India comprehensively won the 1st game courtesy of some brilliant knocks from Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik that the Indian bowlers also bowled well to restrict West Indies to just 138 runs.
In the second T20I, West Indies stunned India with some exceptional bowling performance. India was once again bamboozled by a left-arm pacer as Obed McCoy single-handedly destroyed the Indian batting unit. Obed McCoy registered a record-breaking performance in this match, he picked up 6 wickets for just 17 runs from his 4 overs. This is also the best bowling figure by a West Indian bowler in T20I.
Batting first, India lost their skipper Rohit Sharma on the very first ball of the match as he was caught out for a golden duck off McCoy’s bowling. McCoy then dismissed Suryakumar for just 11 runs. India continued to lose wickets throughout the innings. Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya tried to build up a partnership but the Caribbean bowlers were just too good for them.
India was bowled out for just 138 runs within the 20 overs. Hardik Pandya was the top scorer for India with 31 runs off 31 balls including four and two sixes. Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant scored 27 and 24 runs respectively for their side. Obed McCoy claimed a 6-wicket haul while Jason Holder picked two wickets in that game.

West Indies lost some quick wickets in the middle overs and due to some tight bowling from the Indian bowlers, the game started to become interesting.

Rohit Sharma was dismissed for a golden duck in the previous match but he looked in good touch with the bat in the 1st T20I. The Indian skipper scored 64 runs off 42 balls including 7 fours and 2 sixes in that game. He was unlucky to not contribute much in the second T20I due to a surprising delivery from Obed McCoy but he is an experienced batsman and knows how to come back. He is likely to score a good knock for India in the series decider.
India Vs West Indies Probable Star Bowler Of The Match
The West Indian pacer was almost unplayable in the second T20I against India. McCoy destroyed the Indian batting lineup with his excellent bowling spell. The left-arm quick registered the best bowling spell by a West Indian bowler in T20 Internationals. He grabbed six important wickets from his 4 overs for just 17 runs. He is looking in good rhythm and he will be confident to pick more wickets and deliver another match-winning spell for his team in the all-important decider.
India Vs West Indies Match Prediction Who Will Win
India was excellent in the 1st T20I but West Indies roared back in the 2nd T20I to level the series. They were impressive with the ball and didn’t allow the Indian batters to settle in. Their confidence will be quite high before going into the Final match.
Although India collapsed in the previous game but still, they are a batter side as compared to the hosts. India has a strong lineup and they will make a strong comeback in the 3rd T20I.
Hence, we predict that India will beat West Indies in the 3rd T20I of this series.
