IND vs WI Dream11 Team | India vs Windies 2nd T20
IND vs WI Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match
Lucknow, November 06 at 07:00 PM IST
India’s Twenty 20 record against most teams is excellent, but not so against the Windies. Since 2016, India’s have won 10 out of 13 bilateral T20I series they have been involved in while twice they have lost to Windies (in USA, 2016 & in Caribbean 2017). But the way Kolkata T20 panned out, India is about to improve their record against T20I World Champions.
On Sunday, Kolkata surface offered some purchase for the bowlers. India set the tone, sending half of the Windies side back for a less than 50. The tourists could not recover and set India a target of 110. In reply, India had a similar start losing four wickets for 45 runs. It was calmness of Dinesh Karthik that took the home side out of the slump and over the line, with a helping hand from debutant Krunal Pandya.
With India leading 1-0 in the three-match series, the onus will be on Windies to draw the series level. Windies’ batting let them down in the first game and must put a better show here to challenge India. On the other hand, India were on the money with the ball but stuttered with the bat to give Windies a sniff. They would look to do better with the bat to seal the series.
India win by five wickets, but boy were they made to work hard!
Oshane Thomas bowled a rapid spell, claiming 2/21, while captain Carlos Brathwaite took 2/11 but Dinesh Karthik's experience and Krunal Pandya's hitting saw India home. #INDvWI SCORE ⬇https://t.co/62bWHZv4lD pic.twitter.com/yxd9p6VUId
