India vs West Indies, 2nd ODI: Team India Predicted XI

India vs West Indies


CRICDOT DESK : Already 10 up in the three match series, India face the West Indies in the second ODI at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Wednesday. The opening match marked the start of Rohit Sharma`s tenure as fulltime white ball captain with the hosts coasting to a six wicket win. Chasing a target of 177 runs, India reached 178 for four in 28 overs with Rohit smashing 60 runs off 51 balls. Meanwhile, Yuzvendra Chahal was also in fantastic form, bagging a four wicket haul to help India bowl out the West Indies for 176 in 43.5 overs.

The hosts will be aiming to take an unassailable 20 win on Wednesday. This is the prediction of the final start XI of Team India in the second ODI.

Rohit Sharma: After winning his first match as a full-time white ball skipper, Rohit aims to build his good hitting form. He also shattered 10 4 and maximum during his first tap at ODI.

KL Rahul: Rahul attended an Indian camp after the first ODI and was found training on Monday. The deputy captain was unable to play in the first match for personal reasons. He wants a good performance on Wednesday.

Virat Kohli: Despite being cheaply fired in the first game, Kohli aims to improve performance and hits the elusive three-digit mark that has avoided him for over two years. He could only record eight runs from four balls in the previous game.

Rishabh Pant: The wicket-keeper batter came out before actually making a difference with the bat in the first ODI. After a strong performance in South Africa, the pants are aiming to get back on track.

Suryakumar Yadav: Suryakumar has forged an undefeated partnership with Deepak Hooda to help India cross the finish line on Sunday. He scored 34 runs off 36 balls, including five fours.

Deepak Hooda: Hooda was in good form on his Team India debut and played an unbeaten knock of 26 runs off 32 balls. He also registered two fours and helped India chase down the target without much fuss.

Washington Sundar: Sundar bagged three wickets in nine overs during the first ODI, conceding 30 runs. He didn’t have to come and bat, but his allround skills will be pivotal for India in the next match.

Navdeep Saini: Saini also returned to training and was found online on Monday. He missed his first ODI after being isolated. If Shah Dal Takul gives way, he will have a chance at the second ODI.

Mohammed Siraj: Siraj manages to win a wicket on his first ODI and will add more to his wicket list on Wednesday.

Yuzvendra Chahal: Chahar, the player in the first ODI match, recorded a distance of 4 wickets and was essential to the victory. He will be an obvious pick for the team management.

Prasidh Krishna: Krishna put in a matured display in the first ODI and took two wickets off 10 overs, conceding only 29 runs.
