West Indies aim for comeback
- India will hope to stifle West Indies batting
- West Indies continue poor run
India are in decent form as they look to take on West Indies in the second ODI having just won a thriller in the first game. Their batting looks on point while the bowling faltered. India have odds of 1.28 to win the second ODI.
West Indies, meanwhile, lost 0-3 to Bangladesh and succumbed to India in the first game to complete a 12-match losing streak against Test playing nations in ODIs. They have odds of 3.23 to pull off a win given their batting show, but it remains a tough ask.
Can India capitalise on West Indies’ form?
West Indies have struggled big time in ODIs against Full member countries, losing each of their last 12 ones including their latest against Bangladesh. They have also now lost 11 of their last 12 ODIs against India, a team they have struggled much against in recent times.
Our pick: India are a strong side with the bat. Back India at 1.28 to win this one!
The bowling misfired for India in the first game and they will be looking to bank on it to keep West Indies at bay in the second ODI. West Indies, on the other hand, will see it as the opening they need to test India.
Keep an eye on…
Shikhar Dhawan: Shikhar Dhawan is in form and missed out on a ton last game. He has an uncanny ability to make an impact in tough scenarios and with India missing big names, this will be a huge one to step up for Dhawan.
Shai Hope: West Indies’ middle-order lynchpin will be playing his 100th ODI and will be looking to add to his fine run of form in recent times in this format.
TIP: Shai Hope is in great form with the bat and will hope to make the big occasion count. Back Shai Hope at 6.12 to be the best match batter for West Indies!
