Fantasy Cricket Tips for today’s cricket match: IND vs WI
The ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium has recorded an average score of 283 in ODIs. The last time India faced West Indies in Vishakapatnam, fans were delighted. India scored 312/6 with Virat Kohli scoring 157*. Shai Hope led the West Indies with an unbeaten 123 to tie the match.
Both captains will look to win the toss and elect to field first as teams chasing have won five out of the eight games played at this venue. In the first ODI, Indian top order failed to perform with KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli dismissed cheaply. However, Virat Kohli has a good track record on this venue and expect him to play another good inning.
Rishabh Pant (71 of 69 balls) has been inconsistent with the bat, but he built a 114-run partnership with Shreyas Iyer (70 of 88 balls) to help India reach a good total. In the absence of the Pandya brothers, Ravinder Jadeja and Kedar Jadhav are expected to step up take India to over the line.
Yuzvender Chahal is expected to return in place of Shivam Dube. Kuldeep Yadav was economical in his ten overs. He conceded 45 runs. But the Indian skipper will want him to deliver with a few wickets today. Despite being a little expensive and conceding 1/57 in 9 overs, Mohammed Shami is the main danger for the WI in seam bowling.
Deepak Chahar will also look to continue his excellent performances to help keep the hard-hitting WI batting order in check.
West Indian’s batting lineup has stepped up their game towards the end of 2019.
Wicketkeeper opener Shai Hope hit an unbeaten 102 in the first ODI at Chennai. Shermyon Hetmyar scored a brilliant knock of 139 on an unpredictable Chennai surface, and the form he is in, you can bet on him producing another such inning. Nicholas Pooran also scored 39 of 32 balls and helped WI to get over the mark in the first ODI.
Kiron Pollard and Rostan Chase did not get a chance to play in the first ODI, largely because of Hope and Hetymar. They will be rearing to go big tonight. With the ball, Sheldon Cortrell, Keemo Paul (2/40), Alzaari Joseph (2/45), and Pollard (1/28) picked up wickets in crucial times during the first ODI. They’ll have to repeat their performances to avoid losing tonight.
Virat Kohli and Co look favourite to win the second ODI and level the series. Skipper Kohli himself has a good track record here. He scored 157 here against WI in 2018.
