Visakhapatnam, October 24 at 01:30 PM IST
All eyes are on Virat Kohli (9,919 runs in 204 innings) as the Indian skipper is on the brink of getting past his hero’s record of fastest to 10 thousand runs. The way he went about it in the first ODI, he can get the needed runs here.
Windies’ batting were up to the task but have a lot to ponder in bowling department. Most of their batsmen got starts, with Hetmyer slamming third hundred in his only tenth ODI appearance at Guwahati.
It seemed mayhem when India were batting in the first game but they have to be tighter with the ball. With bowling conceding more than 300, India can bring in Kuldeep for a pacer.
Pitch conditions: Visakhapatnam has been a high-scoring venue. Expect a run-fest.
India have announced a 12-man squad for the second ODI.
There is a possibility of Fabian Allen replacing Ashley Nurse and Keemo Paul or Alzarri Joseph getting in for Oshane Thomas.
India’s XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Ambati Rayudu, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni (wk), Ravindra Jadeja/Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammad Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed
Windies’ XI: Chandrapaul Hemraj, Kieran Powell, Shai Hope (wk), Shimron Hetmeyer, Marlon Samuels, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder (c), Ashley Nurse/Fabian Allen, Keemo Paul/Oshane Thomas/Alzarri Joseph, Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach
