IND vs WI: India Playing 11 for the second Test against West Indies Prediction
IND vs WI: India team had a dominating outing in the first game at Dominica. They thrashed the opposition by a massive margin of an innings and 141 runs and took a 1-0 lead in the series. They would be hoping to close the series on the same note and would want to win the second game as well, which will take place from 20th July at Port of Spain.
Talking about the Playing 11, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma will no doubt be there at the top along with Yashasvi Jaiswal, who had a superb start to his career. Both the batters smashed a magnificent ton in the first game and are expected to continue at the top. Shubman Gill didn’t have a great outing at 3 but is likely to retain the place and would be looking to make a mark.
Virat Kohli will be at No.4 no doubt whereas Ajinkya Rahane, who has been appointed as the vice-captain of the team, will be there at No.5. Kohli spent good time in the middle whereas Rahane failed to impress and would be looking to make most of the opportunity in next game. Ishan Kishan was decent with the gloves in his debut match and scored unbeaten 1 runs with the bat therefore it is likely that he will continue.
The duo of Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin wreaked havoc across the West Indies batting lineup and were the main reason behind India’s win. They will no doubt be there as all-rounders in the team. If the pitch will be like the first game then it is expected that Axar Patel might play or else Shardul Thakur will play.
Mohammed Siraj can get rested for the game and the team might bring in Navdeep Saini in his place. Jaydev Unadkat on the other hand is expected to retain his place.
