West Indies are still in a search of the first win on this tour and the Indian team is standing in front of them to win this T20 match as well as the series at Kolkata. In the last 11, T20Is played between these 2 teams, India have completely outplayed Windies by winning 9 T20Is. The current series is all set to lay on the Eden Garden, Kolkata where Indian Skipper Rohit Sharma has staggering numbers with the bat. He smashed 40 runs from 19 balls only in the first match played here.

West Indies have power hitters in their squad but they couldn’t find a way while facing Indian leggies like Yuzi Chahal and Ravi Bishnoi in the first match. Indian team is now looking forward to utilizing those middle overs in the second game also which can help them to clinch the T20 series also at Eden Garden.

West Indies Preview

Except for Nicholas Pooran’s well-constructed knock with the bat at the middle order and Roston Chase’s superb spell in middle overs, West Indies were completely out of the game in the first T20 match against hosts. They will now try to come back strongly and in a search of their first win on this tour when they face the Indian side at Eden Garden again. Windies openers failed to give a good start to an inning and lost the first wicket of Brandon King in the first over of the match. The team’s leading run-scorer in the series against England, Nicholas Pooran played an important knock of 61 runs in 43 balls including 5 huge sixes. Captain Kieron Pollard added 24 runs in 19 balls at lower order and managed to put the team's 157 runs on the board.

Despite Roston Chase’s brilliant spell of 2 wickets for 14 runs in 4 overs, no other bowler could manage to put pressure on Indian batters. Indian batters easily handled the Windies’ bowling attack to chase the total with 7 balls remaining. West Indies’ overall team is looking strong on the paper but they failed to deliver their skill sets on the ground. Now, they will try to execute their plans well on the ground when they face hosts in the 2nd T20 match of the series at Eden Garden.

Key Players: Rovman Powell, Nicholas Pooran, Kyle Mayers.

West Indies Predicted Playing XI:

Kyle Mayers, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (VC, wk), Roston Chase, Rovman Powell, Akeal Hosein, Kieron Pollard (c), Romario Shepherd, Fabian Allen, Sheldon Cottrell, Odean Smith.
