It was a one-sided affair in the second game of the 3-Match ODI series between West Indies and India. The hosts had looked in terrible form in the T20 series went down by a big margin of 59 runs under the DLS method. The Indian team is looking in great form with the bat and their bowlers also did well in the last game to win it for the side.
The problems for the West Indian side has been compounded with their poor batting form as their batsmen have found it tough to score against the Indians. They have had an extremely poor record against the Indians over the last few seasons and it would take a herculean effort from the side to win the next game. It remains to be seen how they approach this one.

Jason Holder would be upset with the way his side approached the last game. Having restricted the Indians to a moderate score they would have counted their chances. They wasted a good platform their top order had given and gone down by a huge margin. Staring at a series loss the skipper would expect a better show from his players.
Chris Gayle is looking uncomfortable in the middle though his opening partner Evin Lewis is looking in great form at the moment. Nicholas Pooran also played well in the last game and offers solidity to the batting. Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer and Roston Chase need to put a price on their wicket for the side to do well in the next game.
Sheldon Cottrell and Jason Holder bowled well in the last game though Kemar Roach’s performance at the top wasn’t great. He bowled too many loose balls in the game. Roston Chase and Carlos Brathwaite also did well and shall look to carry the same form in the next game. The side would like to see better bowling performance from Oshane Thomas in the next game to win it.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli led from the front to ensure a win for his side in the second game and take a 1-0 lead after the first game was washed away. The side has done well in the tour so far with bat and ball and the skipper would want them to take the series 2-0 in the upcoming game.
Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma missed out in the last game but they have looked in good form. Kohli scored a brilliant hundred and was well supported by Shreyas Iyer in the game. They have a good batting line-up with Rishab Pant and Kedar Jadhav in the side and look to trouble the West Indian bowlers.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami bowled well in the last game and troubled the West Indian batsmen. Khaleel Ahmed and Ravindra Jadeja also did well. Kuldeep Yadav was a bit expensive and the team would want him to bowl well in the next game to win it.

The weather is expected to be good on August 14 in Port of Spain. The pitch wasn’t the best one to bat on in the last game and the batsmen would to stick their ground in the next game. The side batting first would target a total of around 300 runs in the next game.
Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain has been a good ground for the batsmen in the last few years but the pitch tends to also offer good support to the bowlers as the game progresses and it gets slower. Spinners and slow bowlers have done well on this surface.
It is one of the worst grounds in the world to chase a score and scores above 280 runs has been chased only once on this surface. The pitch gets slower in the second innings and teams find it hard to bat. The side winning the toss would like to bat first on this surface.
West Indies are going through a rough ride in this series and their batsmen have failed to live up to the challenge so far. Indians, on the other hand, have looked extremely good both with the bat and the ball. They have won most of the games without much trouble. Having troubled the West Indian batsmen so far during the tour the Indian side would definitely start as favorites to win this game.
