After a hard-fought victory over the Windies, India look to seal a series win as they face the reigning World T20 Champions in the second T20 in Florida. The dampness in the pitch paved the way for a thrilling low-scoring encounter that saw Navdeep Saini revel with the ball in hand. While West Indies fight to keep the series alive, India might experiment with the Chahar brothers waiting on the sidelines with the T20 World Cup lingering on their minds. Here are a few tips to help you pick your Dream11 team for IND vs WI.
John Campbell, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Carlos Brathwaite, Keemo Paul, Sunil Narine, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Anthony Bramble, Andre Russell, Khary Pierre.
India:Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Rahul Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini
Playing XI Updates:
An extra spinner could be drafted in for Rovman Powell with the pitch on the slower side. Another option is promoting Sunil Narine to the top of the order which adds depth to the batting unit. The onus is on Shimron Hetmyer and Nicolas Pooran to provide the goods as Sheldon Cottrell continues to impress with the ball. Evin Lewis' record against India is note-worthy and could come off at the top of the order
Although India would love a series win, a couple of changes could be made with an extra batsman in Shreyas Iyer or KL Rahil in line for a starting XI place. With the number of left-handers in the West Indian side, Ravindra Jadeja could make way for Iyer or Rahul while Deepak Chahar is another such candidate who could slot in for Navdeep Saini or Khaleel Ahmed. On a tough wicket, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are key for the Indians against the fiery West Indians.
Possible XI: Rohit, Dhawan, Rahul, Kohli(C), Pandey, Pant(WK), Krunal, Sundar, Bhuvneshwar, Khaleel/Deepak Chahar and Saini
In spite of the small boundaries, another low-scoring game is on the cards with the pitch favouring the spinners. 130-140 should be par on this surface with the likes of Krunal Pandya and Sunil Narine bound to have a say on Sunday.
