Trinidad: Following the abandonment of 1st ODI due to rain in Guyana, both India and West Indies will face each other in the second ODI match when they meet at Queen’s Park Oval in Port Of Spain today.
The match is scheduled to begin at 7 pm (IST) today.
While India had already won the T20I series with a clean sweep, the Carribean team is yet to prove themselves.
After a rain-affected first One-Day International (ODI) between India and the West Indies, the two teams will be hoping that the rain stays away from the second ODI.
For India, the batting looks solid at the top with Shikhar Dhawan coming back to join Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli.
For West Indies, after the loss in the T20I series, it will all be about playing for pride as they are considered a better outfit in the limited-overs format. Also, with Gayle playing his last series for the Windies should add to the motivation factor for the hosts.
Notably, the first ODI was abandoned due to rain after 13 overs at Guyana on last Thursday.
India: Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kedar Jadhav, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Navdeep Saini.
