“Looks an okay wicket today. The moisture from yesterday morning is gone. Think the pitch will get slower and slower. First six overs the ball is going to come on nicely.

19:32 hrs IST

IND opt to bat

India have won the toss and they have decided to bat first. The visitors have made no changes to their playing XI while West Indies have made one adjustment to their side.

19:23 hrs IST

Pitch Report

This pitch is still very solid. Most critical thing is there are some dark spots here, due to the overnight rain. Yesterday was a little tacky, today could be the same due to the moisture. Any team winning the toss would want to bowl first.

19:20 hrs IST

Team Changes

While India won’t try to make any changes in their playing eleven and would stick to the winning combination, West Indies could include an extra spinner in place of Rovman Powell as the wicket might again be on the slower side.

19:11 hrs IST

Kieron Pollard vs Navdeep Saini

Navdeep Saini was the star of India’s bowling attack in the 1st T20I. Kieron Pollard was the only West Indies player who led the resistance. He missed out on his half century though as he was undone by a slow swinging delivery from Saini in the final over. The duo will once again duel on Sunday at Lauderhill.

19:05 hrs IST

Evin Lewis vs Bhuvneshwar Kumar

The last time opener Evin Lewis played against India in Florida, he struck a majestic ton to power Windies to a one-run win. To stop that from happening again, Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be tasked to dismiss the hard-hitting opener early. Off 23 Bhuvneshwar deliveries in T20Is, Lewis has scored just 29 runs but to his credit, he hasn’t been dismissed by the Indian premier pacer yet in the shortest format.

18:56 hrs IST

Virat Kohli vs Sunil Narine

Old foes will reignite rivalry when India skipper Virat Kohli and Windies spinner Sunil Narine lock horns against each other. The two have faced each other quite a few times in IPL and they will now take their battle on to the international stage. Off 94 Narine deliveries in IPL, Kohli has scored 99 runs but he has been dismissed by the wily tweaker twice.

18:49 hrs IST

Shikhar Dhawan vs Sheldon Cottrell

Opener Shikhar Dhawan returns into international cricket after missing the latter part of India’s World Cup campaign due to a thumb injury. He will be raring to get back on the field after regaining full fitness. He will be tested early on by the furious pace of Sheldon Cottrell. The two have never faced each other in limited-over formats but expect sparks to fly when they do come face-to-face in Florida.

18:41 hrs IST

Rohit Sharma vs Oshane Thomas

Opener Rohit Sharma remains one of the most destructive batsmen in the shortest format and he will look to bring over his World Cup form into this series. He is likely to face the pace of Oshane Thomas early on in the innings. Off 18 deliveries from Thomas in T20Is, Rohit has scored 20 runs and he has been dismissed once by the fast-bowler.

18:30 hrs IST

India Predicted XI

Batsmen from both teams had a hard time in the sticky wicket, which was under covers for the better part of last week. But with sun baking down, one can expect better batting conditions on Sunday. India’s bowlers did a fine job by bowling West Indies out for 95 last night but batters did not perform to potential which may prompt the Indian think tank to opt for an extra batsman for the 2nd T20I. Here’s a look at the predicted XI for the 2nd T20I.

Saini is a raw talent, has bright future - Virat Kohli

“He is a raw talent, has raw pace. He is one of them who can bowl 150 clicks and there are hardly any who bowl at that pace and he is fit. He is someone who can build a name for himself and he is hungry as well. Hopefully he builds on from here,” says Virat Kohli.

India equal Pakistan’s unique World Record

On a pitch where all batsmen struggled to play their shots, the West Indies were restricted to 95 for nine batting first.

‘I could not believe it when I got India cap’

“When I received the India cap (on Saturday morning), I could not believe that today is the day which I was waiting for,” Debutant Navdeep Saini told his senior pace colleague Bhuvneshwar Kumar in an interview posted on BCCI Twitter handle.


17:40 hrs IST

KL Rahul has a chance to break Babar Azam’s World Record

KL Rahul has a chance of setting a huge T20I record when Team India locks horns against West Indies in the second match of the three-game series at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Florida on Sunday. Rahul was surprisingly excluded from India’s playing XI in the first match of the series on Saturday, which India won by 4 wickets but the right hander might just make a comeback in the second match, considering the fact that India struggled to chase down a modest target of 96. Virat Kohli and Co. lost six wickets before Ravindra Jadeja and Washington Sundar got them over the line.

Always keen to guide youngsters - Bhuvneshwar Kumar

“As a senior player you always want to perform. Even you could not perform you have to contribute to the team. That is the first thing I want to do and luckily I did that,” Bhuvneshwar said at the post-match press conference. “When young players like Navdeep Saini does well and Khaleel (Ahmed) does well, you want to always talk to them. You want to make them comfortable. That is the first thing I want to do and I always guide them,” he added.


17:20 hrs IST

West Indies predicted XI

West Indies had a poor show with the bat as well. There is a huge chance that some new names are introduced, and we could also see Sunil Narin opening the innings.


17:10 hrs IST

India predicted XI

After a poor batting display, there might be a few changes in India’s batting order in the 2nd T20I as the men in blue look to seal series.
