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.
Probable Playing XIs
India: Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Venkatesh Iyer, Deepak Chahar/Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Yuzvendra Chahal
West Indies: Brandon King/Shai Hope, Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Rovman Powell, Kieron Pollard (c), Roston Chase, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Odean Smith, Fabian Allen, Sheldon Cottrell
From the Indian batting line-up, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, and Ishan Kishan remain top choices. Virat Kohli can also be included as he is expected to bounce back after a failure in the first game. From Windies camp, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, and Rovman Powell can be good picks. Jason Holder is expected to be back and he should also make it into the fantasy team. From the bowling department, Ravi Bishnoi, Odean Smith, Harshal Patel, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar look good options.
