IND vs WI Dream11 team, Who will win India vs West Indies 2nd T20I Today Match Prediction February 18

Share

IND vs WI Today Match Prediction: Having pocketed the first T20I by 6 wickets, the Men in Blue would be hoping to seal the fate of the series in the second T20I scheduled to take place on February 18 at Eden Gardens. Skipper Rohit Sharma (40) was at his sensational best and credits to Suryakumar Yadav (34*) and all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer (24*) for playing explosive knocks to chase down 158. Losing the toss and being put to bat first was certainly a disadvantage for the West Indies, and their miseries only added with debutant Ravi Bishnoi grabbing 2/17. Among the visitors, Nicholas Pooran (61) looked in a good flow while all-rounder Rostom Chase (2/14) packed economical figures in the second innings. Another fiery contest can be very well anticipated between the competing sides in the second T20I.

IND vs WI Today Match Prediction

In the last outing, Ishan Kishan and Virat Kohli looked a bit uneasy at the crease, though the former managed to get 35 runs on board. Nonetheless, the duo is adept in the shortest format, and along with Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and Venkatesh Iyer could be banked to post a decent exhibition in the next fixture. Bowlingwise, Ravi Bishnoi would be looking to cash in on his streak alongside Yuzvendra Chahal in the second outing. The pace trio of Deepak Chahar, Harshal Patel and Bhuvneshwar Kumar would be raring to maximize on the conditions in the must-win duel. 

West Indies would be desperate to break even in the second outing. The tour’s been competitive for them, and few outcomes could’ve been different if not for faulty performances as a unit in clutch moments. With the ball, the likes of Romario Shepherd, Sheldon Cottrell, Odean Smith and spinner Akeal Hosein would be hoping to wind up an improved show.

Today match score: Both sides are skilled enough to change the momentum at any stage, so somewhere around 155-165 could be a challenging total in this outing. 

Today pitch report: The wicket’s got a good bounce and it’s a quick outfield as was visible from the last match. Batting shouldn’t be a problem as the dew factor is surely going to aid the batters, while spinners could make way for the wickets.
