Strength of India and West Indies

India is sure to perform well in this tournament since they are powerful in every domain - batting, bowling, and fielding. Recent successes against Australia and South Africa in both ODIs and tests will certainly boost their performance.

Two time cup winners West Indies is not certainly portrayed as probable champions but this does not undermine their chances, taking into consideration their earlier performances in the cup.
