India vs West Indies - 2nd T20 International Preview & Prediction

Windies would be buoyed by Oshane Thomas's lively spell in the opening T20I

Needing a win to stay alive in the three-match series after the five-wicket loss at Kolkata, West Indies got off to the worst possible start, losing two wickets - Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer early on with young left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed accounting for both the batsmen.

After the visitors asked India to bat first, Rohit regaled the huge crowd with some sweetly-timed pulls and drives to power the home side to 195 on a wicket that lacked bounce.

During the course of the innings, Rohit also leapfrogged Virat Kohli' tally and became India's highest run-scorer in T20Is. But the Indian openers finally broke the shackles in the fifth over when Rohit and Dhawan took Thomas to the cleaners hitting a six and two boundaries, picking up 17 runs.

Rohit launched seven rockets into the stand and scored eight fours to bring up his fourth T20I hundred. With the innings in Lucknow, Rohit has 19, while Virat Kohli, who has been rested for this series, has 18 such innings. You don't have to make too many changes to your game because you already have shared the dressing room with worldwide players, he said."When you come into the Indian team, by then you had already learned professionalism and know how to correct your mistakes".

"You know Dhawan's natural instinct is to put pressure on the bowlers, but we chose to take our time".

Khaleel also revealed that he is working on his bowling with bowling coach Bharat Arun at the nets to get better with each passing day. Everyone who came out to watch the game will go home with a smile. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan gave India a sluggish start but there seemed to be no respite for the Windies bowlers once the two openers started firing on all cylinders.

Darren Bravo hit 23 off 18 balls but Windies were unable to get any significant partnerships going, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2-12) and Jasprit Bumrah (2-20) the most economical of the Indian bowlers. The partnership at the top was very important.

"Shikhar's natural instinct is to put pressure on bowlers". We use him different in T20Is then in ODIs. Left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed struck in his first and third overs to remove two risky batsmen, Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer, cheaply and retard the run rate.
