Our Prediction is that India will win the 2nd T20, despite the fact the West Indies began as favorites for the T20 series.
It was a bad game for the West Indies in their last T20 against India. The bowlers of the India team did a great job and managed to stop the strong batting line of West Indies. It was not an easy win for the home team in the previous game, when they lost 5 wickets during the run chase, as Dinesh Karthik and Krunal Pandya managed to help them win this match.
West Indies’ lack of coordination during the last T20 encounter was unexpected for all of us, it was even surprising for themselves. The West Indies team will give their best and beyond to in the 2nd T20, they need to live up to the expectations for a World Champion in the T20 format. Seems the pressure of these high expectations is not helping them at all.
India will start this game comfortably as winners from the 1st T20 match, played at Eden Gardens, Kolkota. The home team’s victory by 5 wickets in the last encounter showed how confident the team is and ready to take on any team in any format. The success for the India team in the 2nd T20 will he highly dependent on the opening partnership between Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan.
Predicted 11 for the India team in the 2nd T20 against West Indies: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Krunal Pandya, Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah
WEST INDIES PREVIEW
West Indies team did not live up to the expectations in the 1st T20. They have a lot to prove in the 2nd game, so they will come in hard on the India team.They would need to have a top batting line up if they want to level up the series. The batters’ performance will be decisive for the success of the West Indies team.
Predicted 11 for the West Indies team in the 2nd T20 against India: Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, SO Hetmyer, Keiron Pollard, Rovman Powell, FA Allen, Craig Brathwaite, O Thomas, KA Paul, K Pierre, Dinesh Ramdin
