WI vs IND, 2nd ODI



Rohit Sharma-led Team India dominated the Hosts WI in the first ODI of the 3-match ODI series by beating them by 5 wickets on Thursday. After the shock exit from the World Championship Series, all eyes were on the Maroon army as WI try and rebuild for the upcoming events. However, WI will not be happy with how it started as they were humbled by the Indian Team at Kensington Oval. The second match of the ODI series is set to take place at the same venue on Saturday, 29 July. The Hosts will be eyeing to fight back in this contest to level up the series by 1-1 against Men in Blue.

Shai Hope-led WI looked like a shadow of themselves for the remaining matches. Once feared in the white ball cricket, was humbled in their backyard by the solid Indian side, already 1-0 down, West Indies will look to put on a fight in the last two matches, as WI look to make a comeback in the ODI series.

With all the hope on this Indian Team to win the World Championship Series as the host nation, all eyes were on them as they crushed the Caribbean's hopes in the last encounter. However, WI still does have a lot of work to do as the batting was extremely disappointing and they even failed to play 50 overs.

After winning the toss and opting to bowl first, IND made a fantastic start with the ball. The bowling department looked sharp and bundled out the WI batting lineup for 114 runs. The spinners ran through the batting lineup with Kuldeep Yadav picking up 4 for 6 runs and Jadeja also scalping 3 wickets as well by conceding 37 runs.

Pitch and Weather Report

This venue isn’t the best batting pitch as the ball doesn’t come to the bat nicely due to varying pace and bounce. Although the spinners will enjoy bowling on this pitch as the surface support sharp turns. 

The sky will be overcast on the matchday which will make it more difficult for the batters. Bowlers will have to step forward on this venue. A score of 280 runs will be enough for the side batting first.

Match Prediction

The Hosts are currently struggling with their sluggish form in the ODI format. Their batters and bowlers have been inconsistent in the last couple of months which hurdled them to get disqualified from the ODI World Series 2023. Indian players are in a more dynamic gaming environment with ample talents which makes them the favourites to win this match. We say India to win the 2nd ODI as well.
