In the Hyderabad T20, India, riding on a brilliant knock from skipper Virat Kohli, registered their highest-ever successful run-chase in T20s as they chased down the 208-run target with 6 wickets in hand.
The Indian skipper would be impressed with the way his players performed with the bat. However, the hosts were sloppy in the other two departments and will be desperately hoping of better performances in bowling and fielding in Thiruvananthapuram.
Team India dropped many catches and were found wanting on the field -- something which they would want to improve in the second T20. On the other hand, the visitors -- as Kieron Pollard
said after their defeat in Hyderabad -- need to improve their bowling.

India vs West Indies 2nd T20 playing 11 prediction
India cricket team
might go with unchanged playing 11 in the second T20I as every player in the team contributed in the record chase. However, team management would look to give the Sanju Samson a chance in his home ground.
India tentative playing 11:
Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli
(C), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant
(WK)/Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar
Windies cricket team
will get a huge boast with the return of Nicolas Pooran, who was banned for four matches for ball tampering. He might replace Simmons, who failed to make any impression in Hyderabad,
West Indies tentative playing 11:
Evin Lewis, Brandon King, Nicolas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Kieron Pollard
(C), Denesh Ramdin (wk), Jason Holder, Khary Pierre, Kesrick Williams, Sheldon Cottrell, Hayden Walsh
Thiruvananthapuram weather is not going to play a spoilsport this time around as it did in the last two International matches here. The weather is expected to be cloudy throughout the Sunday evening with only 4 per cent chances of rainfall
The Thiruvananthapuram pitch is expected to support batsman however, an extra bounce in the pitch might favour the bowlers.
