Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - West Indies v India 2nd ODI
The second game of the three-match ODI series between West Indies and India will be played at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain in Trinidad.
The first match of the ODI series between West Indies and India was a damper as only 13 overs could be bowled.
Because of play stopping and resuming time and again, West Indies could not get any real moment through their innings as they started on a terribly slow note. The opening spell of India's new-ball bowlers, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammad Shami was on point. They were probing with their line and lengths and did not allow the West Indies batsmen to break free.
However, India's first change bowler Khaleel Ahmed failed to maintain the same skill level as opener Evin Lewis got stuck into him. Both teams are likely not to make any changes to their playing XI as any play was hardly possible in the first match.
Chris Gayle will continue to open the innings for West Indies, with Shai Hope, Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer following him. Jason Holder will lead the side with Sheldon Cottrell and Kemar Roach being their leading bowlers.
Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja will be the two spinners in action for India with Kedar Jadhav available if need be. Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be the leading pacers, while Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan will to open the innings.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
West Indies- Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Roston Chase, Jason Holder, Carlos Brathwaite, Fabian Allen, Sheldon Cottrell, Kemar Roach
