India vs West Indies, 2nd T20I: India eye improved batting performance to bounce back In Important Game
India and West Indies will play their second Twenty20 International (T20I) match of a five-match series on August 6 at Providence Stadium in Georgetown, Guyana. In the first T20 match, West Indies showed why they are still considered one of the best teams in this format.
India, on the other hand, didn't play very well, which led to a win for the hosts and a 1-0 lead in the series. The 2nd T20I between IND and WI will start on Sunday at 8 PM IST.
India kept West Indies to a below-average score, but their run chase wasn't anything to write home about. The openers didn't get off to a good start, and the middle order had trouble getting going, which put too much pressure on the lower order. In the first T20I, this meant that the West Indies won.
The hosts might not make too many changes because they don't want to mess up what works. Hardik Pandya and the rest of the team will want to get back on track and play better with the bat.
