It will be a do-or-die situation for the Virat Kohli-led India cricket team when they take on the Windies cricket team in the second tie of their three-match One Day International (ODI) series at ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam, on Wednesday (December 18). The West Indies cricket team under Kieron Pollard is leading the series 1-0 after handing the Men in Blue a humiliating defeat by 8 wickets in Chennai. Despite posting 287/8 on a slow track in Chennai, India failed to defend the total as Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope slammed hundreds to guide West Indies to a comfortable win, with 13 balls to spare.


The Indian team management might look to make some changes to the playing 11 and bring in wicket-taking bowler Yuzvendra Chahal in place of Ravindra Jadeja. However, it is unlikely that Virat Kohli will tinker the top and middle orders in batting, with Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant putting up a 150-run stand to bring India back into the game after loss of two wickets early on. On the other hand, the West Indies team management would like to field the winning playing 11 from first ODI. However, if Evin Lewis recovers from the injury, he may replace Sunil Ambris at the top of the order.

Pitch report


The Vizag pitch is generally good for batting, with even bounce, and batsmen could play their shots on the rise, unlike the sticky Chepauk wicket. Given the winter season in India, dew will play a significant role which means the team winning the toss would most likely choose to field first.
