The second T20I of the five-match series between India and West Indies will be played on Sunday, August 6 at Providence Stadium, Guyana, West Indies.
Team India had a disappointing start to their five-match T20I series, suffering a narrow four-run defeat against the Men in Maroon. Their batting performance was lacklustre, except for the memorable debutant, Tilak Varma, who scored 39 runs off 22 balls.
West Indies, on the other hand, appeared to be in top form during the series opener. Some brilliant performances by Nicholas Pooran, Captain Rovman Powell, Brandon King, Jason Holder, and Romario Shepherd contributed to a remarkable team effort, overshadowing the Men in Blue.
