Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - West Indies v India 2nd T20I
The second game of the three-match T20I series between West Indies and India will be played in the USA at the Central Broward Stadium, Lauderhill in Florida.
The first match of the T20I series was quite a strange one as both teams struggled to get going. The pitch was a huge factor in the game, as it will continue to be, given all the rain around check out full scorecard of 1st T20I
The surface has become very tacky because of which playing shots is very difficult. The players have to assess the conditions better and realise that 130-140 could be a winning total on this surface and they should try not to go very hard from the outset.
India won the toss and decided to bowl first in the first game and the match was pretty much decided in the first powerplay when West Indies were reduced to 33-5. A fighting 49-run knock from Kieron Pollard also could not help the team much as all that the Windies could manage was 95.
Navdeep Saini was sensational for India on debut and picked up three wickets, while conceding just 17 runs and ended up being the Man of the Match. Bhuvneshwar Kumar also picked up two.
India did not start well and lost both Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant quite early. Manish Pandey and Krunal Pandya were then both bowled by Keemo Paul after getting set.
Ultimately, Ravi Jadeja and Washington Sundar took the team home by four wickets. Sheldon Cottrell, Sunil Narine and Keemo Paul picked up two wickets each for West Indies.
India picked a strange playing XI for the first match with only five proper batsmen, but having won the match, it does not make any sense to change the team now.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
West Indies- John Campbell, Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Carlos Brathwaite, Sunil Narine, Keemo Paul, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas
India- Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Washington Sundar, Navdeep Saini, K Khaleel Ahmed
