India will start as favourites, as their last two emphatic wins have not only brought their campaign back on track in the T20 World Cup, but have also propelled them back as the red hot favourites. The only team that has been unbeaten so far in this tournament is New Zealand, and they will face a stern test to keep their record intact against England.

West Indies depend heavily on Gayle, and he is in form for having struck a 47-ball century against England at the Wankhede. The West Indian win in that game over England means the Caribbean team will be knowing the pitch and the ground a little better than the Indians, who will be forced to depend on their past knowledge and experience. India will have to be wary of the West Indian firepower, as they would not want t chase any massive total given the fact that there are far too many power-hitters in the Caribbean side.
