India vs West Indies, WI Playing XI vs IND (Predicted), 2nd T20I, India Tour Of West Indies 2022. India will play against West Indies in the 2nd T20I on 1st August 2022 (Monday) at Warner Park, Basseterre on the island of St Kitts. The match will begin at 8 pm IST, with the toss at 7.30 pm IST.

Having clinched the first game comfortably, head coach Rahul Dravid will hope that his side can rally and clinch a 2-0 lead in the series on Monday. Despite the win, however, India had some pressing concerns, especially considering the form of Shreyas Iyer.

The KKR skipper has struggled over the past couple of months, and the team management will have to make a tough call with Sanju Samson and Deepak Hooda available. The KKR skipper managed a four-ball duck which triggered an India collapse before Dinesh Karthik resurrected the Indian innings.

Tarouba’s Brian Lara Cricket Stadium hosted its first-ever international match on 29 July. The Men in Blue were propelled by skipper Rohit Sharma’s 44-ball 64 as well as yet another vital contribution from finisher Dinesh Karthik (41 not out off 19 balls), posting a commanding 190/6 after opting to bat. The visitors restricted West Indies to a low score of 122 runs and registered a victory by 68 runs margin.

West Indies are going through a rough patch in the white ball formats and will need to take inspiration from their spirited performances to make a comeback. They will look for an elusive win that will change the fortunes of their team and will give them much-needed hope moving ahead.

West Indies came out in an attacking mindset but their batters failed to cross the 20-run mark in the match. Shamarh Brooks, Kyle Mayers, and Nicholas Pooran looked good in the short stay in the crease. 6 of the top-7 batters excluding Jason Holder, who didn’t trouble the scorers, hit a six each but kept losing wickets throughout the match.

Keemo Paul, Alzarri Joseph, and Jason Holder took 4 wickets between them but went for 120 runs in their 10 overs. Akeal Hosein was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4-0-14-1 in the 1st T20I match and Obed McCoy bowled decently in the death overs and power play. They might bring in Dominic Drakes or Romario Shepherd in this match.
