India Vs West Indies 2nd T20: A 5-match T20 series is underway between the Indian team and West Indies. The second match in the series will be played in Guyana from 8pm today (August 6). Star player Hardik Pandya is captaining the Indian team in this series.
In the first match of the series, the Indian team was beaten by 4 runs. In such a situation, this match is very important for Pandya in terms of performance. The batting looked weak in the last match. In such a situation, captain Pandya can give star opener Yashasvi Jaiswal a chance. If so, Yashasvi will make his ODI debut.
Tilak Verma and Mukesh Kumar made their debuts in the last match. There could be a big change to bring Yashasvi into the starting eleven. Either of the spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal may be left out. It now remains to be seen who Pandya leaves out of this match and who he gives a chance.
Prior to this match, the Indian team beat West Indies 1-0 in the two-Test series. Then they were beaten 2-1 in the 3-match ODI series. But after defeat in the first match of this T20 series, the Indian team now has a challenge on its hands.
