The second of the three-match series between India and West Indies is being played at Dr Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam. West Indies won the toss in the second match and decided to field first against India. For this match, a change has been made in the playing XI of the Indian side while two changes have been made in the playing XI of the Caribbean team. In the Indian team, Shardul Thakur has been replaced by Shivam Dubey. However, the fans are very angry about this.

Fans believe that Yuzvendra Chahal should have returned to the Indian playing eleven (XI). Also, Manish Pandey should have been included in the playing XI in place of Kedar Jadhav. In the first International of the series, the Indian team had to lose by eight wickets due to poor and poor fielding. During the toss, captain Virat said about a change in the team, “The pitch is very good. It is a very hard and good pitch for batting. Shardul Thakur has been replaced in the team in place of Shivam Dubey. Bowling attack with an extra will be stronger.”

Indian team playing XI: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), KL Rahul, Kedar Jadhav, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Shami, Kuldeep Yadav

West Indies playing XI: Kieran Pollard (captain), Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmeyer, Nicholas Pooran, Ruston Chase, Jason Holder, Chemo Paul, Khairi Pierre, Aljari Joseph, Sheldon Cottrell

However, the Indian team is not faring badly at all in the match.

Two 100s, one each from Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, helped India post 387/5 in the must-win game against the West Indies in Vizag on Wednesday. The openers got India off to a flying start in the second as they put on a 227-run stand for the opening wicket.

Rohit completed his 28th hundred, while Rahul scored his third century in today’s ODI. This was Rohit’s eighth 150-plus score in ODIs — most by any batsman in the world. During this knock, Rohit surpassed on the list of most sixes by an Indian in home ODIs. 

Rahul fell soon after completing his century and India skipper Virat Kohli departed for a golden duck. Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer’s cameo towards the end helped India to a sizable total.

West Indies are struggling at this point at 73/2 in 13.1 overs. Evin Lewis was caught Shreyas Iyer off Shardul Thakur at 30 while Shimron Hetmyer was run out by Iyer at 4. Shai Hope is batting at 34.
