A bumper to end, perfect pacers response after getting hit for two boundaries. Oshane goes for the pull but fails to make contact. He is down on the ground. Karthik throws the stumps down at his end but Oshane is in. A dot to end and INDIA WIN BY 71 RUNS!

FOUR! THUMPED! Fuller and on off, Oshane makes room and slams it past the bowler.

Hit hard but straight to covers.

Summary

India will be looking to clinch the three-match T20I series against Windies as the two sides take on each other in Lucknow. Newly built Ekana International Cricket Stadium is the venue for the second T20I and apparently, it will host its first international game. India took an early lead in the series after winning the opening T20I by five wickets. Set a target of 110 runs, India completed the chase in 17.5 overs after losing few early wickets.

 

Meanwhile, Windies will be hopeful of a comeback as they look to draw level and stay alive in the series. It was Windies batting that failed to put up a fight and the visitors will be hoping of a better show from its batsmen. It will be interesting to see if Windies makes some changes to the playing XI or not.

 

India, on the other hand, looks balanced and are unlikely to tinker with the winning combination. So, the home side is likely to field an unchanged playing XI which means Shikhar Dhawan will get an extended run despite being in the poor form of late. The opener managed only three runs in the opening T20I.

 

Squads:

 

Windies: Carlos Brathwaite (c), Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope (wk) Obed McCoy, Keemo Paul, Khary Pierre, Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Sherfane Rutherford, Oshane Thomas.

 

India: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, K Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem.
