The second ODI between India and the West Indies will be played at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad. The first One-Day International (ODI) was a close encounter, with India winning by three runs. After scoring 308, the visitors held the Caribbean squad to 305 points.
The Indian team will seek assistance from Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer once more. West Indies, on the other side, have in-form players in Kyle Mayers and Nicholas Pooran. This game is likely to be a close one, with both sides seeking to win a crucial game.
Pooran has been encouraging his hitters to step up in the format in order to turn around West Indies’ fortunes, and that is exactly what his team did in chase of 309. Pooran’s loss felt like a win, and he now aims to build on that performance. They don’t have much time to recover, and they’ll have to turn things around soon if they want to keep the series going.
India has handed Sanju Samson a second chance in the format by selecting him ahead of Ishan Kishan in a new role at number five. Even if Samson did not impress, anticipate the management to keep him for the next two games. In the absence of KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, and Ravindra Jadeja, Samson, Deepak Hooda, and Axar Patel will look to impress.

West Indies vs India 2nd ODI – Dream11 Fantasy Must Picks
The skipper for this series was in full flow in the first game, where he scored a hefty 97 runs off 99 deliveries. He is a known commodity in the ODI format and the fact that he plays these innings at the top of the order ensures that the team gets a sense of stability as the game goes deeper and a strong enough start for the middle order to capitalize on.
He was re-picked for the ODI format after he was abruptly dropped in the England series after playing a single match, and he, in return, played some sensational knocks while he managed to score only 27 runs in the first game, he seemed to be in fine touch and we expect to see him play even better in the upcoming game, considering how essential the middle order is, against a formidable West Indies bowling attack.
The opening batter for the West Indies was in imperious form in the last game, giving his team a solid start with his blistering knock of 75 runs from just 68 deliveries. The Indian bowlers definitely breathed a sigh of relief after his dismissal and will be wary of him heading into the upcoming game.
The weight of the captaincy definitely seems to be weighing Pooran down, but if he is to thrive as the captain of the national side, he will have to play through this patch. He did not have much of a say in the run chase in the first game, scoring just 25 runs from 26 deliveries, but he knows he is capable of doing much better and will look to play a captain’s knock in the upcoming game.
