Team news


India would be disappointed with the way they bowled and fielded in the first ODI. Thus, one may see a few changes in playing XI of the second ODI.

Ravindra Jadeja was way too expensive in the opening fixture of the series. It is expected that Yuzvendra Chahal might replace Jadeja and run his magic along with Kuldeep Yadav once again.

In Chennai ODI, Kedhar Jadhav and Shivam Dube also failed to perform as per the expectations. Hence, one could see either of them getting replaced by Manish Pandey.

Probable XI: Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (w), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav/Shivam Dube, Deepak Chahar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal.

West Indies

The Caribbean’s, on the other hand, are looking settled, and they might not disturb the winning combination. Evin Lewis’s injury, however, is still a worrying sign for the tourists.

Possible XI: Shai Hope(w), Sunil Ambris, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Roston Chase, Kieron Pollard (c), Jason Holder, Keemo Paul, Hayden Walsh, Alzarri Joseph, Sheldon Cottrell.
