Preview

India and West Indies will lock horns in the second T20I at the same venue i.e. Eden Gardens. The first match was easily taken by the hosts following fine bowling and batting performance. The visitors, on the other hand, found their star in Nicholas Pooran who broke the shackles and scored a pretty-looking half-century. The other batters, however, could not do much as Windies settled for a below-par total (keeping the dew in mind). The second game will not see much change in approach from India and thus, Windies will have to fight hard to register a victory.
