Windies aim to get better of India

CHENNAI, India –  Already with one foot in the quarter-finals of the World Cup, West Indies will look to confirm their place there when they meet pre-tournament favourites India here Sunday.

Bangladesh’s heavy 206-run defeat to South Africa virtually sealed a spot in the next round for the Caribbean side and once they avoid a blow-out at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, they will be the final side from Group B to advance and do battle with the top eight teams starting next week.
