It was a bittersweet day for India as the middle-order batsman, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant, played maturely and scored half-centuries, went on taking the score to 287 runs. But the Men in Blue were not able to defend their target. The fielders dropped two catches, and one of the crucial catch was of Shimron Hetmyer who went on to score 139 runs. Earlier, in the T20I series too, India dropped many catches. With T20 World Cup lined, it is a worrying factor for the team. Virat Kohli and Co. need to work in this department.

The second ODI match is also important for India to keep themself in the race of the ODI series as West Indies has got the lead of 1-0.

In Chennai, India might be happy after taking the wicket of opener Sunil Ambris quickly but the youngster Shimron Hetmyer ended the celebration. He played a furious knock and went on to score a century for the team. The experienced Shai Hope stick to other end and played patiently.

Keemo Paul, Alzarri Joseph and Sheldon Cottrell picked two wickets each. Kieron Pollard-led team gave a prolific performance. After the loss of the T20I series, winning the first ODI match may increase the confidence of the visitors.

The ACA-VDCA Stadium is a batting-friendly pitch but batting second is terrible. The pitch will help the spinners to pick quick wickets, but the ball doesn’t bounce much in this field. It is a record that the team playing second had to struggle to score run.

Match Prediction

India made mistakes in the first ODI match of the series but to defeat India in the home ground is still a tough task. With the Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer handling the middle order, the Men in Blue will be confident to play fearlessly at the Visakhapatnam ground.

The pitch supports the spinners, which is the weakness of the West Indies team. The wrist-spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal can be dominant over the visitors. Thus, India is likely to make a come back in the series.
