IND vs WI Match Preview: After posting 207/5 on the board in Hyderabad, Windies had a good hold of the game until the skipper Virat Kohli stood up and took the charge to guide India to another win-the highest T20 total chased down by India. Kohli hammered unbeaten 94 runs off just 50 deliveries as India turned out victorious with6 wickets and 8 balls to spare. KL Rahul (62 off 40) deliveries and Rishabh Pant (18 of 9) were the other positives from India's run chase but it the was the Indian skipper who was magnificent in pulling out India's highest run chase in T20I with such elegance. The two teams will now meet at Greensfield Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram tonight for the second T20I.
Here, we have come up with the Grand League scenarios for IND vs WI match.
West Indies vs India, 08th December, 07:00 PM (IST), Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram.
India Squad: Virat Kohli (c), Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Lokesh Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Shivam Dube, Sanju Samson, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar.
West Indies Squad: Kieron Pollard (c), Khary Pierre, Jason Holder, Sheldon Cottrell, Evin Lewis, Hayden Walsh, Brandon King, Keemo Paul, Fabian Allen, Shimron Hetmyer, Sherfane Rutherford, Lendl Simmons, Denesh Ramdin, Nicholas Pooran, Kesrick Williams.
There's a race between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli took his runs tally in T20Is to 2,544 after slamming 50-ball 94* and is just three runs away from Rohit Sharma’s tally of 2,547 runs who is currently the leading run-scorer in the T20Is. Also, KL Rahul is fine form and has slammed back to back the fifties. Also, Windies hasn't managed a win in the last seven T20Is played against India.
The Carribeans are the current T20I champions and they gave a slight glimpse of it in Hyderabad in the previous game after posting mammoth total of 207/5 on the board. Had they been more disciplined with the balls as Kieron Pollard reckoned, the scenario would be different. With plenty of power-hitters in Evin Lewis, N Pooran, S Hetmyer, Lendl Simmons, K Pollard and J Holder Windies can't be written off T20Is.
Unlike Hyderabad, Greenfields Stadium in Thiruvanthapuram will have more turn and assist spinners. Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kharry Piere and Hayden Walsh Jr can be a feasible bet in this scenario.
