IND vs WI, 2nd T20I Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction

India is expected to win against West Indies.

India has been dominant against West Indies in the ODI series and won all the matches convincingly. They have now registered 14 consecutive bilateral ODI series wins against West Indies. They are clear favorites to win this fixture given the current form they are in.

On the other hand, West Indies will definitely need a miracle of performance from both departments in order to emerge on top.

Top Batsman for India- Rohit Sharma (3.60)

Rohit Sharma was in red hot form in the first T20I smashing 40 off 19 with a strike rate of 210. His inning included 4 fours and three sixes. So far he amassed 3237 Runs in 120 T20I and will be looking to lead from the front in this contest. He is a player that is most likely expected to go for a demolishing knock against West Indies.

Top Batsman for West Indies- Nicholas Pooran (4.33)

Nicholas Pooran got an early chance on the innings in the last outing and utilized it properly and hammered 61 runs from 43 balls with the help of 4 fours and 5 sixes. He has been the sole contributor for West Indies on this tour. In the shorter format, he has amassed 1070 runs in 55 matches with a strike rate close to 128.

Top Bowler for India- Yuzvendra Chahal (3.40)

Chahal is a player who shines in big matches taking wickets at much-needed crucial moments. Chahal has already bagged 5 scalps in the 2 ODIs with an economy of 4.73. The leggie scalped 4/49 in the 1st ODI and proved to be a game-changer for India. He took the wicket of Shai Hope in the 2nd ODI who was keeping West Indies afloat in the match. He is a great pick for the betting players and is expected to give guaranteed returns in the 2nd T20I.

Top Bowler for West Indies- Roston Chase (5.50)

Roston Chase varied his pace quite well in the 1st T20I and didn’t give any room for the Indian batters to go after him. He returned with the figures of 2/14 in his 4 overs. The 29-year-old has amassed 52 runs and 2 Wickets in 4 T20Is. He will be looking upon improving his figures in this T20I.
