Since January 2016, top three India Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan have scored 1449 international one-day runs against the West Indies with an average of 79.63. They will try to play this advantage against the hosts in the second ODI in Trinidad.
2nd ODI will take place today at Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad
11 August, 9:30 m local time.
After India won the Twenty20 International series 3-0, it seemed ready to turn that form into a cricket over 50 at the first ODI in Guyana. However, the game was washed out with West Indies at 54/1 in 13 overs. This is now a must for both sides, as the winning team have a decisive 1-0 lead in the final.
West Indies, who have not won any games in the series, are hoping for a positive outcome in this ODI. In the last seven games at Queen’s Park Oval, they suffered six ODI losses, four against India. Jason Holder and his team will definitely improve on Sunday’s record.
While Chris Gayle struggled in the first ODI – he was fired for a 4:31 ball – he will have extra motivation for the game: The left-hander is only seven runs away from replacing Brian Lara as top scorer in the West Indies ODI cricket.
For India, skipper Kohli, who has scored the most runs against the West Indies since January 2012 with 1332 at 78.35, will be the key to the visitors. Kuldeep Yadav, who claimed Gayle’s wicket in the first game, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the most visited wicket taker in Port of Spain, are likely to lead the bowling attack.

Virat Kohli: “Some of the Caribbean’s rope lengths can really put you to the test, some pitches may have good pace and jumping ability, but some will be slower and you’ll have to be patient Good looking and playing better Cricket will benefit and both teams will try to do that in the coming days. “

The forecast predicts cloudy conditions in the first half of the game, which may help the team bowling first. However, captains may be tempted to strike first as teams defending overall have won four out of the last six games played at the venue. A score of 300 has only been exceeded twice in the last decade, both times by India.
