If the weather predictions turn to be true then this Sunday’s game too could end as a damp squib with thunderstorms forecast for the morning and afternoon, with an 80 percent chance of showers.
The teams cannot do anything about the weather but they can use any damn opportunity properly, however, limited it may be, to test the fledgling players in their line-ups and which can make the schedule for the future match.
India tried to do that in the opening ODI by handing Kuldeep Yadav his ODI debut, and this youngster restricted to the comforts of the dressing room and somehow the visitors didn’t get a chance to bowl.
Shikhar Dhawan continued from where he left the important part in the important match which is the Champions Trophy and Ajinkya Rahane proved that he can be a solid option at the top of the order for the batsman team which can take forward by the player Rohit Sharma.
As the batsmen followed the familiar design associated with Indian ODI cricket in recent times – get off to see a short and steady match on the death overs. This resulted in to see were a fifth successive fifty-plus stand for Dhawan and Rahane, and then only in the third century stand for India in West Indies, and this features can also bring development in the Cricket match innings’!
Though some small and quick wickets followed by relentless rain meant that India could not find out whether they had the ideal conclusion. But during the time when the game was quite possible, they did witness another failure for Yuvraj Singh, and this is blowing hot and cold in the last few months.
With an eye on the future, India could look at giving flamboyant left-hander Rishabh Pant a go, to see if he can perform on the death overs apart from leading up the death overs of the country with some limited-overs cricket, with the 50-over World Cup in two years time.
For Windies, the bid can keep some hopes alive for a direct qualification for the 2019 World Cup and it can also beat the same with the massive wash-out in front of the against a party. They are still in with a chance, albeit a slim one – considering that they can beat India in the remaining matches and hope for Sri Lanka can lose their match in the upcoming series to Zimbabwe to move up in the rankings.
With no more series scheduled for Windies, apart from the current one against India, before the cut-off period, it is impressive to see Jason Holder’s team and the performance and the best result in an ODI series since 2016 is a 1-1 draw against Afghanistan can bring some good feedback for the match.
The hosts, however, would take heart from the fact that they made India to face a tough challenge in front of them during the death overs by picking up quick wickets which manage to keep their skipper quiet. Devendra Bishoo’s enclosure did them a world of good while the Windies captain too came with such an economical strong performance.
A disciplined show with the ball is what Windies will be hope to play the second game while praying that the batsmen, who have hardly made an impact and he is in the Cricket field from last 10 years.
The hosts are unlikely to make a change and the team eleven that featured in the last game is the strong one. India, meanwhile, could look at giving Pant an opportunity, and it can, might also come to the expense of Yuvraj.
What they said:
“For a tournament like the World Cup, you have to recognize the 15 who will be playing. So from a pool of 25, you can look at different players at different stages, who is going to perform better at pressure stages, We have to try and address these things as a team.” – Virat Kohli stated.
