue had an excellent series where they managed to crush the Brits 2-1 in a rather lopsided contest, barring the final game of the series. While the men in blue are still slated to play a 3-match ODI series with England, they have a major contest coming in the latter part of this month i.e. India tour of West Indies.
So, if you have been planning to bet on the matches that will be played in this series, you’ve come to the right place. All you have to do is register at Parimatch, and you’ll be able to try your hands at cricket betting.

A Look at India’s Squad
While the T-20 side is yet to be announced, the BCCI has announced the squad for the ODI series. While some of the senior players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jaspreet Bumrah, and Mohammad Shami have been rested from the series, the squad sees the return of Shubhman Gill while seamers Avesh Khan and Arshdeep Singh get their maiden call. Shikhar Dhawan has been announced the captain of the team, which may also see Rituraj Gaikwad making his debut in the 50-over format.
It will be interesting to see whom amongst Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan would be donning the gloves. Considering that Shikhar Dhawan would be joined by either Rituraj Gaikwad or Shubhman Gill at the top, it is likely that Sanju Samson might be able to give Ishan Kishan a miss due to his ability to score quickly while batting in the lower middle order.
The squad also features all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel. However, given the likelihood of Yuzvendra Chahal making it to the final XI, it’s highly unlikely that Patel would be preferred over Jadeja, especially if the team decides to play with 6 bowlers. Also, if the team decides to play Shardul Thakur, they might have another batting option at number 8 or 9.
A Look at the West Indies Squad
While the West Indies squad against India hasn’t been announced yet, it’s unlikely that there would be too many changes in it from the one when they last played India in February this year. Despite having won just one of the five ODI series they have played lately, the Nicholas Pooran-led side is expected to persist with the team due to the lack of too many options. Apart from India, they have lately lost to Pakistan, Australia, and Ireland.
While the Caribbean team easily outclassed Bangladesh in the just concluded Test and T-20 series, they certainly have problems to address in their batting unit, which has let them down time and again. Other than Shai Hope and Pooran, the rest of the batting side looks in complete disarray. However, the presence of quality all-rounders like Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, and Romario Shepherd could swing fortune in the favor of the West Indies.
Betting on the India tour of West Indies
Parimatch offers a range of betting options on its platform. If you’re looking to bet on the matches that will be played in the India tour of West Indies, you can try the following two kinds of betting options on the Parimatch platform.
1. Over Under Betting
Also known as totals betting, over-under betting is a popular way of betting in sports. The method is simple – you place a bet on whether the final score at the end of the game will be over or under a specific number.
So, you can place a bet on whether or not India will score over 300 runs in a game, whether or not the margin of victory is going to be over 100 runs or 6 wickets, etc. so, if you’re new to the world of betting, this kind of betting is much easier to understand.
2. Handicap Betting
Handicap betting is a type of bet that gives a team a “head start” in terms of runs, points, goals, or any other metric that is used to determine the winner. The handicap is, therefore, used to even out the odds between two mismatched teams.
For example, if you bet on India winning by a margin of more than 50 runs, that would give the West Indies a head start of 50 runs and make the contest more challenging.
Tips for Betting on India tour of West Indies
If you are planning to place your bet on the India tour of West Indies, here are three tips that will help you win.
1. Do Thorough Research
If you are about to make cricket bets, get a deep understanding of the process. This does not apply only to betting but to the rules of cricket too. The more understanding you have of these topics, the higher your chances of winning a bet will be. Get the hang of the statistics, as it will help you with betting predictions.
2. Analyze the Teams
Wait before you place your bet for or against a team. Analyze how they have performed in recent times. Check their statistics in recent games to understand how good or bad their form is. Do the same for the other team too.
Even if a team looks strong on paper, it can fail on a given day. So, look for factors that might lead them to a loss. This might include the absence of certain players, weather and pitch report, or the location where the match is being played.
3. Check the Weather Before Using Cricket Betting Sites
Weather can play a huge role in determining the outcome of a match. Make sure to look at the weather forecast beforehand. Rain or fog could lead to a shortened game. Similarly, humidity can make it difficult to grip the ball, contributing to high scores. If the conditions are particularly windy, the trajectory of the airborne ball could change.
