WI vs IND 2nd ODI: India (IND) and West Indies (WI) are set to face off in the second ODI match of the India Tour of West Indies at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on July 29. The ongoing three-match series is currently led by India, who are ahead 1-0, making them the favorites to not only win this match but also clinch the series. Nevertheless, West Indies is determined to put up a competitive fight and make it challenging for India.

In their last encounter at the same venue, India had won the toss and chose to field. West Indies lost Kyle Mayers early to Pandya but managed to build a decent second-wicket partnership. However, the Indian pacers struck again, claiming two wickets in quick succession. When the spinners entered the game, the already challenging situation for West Indies became even tougher. The spin duo of Jadeja and Kuldeep wreaked havoc, taking seven wickets and quickly wrapping up the West Indies innings for a mere 114 runs.

While a target of 114 runs wouldn’t typically pose a significant challenge for India, early wickets by the West Indies gave them some hope. Although they managed to dismiss Shubhman Gill early, a solid partnership between Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav kept the game firmly in the grip of the Indian Cricket Team. Though India lost a few wickets in their pursuit of the target, they remained in control throughout. Ishan played a fantastic innings, securing a well-deserved fifty, and India comfortably won the match by five wickets.

Pitch and conditions

The pitch at the Kensington Oval heavily favors bowlers, particularly pacers. At the beginning of the innings, the ball swings effectively, and as the game progresses, it might also offer reverse swing. Batsmen will have to exercise caution and then look for opportunities to play their shots. Due to these conditions, teams winning the toss usually opt to bowl first, and the average first innings total on this pitch is around 205.
