Windies tour of India, 2018
India vs Windies 2nd ODI Match Preview
Kohli’s masterclass and Rohit’s exuberance bridled the Caribbeans as they were left with a demeaning defeat by 8 wickets in the first ODI of the 5 match series.
Shimron Hetmyer’s blazing ton of 106 runs from 78 balls which included 6 towering sixes and 6 fours was not enough to stop the number two ranked side in the world from winning yet another one-day game.
It was a day thoroughly dominated by the batsmen from either side as a total of 648 runs were scored in the day but, Yuzvendra Chahal still managed to notify his presence with 3 for 41 in his quota of 10 overs. The other India bowlers went for more than 6 runs per over but the leggie had a different day in the office altogether.
Windies skipper, on the other hand, was not too disheartened by his side’s performance and was all praised for his batting unit who put up a good score on the board, but at the same time also mentioned that they were 220-30 runs short and has hoped that his team will rectify these mistakes in the next game. Will the Windies be able to put a defiant show at Vizag or India will continue their winning home run? We will get the answers on October 24 at Visakhapatnam.
Venue- Dr Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam
Matchday- October 24, Wednesday at 01:30 PM IST

In wicketkeeper, both MS Dhoni and Shai Hope are good options, but considering the form the Indian batsmen are going through, we suggest you to pick Shai Hope as he will bat up the order an will get plenty of overs to bat.
Indian top-order is blazing guns, so you can easily pick any from Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Ambati Rayudu. As far as Windies are concerned, Shimron Hetmyer is their prime batsman along with opener Kieran Powell.
We would suggest you to go for Ravindra Jadeja and Jason Holder as both these players have great potential with both bat and ball.
Khaleel Ahmed showed some spark in the last game and Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers in the last ODI. Kemar Roach will be a better pick form Windies as Oshane Thomas might not get a game after his poor performance in the last match. Devendra Bishoo is also another option here.
