the grammar of ' do you think' in a complex sentence?

Postby leojames » Fri Nov 15, 2013 2:16 pm

is it ' how many cups do you think the team will get in next decade?' or
'how many cups do you think will the team get in next decade?'

Kind of confused. Any help?

The first is correct.

Statement, not question, word-order is required in a subordinate clause.
