IND vs WI 2nd T20 Time: India vs West Indies 2nd T20 will not start from 8 o’clock today, know when the match will happen now


There has been a change in the timing of the second T20 International match between India and West Indies to be held today. Now this match will start with a delay of two hours. The West Indies board gave this information a few hours before the scheduled time of the match at 8 o’clock. Now this match will be held in India from 10 pm, while in Jamaica it will be 11:30 am at that time. The board said in its statement that there has been a delay in the arrival of the team’s luggage from Trinidad to St Kitts, which is beyond the control of the Windies Cricket Board. Because of this the match will be started late.

Let us tell you that after registering an impressive victory in the opening T20 match of the five-match series, Rohit Sharma-led Indian team will look to maintain their dominance over the West Indies in the second match today. In view of the T20 World Cup to be played this year, the Indian team will not take any match of this format lightly. In the opening T20 match against West Indies, there was a big difference between the two countries in every department of the game.

It will be a big challenge for the hosts to stop the Indian Vijay Rath. Rohit displayed shrewd captaincy by including three spinners like Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi in the playing XI. Along with this, he surprised everyone by opening the innings with Suryakumar Yadav. In this format against England, Rohit started the innings with Rishabh Pant. In such a situation, Suryakumar became India’s seventh opener in T20 International this year. He batted aggressively and scored 24 runs in 16 balls.

The middle order will have to show strength
In the absence of KL Rahul, it will be interesting to see if the team management will continue to experiment for the opener. In the last match, Rohit Sharma scored 64 runs in 44 balls to lay the foundation for a big score but the Indian middle order faltered. However, in the last over, Dinesh Karthik’s bold innings (41 not out off 19 balls) took the team’s score to 190 runs. In such a situation, the middle order batsmen will have to show strength in the match. Especially Shreyas Iyer has to open his hands. He could not even open an account in the first match. Today Deepak Hooda can be included in the playing XI in his place. Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya were also dismissed cheaply in the last match. As far as the bowling is concerned, the Indian team was missing a better left-arm fast bowler for a long time but Arshdeep Singh impressed with his excellent bowling in the first match. The West Indies batsmen also had no answer for Ashwin and Bishnoi’s spin. It remains to be seen whether the team management will retain the trio of Jadeja, Ashwin and Bishnoi or return of Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav.

Failed host on every front
As far as West Indies are concerned, the team failed on every front in the first match. Even the return of experienced Jesser Holder could not strengthen the team. The team management, promoting him in batting, sent him to number three but he could not even open the account. In bowling too, he conceded 50 runs in his four over spell. Captain Nicholas Pooran (18 runs) also could not take advantage of his good start. The highest score in batting was opener Shamar Brooks, who could score only 20 runs. In such a situation, if the host team wants to win, then it will have to improve on every front.
