Not often do India finds themselves the position they are in. They are playing at home, down 1-0 in the series, and are fighting for survival in the ongoing three-match series against West Indies. A win for West Indies in the first ODI has set the series up beautifully.
The two teams will now move to Vishakhapatnam to play the second One Day International. The match is scheduled to begin at 1:30pm IST on Wednesday, 18th December. Indian will certainly be hurt after this loss and we expect them to come back like a wounded lion on Wednesday. West Indies, on the other hand, will be brimming with confidence and looking to win the upcoming match and seal the series then and there.
India are still the favorites, but as we saw in the first match, West Indies are well and truly capable to beat any side on their day. Stay tuned for the second ODI, which is expected to be nothing short of a humdinger.
Even though India lost the opening game of the series, they had plenty of positives to draw from the way they played. India recovered beautifully with the bat after losing Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma early in their innings. Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer did an excellent job of rebuilding the innings as they both concentrated on rotating the strike and picking up boundaries on loose deliveries. They pair was involved in a brilliant partnership for the the fourth wicket.
Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer both perished in a bid to up the ante and Indians failed to finish their innings with a flourish. India could score only 75 runs in their last ten overs and that is arguably the session India lost the match, as far as batting is concerned. Despite the fact that Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli were dismissed cheaply, India wouldn't be worrying too much, yet. The trio looked in superb touch in the T20I series and at least one of those, if not all, are likely to perform in the upcoming contest.
India ended up scoring 288 on a surface, which was not easy to bat on by any stretch of imagination. India started off well in their defense with Deepak Chahar trapping Sunil Ambris in front. However, it was all one-way traffic thereafter. Indian bowlers failed to put a lid on the scoring rate until Mohammad Shami got Shimron Hetmyer caught by Shreyas Iyer. However, the breakthrough came in too late and was too little. Poor fielding and dropped catches didn't help India's cause either.
West Indies eventually sealed the deal with eight wickets in hand and plenty of overs to spare. While India were way off their potential in the first match, they would not be taking things too seriously. They might be tempted to make a couple of changes to their playing eleven, but we expect them to field the same team as they did in the first match.
Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, V Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, RR Pant, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Shami, SN Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav.
The way West Indies fought in the T20I was perhaps only indicated the signs for things to come. They won the second T20I with considerable and proved their prowess in the opening game of the ODI series.
In recent times, West Indies have been all about individual brilliances and there was no shortage of that in the first match. Shimron Hetmyer played one of the best ODI innings in recent imtes as he smashed 139 off just 106 deliveries on a surface, on which everyone else seemed to struggle. Many would argue that Hope played too slow for an ODI innings, but it proved to be a perfect foil for Hetmyer.
The partnership between Hetmyer and Shai Hope batted India out of the match. None of the Indian bowlers had answers to Hetmyer's blitz. Hope and Hetmyer partnered to score 218 runs combined for the second wicket. With these two doing bulk of the damage for West Indies, there was not much left to do for the likes of Pollard and Pooran, who too can be pretty dangerous to deal with on their day.
Earlier with the ball, West Indies were fantastic. Sheldon Cotterell not only kept Indian stalwarts quiet, but also picked up key wickets of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma early in the innings. They weren't as effective in the middle overs as Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant easily milked them for singles, but they bounced back in the death overs to rock Indians once again. They conceded just 75 runs in the final ten overs and that perhaps proved be the difference between two sides.
Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Roston Chase, Kieron Pollard, Jason Holder, Keemo Paul, Alzarri Joseph, Sheldon Cottrell, Khary Pierre.

West Indies have adoped the fearless approach in the tour so far and it seems to be paying off brilliantly so far. Indians were left high and dry in the opening game, but we expect them to bounce back as they did in the third T20I of the series. While both the teams have youngsters at their disposal, India seem to have a better amalgamation of youth and experience. Also, they have a terrific top-order that is capable of scoring quick runs regardless of the conditions. India have been a better side performance wise in the recent times and it is not different when compared the teams on paper. For those reasons, we think that India are firm favorites to emerge on top in the second ODI of the series and keep the series alive.
