The Indian cricket team (IND) will aim to win their third T20 International match on the trot when they take on West Indies (WI) in the second T20I of the five-match series on Monday, August 1. The match will be played at Warner Park Sporting Complex in Basseterre, St. Kitts, starting at 8:00 PM IST.
WI vs IND Dream11 prediction
The return of India’s regular captain, Rohit Sharma, made a substantial impact on the side as they cruised to a comfortable 68-run win in the first T20I. Such was India’s dominance on the night that only one West Indies bowler, Akeal Hosein, finished with an economy of under six. As many as three bowlers conceded over 10 runs per over.
Come Monday, one can expect India to make a similar impact.
WI vs IND Dream11 team tips for 2nd T20I
Top tip: Best batter
Selected by 85.52 per cent of fantasy users, India captain Rohit Sharma is the most-picked batter for the second T20I. The hard-hitting opener scored 64 runs off just 44 balls in the opening match, thus finishing with a tally of 89 points, the most any batter could accumulate on the night. He remains a strong recommendation for this contest.
Top tip: Best bowler
At just 8.5 credits, India’s Ravichandran Ashwin is an absolute steal. The veteran off-spinner took two wickets in the first T20I as he tallied 73 points. Although Bhuvneshwar Kumar is another option you can ponder, Ashwin’s current form makes him our top pick for this position.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
For an all-rounder, India’s Hardik Pandya is a no-brainer. The 28-year-old did blank in the first T20I but is highly tipped to make up for the loss on Monday. The middle-order batter has been in top form in the shortest format of late and could prove to be the trump card you need for this match.
For a wicket-keeper, India’s Dinesh Karthik is an outright pick. The veteran wicketkeeper-batsman played a Man of the Match knock in the opening T20I, scoring 41 runs off just 19 balls to finish with a total of 63 fantasy points.
WI vs IND probable playing XI
WI playing XI (probable): Kyle Mayers, Shamarh Brooks, Jason Holder, Nicholas Pooran (captain and wicket-keeper), Rovman Powell, Shimron Hetmyer, Akeal Hosein, Odeon Smith, Keemo Paul, Alzarri Joesph, Obed McCoy
IND playing XI (probable): Rohit Sharma (captain), Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh
