The 2nd T20I match between India and West Indies will be held on August 1st at Warner Park, Basseterre, St Kitts.

India were the far better side in Friday's opening game of the series and their 68 run lead over the win was fully deserved. Read on as we preview the latest game of white ball between these sites. The game starts at 10:30 local time.
The West Indies didn't show any of their better T20I performances on Friday and they need to raise their level of performance if they want to take on India in this game.
India's performance in the opening game built on Rohit Sharma's innings at the top of the order, with spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi proving far too strong for West India.

Top Picks for Dream11 Prediction and Fantasy Cricket Tips

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a right-handed batsman and middle right-arm pacer from India. He took 1 wicket in the last game and may come in handy again here.
Hardik Pandya is a right-handed batsman and right-arm medium-paced bowler from India. He only scored 1 run in the last game but can score big in the upcoming game.
Rohit Sharma the right-hander was the best with the racquet on Friday. He hit seven fours and two sixes and didn't fight the Indian bowlers.
Arshdeep Singh the left-arm pacemaker caught the eye with exceptional accuracy in the first game of the series. He conceded just 24 runs from his four overs, dismissing Kyle Mayers and Akeal Hosein.
Ravi Bishnoi the spinner bowled exceptionally well in the opening game along with Ravichandran Ashwin. The West Indies thugs had no answer for him and regularly failed to collect his sticky deliveries.
Dinesh Karthik the veteran campaigner has been great in the death overs since his return to international cricket. In the first game he had 41* on 19 balls.
Akeal Hosein is a left-handed batsman and left-armed orthodox spinner from the West Indies. He marked 11 runs and grabbed 1 wicket in the last game. He will be a safe pick for this game.
Nicholas Pooran is a left-handed batsman from the West Indies. He smashed 18 runs in the last game and will try to capitalize on the start here.
Shamarh Brooks  the top opener scored for the hosts Brian Lara Cricket Academy and caused some excitement in the India Bowling attack with his crisp shots.
Kyle Mayer the explosive left-handed hitter has given the team good starts on the power play overs and can also contribute with the ball.
