    IND vs WI Live: West Indies opt to bowl!

    West Indies skipper Shai Hope won the toss and opted to bowl first against India in the second ODI. Hardik Pandya is the skipper for the guests.

    IND vs WI Live: Chalenge awaits Indian batters

    Facing Gudakesh Motie’s orthodox left-arm spin and Yannic Cariah’s leg breaks won’t be the most difficult proposition but not the easiest one either. The Indian batters haven’t exactly set the stage on fire when facing spinners on turners and this won’t be a bad test for the team if the conditions of first ODI is replicated.

    IND vs WI Live: Poor show from Windies batters

    Gone are those golden days of West Indies cricket and the popularity of cricket in the islands has hit an all-time nadir after its non-qualification for the ODI World Cup in India. The propensity to play T20 game in a 50-over contest was very much on show with the kind of indiscreet shot selections that got them into a tangle against Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav in the first ODI.

    IND vs WI Live: Surya needs improved performance

    For Suryakumar Yadav, it will be imperative that he can replicate his T20 form in 50 over cricket. Thursday was a golden opportunity and he did look good before a sweep shot off Motie brought about his downfall. Surya knows that his place in the XI could be doubtful if Shreyas Iyer gets fit and if KL Rahul returns, he might find it difficult to make it to the 15-member squad unless, he scores some significant runs against Pakistan in the Asia Cup, which will then seal his spot in the side.

  • 18:12 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Mukesh’s place in XI seems certain

    Mukesh Kumar as a reserve (fifth) pacer should make it to the squad behind Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Shardul Thakur. His discipline, in terms of line and length, across formats has been exemplary and it will be difficult to drop him unless India picks that extra spinner in the 15-man squad.

  • 18:03 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Kishan to bat down the order

    Ishan Kishan had scored 52 runs off 46 balls as an opener in the first ODI, helping India chase down 115 runs against West Indies. Despite his impressive fifty, he is set to bat in the middle order, a place he will have to vacate during Asia Cup in Sri Lanka if KL Rahul happens to make a comeback.

    IND vs WI Live: India aim for a better batting show

    Skipper Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid did face a minor hiccup while trying out the middle-order batters upfront on a track that became a raging turner during the second session but a meager target of 115 meant that things were smooth for the better part. However, one can vouch with a degree of certainty that even if India once again chases a small target, Rohit Sharma will indeed come out with Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli will be seen padded to come at one drop.

    IND vs WI Live: India eye less experimentation

    With 11 more matches left before the opening World Cup game against Australia in Chennai on October 8 (as per the current schedule), India would aim at a settled combination and hence too much experimentation might not be what the doctor would order.

  • 17:45 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: Focus on India’s batting order!

    The way India shuffled their batting order to give chances to youngsters in the paltry chase of 115 runs against West Indies was surprising. However, it will be interesting to see if we see anything similar in the second ODI today. 

  • 17:31 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live: India with 1-0 lead

    India registered a comfortable five-wicket victory over West Indies in the first ODI of the three-match series on Thursday. They will be looking to repeat their heroics in today’s match in order to seal the series.
