Toss India chose to bat vs West Indies
That meant India continued to play with a long tail, with virtually four No. 11s – a situation which could put their top seven under pressure yet again, after they failed to score 37 off the last 27 balls in the first T20I.
Rovman Powell announced an unchanged West Indies XI from the game in Tarouba, where his side was victorious by four runs. Powell expected the pitch to get better for batting as the match wore on.
West Indies have a 1-0 lead in the five-match series, and are chasing back-to-back T20I wins against India for the first time since 2016.
