Cricket World Cup U.S.A. TV: How to Watch India vs. West Indies, Live Stream, Odds

India will be looking to book a semifinal spot when it takes on the West Indies on Thursday.

Virat Kohli's men have looked mightily impressive throughout the tournament so far, winning four of the five games they have played—with a tie against New Zealand washed out due to adverse weather.

Having entered the tournament with the second-shortest odds to win the World Cup, India has now moved ahead of England and is a 2/1 favorite to lift the trophy.

Saturday's game against Afghanistan, however, was much closer than expected, with India scraping home by just 11 runs courtesy of a Mohammed Shami hat-trick.

If the win illustrated the depth of India's bowling unit—Shami had sat out his team's four previous World Cup games—it also highlighted a batting problem, as its middle order never got going.

Former captain MS Dhoni put together just 28 as his team scored very slowly and finished the innings with just 224 runs on the board.

The West Indies, on the other hand, have little to play for apart from pride after they were eliminated by a loss to New Zealand on Saturday. Chasing 292 for victory, the West Indies collapsed to 164-7 before Carlos Brathwaite took them within five runs of a memorable win.

Having reached his century, however, Brathwaite was caught on the boundary as he swung for the fences one time too many.

Here's everything you to know ahead of Thursday.

When and where is the game?

India takes on the West Indies at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester on Thursday, June 25, with play scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. local time (5:30 a.m. ET).

TV channel and live stream

The game will be broadcast in the U.S. by Willow TV and Hotstar, with a live stream available via Sling TV.

The latter is one of the official partners of Willow TV and is available across various platforms such as Apple TV, iOS, Android TV, XBOX, Chrome TV, Fire TV and Roku.

Match odds

As one of the only two unbeaten teams left in the tournament, it is no surprise to see India as the bookmakers' choice. According to Oddschecker, the 2011 winners are 3/10 to win on Thursday, while the West Indies are 11/4.

At 9/2 and 5/1 respectively, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are the favorites to be top run scorers in the game. The former averages 61 runs per innings at this World Cup but is yet to score a century, while the latter has already reached triple figures twice, against South Africa and Pakistan.

For the West Indies, Chris Gayle is 9/1 to be game's top scorer. The veteran batsman arrives into the game in good form after scoring 87 against New Zealand on Saturday, his highest tally of the tournament yet.

Form

India and the West Indies arrive at Old Trafford in contrasting state of minds. The former is still to taste defeat, winning four games.

India would move up to 11 points with a win on Thursday, almost mathematically booking a semifinal spot before it takes on England in Birmingham on Sunday.

After winning their opening game against Pakistan, meanwhile, the West Indies lost four of their next five games and are third from bottom in the table with just three points.

When the two teams met in a five-game ODI series in India in October last year the hosts won 3-1.
