Team India will seek to clinch the three-match ODI series against the West Indies as they gear up for the second game at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on Saturday, July 29. Rohit Sharma and Co. showcased their dominance in the first ODI, outplaying the hosts by five wickets. In addition, India began the multi-format series against the Windies with a 1-0 win in the two-match Test series. 

After winning the toss, team India invited the West Indies to bat first in the opening ODI. With their pace and spin attack, India bundled out the hosts for a paltry score of 114 runs. Ishan Kishan, who opened the innings for India in accordance with their revised batting order, was key in the tourists’ victory, smashing a match-winning fifty.

Team India are banking on their all-star squad to deliver yet another stunning performance in the second ODI. Notably, they are expected to rely on their normal batting lineup for the upcoming game. West Indies, on the other hand, must revamp and put up a valiant effort in order to stay alive in the series.

Although the Kensington Oval is renowned for having a balanced track, the batters had trouble scoring during the opening ODI, which ended up being a low-scoring encounter. Due to the slowness of the surface, spinners will gain advantages as in the first match.
