India vs Windies 2018: 2nd ODI, Visakhapatnam – Windies Predicted Playing XI; So, how do you rate the performance of Windies on the other night at Guwahati? Perhaps, you might call it a brave show. But, the brilliance of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli poured cold water on their hopes. However, the batting performance in the first innings might have lifted their souls in the dugout. Meanwhile, we try to figure out Windies Predicted Playing XI for the second ODI.

Here is Windies Predicted XI for second ODI at Visakhapatnam:

1. Kieran Powell:

The late entrant into the squad Kieran Powell made a fine comeback into the side with a decent 51-run knock. He dealt the fast-bowling attack quite brilliantly to knock those crucial runs in the powerplay overs. Most probably, he will find the place once again in the team for the second ODI at Visakhapatnam.

The southpaw Chandrapaul Hemraj didn’t have the best of the debuts at Guwahati. However, he might be retained again to play in the second ODI fixture. Besides his batting, he can also deliver the goods with the ball, which makes him the solid candidate to be retained. Hopefully, the youngster would come good for the team.

3. Shai Hope:

Windies wicketkeeper Shai Hope once again got the start but failed to convert it into a decent knock. The same thing is happening with the youngster right from the Test format of the game. However, the management would once again keep their hopes on Shai Hope for the upcoming fixture. The Windies’ graph shows that Hope’s performance makes a solid impact on the result for the team.

The experienced campaigner in the Windies camp Marlon Samuels fared pretty poorly at Guwahati. He was dismissed for a duck when he failed to tackle Yuzvendra Chahal’s delivery. However, the team would retain his services once again by hoping him to perform better. Besides that, Samuels has a glorious record while playing in India.

5. Shimron Hetmyer:

The last match centurion will be retained without any ray of doubt. The stylish swashbuckling southpaw had knocked the ball brilliantly to send the fear down India’s spine. He will once again be the cynosure of the eyes when he takes the field at Visakhapatnam in the second ODI of the India vs Windies 2018 series.

Yet another player, who got the decent start but failed to make it big. He started pretty cautiously and settled in the middle with four boundaries to his name. However, the right-handed all-rounder will get one more chance to show his class to the world.

7. Jason Holder:

The skipper is fully-fit and will continue to lead the team at Vizag as well. As always, he has been decent with his numbers in the batting and bowling departments of the game. However, he looked clueless when Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were toying with his bowling setup.

8. Fabien Allen:

The right-handed all-rounder might get the debut cap at Vizag. He is expected to replace Ashley Nurse in the side, who fared pretty poorly and looked venom-less in his bowling. Meanwhile, Fabien Allen has got the juice in him to deliver the goods in both departments of the game, which presses his case further as well. Thus, he makes the cut for Windies Predicted Playing XI.

9. Devendra Bishoo:

The leg-spinner has done well to retain his place in the side. Though he bowled at 7.2 runs per over, he looked like troubling the batsmen with odd deliveries. Besides bowling, he has also been at his best in batting as well.

10. Kemar Roach

The experienced campaigner is back in the side. The fast bowling all-rounder has been the consistent performer for the team in the recent past across the formats. Despite going for the runs, he created half chances for the team. The team management would hope the right-handed bowler to come good.

The debutant grabbed all the attention with his brilliant display of fast bowling with the new ball. However, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma played some brilliant cricket to make the youngster bowl off the radar. All in all, it would be interesting to see how the youngster comes up with the new set of plans in the second ODI. Therefore, he is in Windies Predicted Playing XI.
