Team India takes on West Indies on Thursday at Old Trafford in Manchester in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

With the rain playing a significant part, the tie at Old Trafford will also hold a lot of importance for both India and West Indies. Just a few days before the match, Team India’s training session suffered massively due to the bad weather in Manchester.

But, according to the Weather Company's weather forecast for June 27, Manchester will have clear skies with no rain. There's still no guarantees over the weather condition for Thursday, with 10 per cent chance of rainfall.

Virat Kohli's Team India is yet to lose a game in this year's World Cup and they would like to register a spot in the semi-finals alongside Australia. 

The weather in Manchester on Wednesday has been moderately sunny. 

This is how the weather on match-day going to be according to the Weather Company. 

Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri till now have not been too keen to use Rishabh Pant's firepower. Pant can come in only if the team management considers the idea of Vijay Shankar being disposable.

The West Indies is a team loaded with fast bowlers so it could be a bit easier for Dhoni to rotate strike as he hasn't been comfortable against the slow bowlers. Afghanistan exposed it thoroughly during the last game.

There have been arguments and counter-arguments about Dhoni's batting approach in the IPL compared to his style when playing 50-over cricket for India.

Dhoni, during Chennai Super Kings various chases, would invariably target one of the inexperienced Indian domestic bowlers while playing safe cricket against the bigger international names.

Against a Kagiso Rabada or a Jofra Archer, he didn't take any risks before hitting the others in successful run-chases. A strategy needs to be worked around Dhoni's skill sets here too to place him at a position on which he can bat freely.

With his inputs and electric glovework behind the stumps an absolute necessity, this will require some tactical brainstorming by the captain and the coach.
