In the last match, the visitors opted for the strategy of starting slow and keeping wickets in hand for the last. India only managed to score 199/3 in 40 overs before the skies opened up. Because of this, the hosts were given a revised target of 194 runs to chase in 26 overs — a not impossible task. Apart from the openers, skipper Virat Kohli also clicked after a poor show in the summit clash of the Champions Trophy and will look to continue playing with the same momentum. But Yuvraj Singh's patchy form will be a concern for the Indian skipper while going to the second ODI. The bowling department, which consists of pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Hardik Pandya, alongside spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav will be hoping for a rain-free day so that they get to flex their muscles in front of an inexperienced West Indies batting line-up.
CONDITIONS: Thundershowers are expected once again and it won't be much of a surprise if this game, just like the first ODI is washed off. Pitches have over the years slowed down in the Caribbean Islands and another slow wicket is expected for the second ODI.
