ABOUT THE MATCH

After losing the Test and ODI series, the T20 series was supposed to be the best bet for West Indies but while their bowlers did well to restrict India in the first match, their batsmen struggled to put on a target competitive enough to challenge the hosts.

Match Preview

The result at the Eden Gardens makes it 3 wins for India in 9 T20 meetings against the Windies. The visitors still lead the head to head tally with 5 wins.

iconIndia Team News

In their first ever T20 at home without MS Dhoni, all the experienced batsmen failed and it was debutant Krunal Pandya who saved the day. He received some solid support from Dinesh Karthik who also remained unbeaten.

The Indian bowling had done well to restrict the Windies, especially Kuldeep Yadav. Umesh Yadav only played because of Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s illness and he could be back for the second match.

iconWest Indies Team News

The Windies have several big hitters in the team but all of them failed. Kieron Pollard was supposed to lead the six hitting but he could manage just 14. More will be expected from the likes of Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmeyer, Dinesh Ramdin and Darren Bravo.

Debutant Oshane Thomas troubled the Indian batsmen with his pacy inswingers and he will look to continue that. All the Windies bowlers did well to put the pressure on the Indian batsmen but they will want a bigger target to defend next time.

Pitch Conditions

 

Sunny skies are expected at the Ekana International Cricket Stadium but with this being an evening start, dew could play a factor. It is traditionally seen as a batting pitch but it could get difficult in the second innings. Expect a bigger first innings score than the one in Kolkata.

Toss Prediction

 

The team winning the toss will elect to bat.

Our Match Prediction

Despite some stiff competition from the West Indies, India should win and make it 2-0.
