West Indies look to regroup
- India under Rohit Sharma a ruthless unit
- West Indies need batting to click
India have won 27 out of 32 T20Is under Rohit Sharma, including 15 of the last 16 matches. In a fickle format, that is an incredible record to boast for a captain. The ruthless manner in which India beat West Indies in the first game gives them odds of 1.44 to win the second T20I.
West Indies again have lower chances of winning the match – they have odds of 2.74. Noteworthy, under Nicholas Pooran, West Indies lost four of their last six T20Is and looked well short with the bat against a quality Indian bowling attack.
India experimented with Suryakumar Yadav at the top and it’s something that could continue this match despite the sheer number of players fighting for that one spot. India might also want to give Deepak Hooda and Sanju Samson a look-in.
Our pick: India have a strong bowling attack that’s well suited for the West Indies pitches. Back India at 1.44 to win this one!
Rohit Sharma’s incredible record in this format is a result of India backing players consistently to bring the best out of them.
Keep an eye on…
Suryakumar Yadav: The T20 World Cup is almost here and Suryakumar Yadav appears to be a regular in the setup with his latest hundred in England. The move to open with him was odd, though, but the Mumbai Indians star will want to establish himself further.
Nicholas Pooran: West Indies need to ward off India’s spin attack and the best way to do it is for Pooran to take control of the middle overs.
TIP: Rohit Sharma smashed a brilliant fifty last game. Back Rohit Sharma at 4.14 to be the best match batter for India!
