IND vs WI, 2nd ODI: Match Preview, Playing XI, Match Details, Pitch Report & Match Prediction

India vs West Indies, Six Sports

Yesterday, India won a rather close game against the West Indies. Mohammed Siraj just about managed to win it for India while defending 15 runs in the last over.

India won the match by a slim margin of just 3 runs. Now, the visitors need to be very wary of the hosts as the latter have proven that they can be deadly with both bat and ball.

In the first innings, India helped themselves to a target of 308/7 on the backs of Shubman Gill, Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer. The main concern for India however became the tail, which could not do much to add to the score.

At first, it looked like India would get to a 350+ score, but West Indies managed to peg India back in the middle and end overs with some fiery bowling from the pacers and spinners alike.

West Indies for their part, have now lost their seventh match this year in succession and would now have to play better to ensure that they level out the series.

Their bowlers did a superb job in the first innings by limiting India to just over 300.

Meanwhile, their batsmen too played a good part in ensuring that West Indies always remained in the chase and that’s how they could get past their third successive 300-run chase but fell short of just 3 runs in the end.

Some of the players to watch out for in tomorrow’s encounter will be Shai Hope and Shardul Thakur.

Pitch Report

In the first ODI, the pitch remained rather flat and made it an exciting contest for both bat and ball. The conditions tomorrow should be pretty much the same. The weather would remain clear and the temperature would rise to 31 degrees celsius.

IND vs WI, 2nd ODI Probable Playing XI:

India

For India, it is highly unlikely that Dhawan would be making any changes to the side. After their 3-run win yesterday, the team would remain pretty much the same. Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the 2nd ODI as well due to a knee injury. Usually, India prefers not to make any unforced changes until the series is alive and that’s why they will likely retain the same team.

Predicted Playing XI:

Shikhar Dhawan (c), Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson (wk), Deepak Hooda, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna

West Indies

The Windies on the other hand too will not be making any changes as their batters and bowlers proved their mettle in the 1st ODI. They will also be retaining the same XI for the 2nd ODI. Their only miss out however will be Jason Holder who is down with Covid-19.

Predicted Playing XI:

Shai Hope (wk), Kyle Mayers, Shamarh Brooks, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Rovman Powell, Akeal Hosein, Romario Shepherd, Alzarri Joseph, Jayden Seales, Gudakesh Motie
