After the washed-out first ODI in Port of Spain yesterday, West Indies and India will come out for the second match of the three-match series in the same city tomorrow. Rain could play spoil sport once again. India batted for close to 40 overs in the match. They managed to get batting practice against the innocuous looking bowlers from West Indies, in which Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan impressed. The performance will keep them as favorites. But if the match is truncated due to rain, the chances of West Indies will be boosted.
Preview – West Indies
Skipper Jason Holder and leg spinner Devendra Bishoo shone with the ball. Both maintained a very good line and length and troubled the Indian batsmen at times. If West Indies want to offer fight to India, the rest of the bowlers too raise their performance and their fielding needs improvement too. The performance in the first match did not give much to put one’s money in favor of them in cricket betting.
Preview – India
India had a solid opening partnership in the first match. Both Dhawan and Rahane scored half centuries. But the middle order failed to up the scoring rate after the opening partnership was broken. Still, the team management will be happy with the efforts. Virat Kohli too got good batting practice as he remained unbeaten on 32 off 47 balls. India will be confident after this effort. They will be praying for rain to stay away from Port of Spain tomorrow.
Our Prediction: India should win this match easily. Check Odds on India.
