Venue: Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad
The world is ready to witness yet another big battle of ODI cricket. The 2nd ODI match of the India tour of West Indies, 2022, is scheduled to be held on Sunday, July 24, 2022, at Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad. We are providing 100 safe, perfect, and accurate today’s match predictions of West Indies and India.
The opening match of India’s tour of the West Indies was very exciting, which India won with a margin of just three runs. The West Indies showed a lot of experience and power, which many of us were not expecting. West Indies had proved that they could give a tough time to any team when the conditions were good for batting. India was also good in the first match. We think that the top seven of India will remain the same while they can give a chance to Arshdeep Singh or Avesh Khan and maybe Prasidh Krishna sit on the bench. West Indies will play with the same playing eleven, and they can give a chance to Keemo Paul by replacing one of the left-arm spinners. West Indies and India will lock horns in the second ODI of the three-match series on Sunday, July 24. The Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain will play host to this clash.
The first ODI was a closely contested battle between the two teams and set the tone for the rest of the tour. Batting first, India posted a healthy total of 308 for the loss of seven wickets from their fifty overs.
Skipper Shikhar Dhawan led from the front with 97, while Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer scored half-centuries as well. Alzarri Joseph and Gudakesh Motie picked up a couple of wickets each for the hosts.
In response, the West Indies put up a solid response and almost overhauled the target as well. However, it was a heartbreak for them in the end as they fell short by the barest of margins, finishing their innings at 305 for the loss of six wickets.
Kyle Mayers and Brandon King scored half-centuries while the likes of Shamarh Brooks, Akeal Hosein, and Romario Shephard made vital contributions, all eventually in vain. Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Shardul Thakur picked up two wickets apiece as India survived a scare to take a 1-0 lead going into the second ODI.
WEST INDIES REVIEWS
The bowling department of West Indies did not perform well in the first match, where they leaked 308 runs in 50 overs. They did well in the last overs and stopped India from scoring a big total which was looking near about 330 to 350 runs in 50 overs. Alzarri Joseph, Jayden Seales, Romario Shepherd, K Mayers, Motie, Akeal Hosein, and the skipper Nicholas Pooran were used as bowlers in the first match. Gudakesh Motie was the most successful bowler from the side of the West Indies, who picked two wickets in ten overs against 54 runs. Alzarri Joseph was the other bowler who had two wickets to his name in ten overs while he was charged for 61 runs. Akela Hosein and Romario Shepherd picked one wicket each, while no other bowler from the side of the West Indies could manage to pick any wicket.
The way the batting order of West Indies performed in the previous match was just superb even though they could not chase the target of 304 runs and scored 300 runs in 50 overs. The wicket of Nicholas Pooran was the turning point of the match. The role of the batting order of the West Indies will also be very important in this match. We know that the wicket is not good for the bowlers, and this match will also be high scoring. Kyle Mayers was the most successful batter in the previous match from the side of West Indies, who scored 75 runs on 68 balls with the help of 10 boundaries and one huge six. Brandon King was also good with the bat and scored more than fifty runs. Romario Shepherd remained not out after scoring 39 runs on 25 balls with the help of three boundaries and two huge sixes.
The top batting order of India was just superb in the first match, especially the openers. Dhawan and Shubman Gill opened the batting inning for India and scored 119 runs for the partnership of the first wicket. India scored 103 runs for the partnership of the second wicket, and at this time, many of us were expecting that India would score more than 340 runs in total 50 overs, but the middle and lower batting order of India could not do well. Dhawan was the most successful and highest run-scorer from the side of India, with 97 runs to his name. He was also unlucky as he missed a golden chance of scoring a century. He faced 99 balls and smashed ten boundaries and three huge sixes during his inning. Shubman Gill also showed some power hitting and scored 64 runs at the strike rate of 120.
Shreyas Iyer was the other batter from the Indian side who scored more than fifty runs. He scored 54 runs and smashed five boundaries and two huge sixes during his inning. We don’t think that the performance of the bowling department of team India was good even though they defended the target of 304 runs and leaked 300 runs in 50 overs. Mohammed Siraj, Prasidh Krishna, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel, Deepak Hooda, and Yuzvendra Chahal were used as bowlers. Mohammed Siraj was the most successful bowler, with two wickets to his name in ten overs against 57 runs. Yuzvendra Chahal also picked two wickets in ten overs bowled out while he was charged for 58 runs. Shardul Thakur was the other bowler who picked two wickets in eight overs and leaked 54 runs. Deepak Hooda, Axar Patel, and Prasidh Krishna were the bowlers who could not manage to pick any wicket.

WI VS IND ARE PROBABLE TOP PERFORMERS
PROBABLY THE BEST BATTER OF THE 2ND ODI MATCH
Shreyas Iyer looked solid in his approach in the first ODI against West Indies, and this will be his best chance to secure a place in the ODI setup. The right-hander scored a 57-ball 54, which included five fours and two sixes, and he dominated the spinners in the middle overs. Given his immense potential, Iyer will be looking to convert the half-century into a century in the second ODI.
PROBABLY THE BEST BOWLER OF THE 2ND ODI MATCH
Yuzvendra Chahal came up with another good performance in the first ODI against the West Indies batting lineup, and he will like to replicate his heroics in the second game too. The leg-spinner picked up the big wicket of Rowman Powell, who could take the game away from the opponent quickly and changed the game in India’s favor. His recent form has been brilliant, and he will be Dhawan’s best weapon on the field.
