WI vs IND Preview
- West Indies has dropped their previous seven home white-ball games in a row (6 ODIs & 1 T20I).
- India has won each of the first four games of the West Indies trip (3 ODIs & 1 T20I).
- In the previous 15 T20I encounters, India has a 13-2 win-loss record versus the West Indies.
At Warner Park in St. Kitts and Nevis, the second of five IT20 matches between West Indies and India gets underway on Monday. India thoroughly deserved to win the first game of the series by a margin of 68 runs because they were the superior team. At 10:30 local time, the game begins.
West Indies did not have one of their better T20I performances on Friday, and if they want to compete with India in this match, they will need to raise their performance bar.
Rohit Sharma’s innings at the top of the order was the foundation of India’s success in the opening game, and spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi proved to be far too strong for West Indies.

WI vs IND Match Toss Prediction
On Friday, the hosts won the toss and decided to field first. Regardless of who wins the toss, we anticipate seeing India in the field as this looked to place an unnecessary burden on their batting side.
WI vs IND Pitch Report
The pace and spin bowlers will find something on this pitch. Given the good speed with which the ball enters the bat, we anticipate a par score to be over 190.
West Indies Team News & Probable Playing XIs
On Friday, nothing really worked out for West Indies. Despite making his debut in this format, Alzarri Joseph gave up 18 runs in his first over, while Jason Holder’s elevation to the top of the order as a “pinch-hitter” only resulted in a duck off of four balls. In this game, we anticipate seeing the same starting XI with a changed batting order.

India Team News & Probable Playing XIs
On Friday, the visiting squad decided to use a spin-heavy approach, adding Ravichandran Ashwin to the lineup along with Ravi Bishnoi and Ravindra Jadeja. We anticipate all three to keep their positions despite this wicket’s lack of significant spinning, and India will pick an unchanged XI.

India is the favorite to win this match.
West Indies never truly seemed to be in control, despite the fact that India lost wickets at regular intervals in the first game of the series. We anticipate seeing three more spinners for this game after the visitors used the ball to turn the screw. In general, we are betting on India to win.
