Ind vs WI 2nd T20 in Lucknow LIVE: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan begin cautiously
The West Indies opted to bowl against India in the second T20 International of the three-match series here Tuesday. India brought back Bhuvneshwar Kumar in place of Umesh Yadav while the West Indies replaced Rovman Powell with Nicolas Pooran.
India's four-match T20 losing streak against the West Indies ended on Sunday in Kolkata. And in the penultimate game of what has been a disastrous tour for the visitors, India would be favourites to lock the series in their favour. India's last win against the West Indies before Sunday came way back on March 23, 2014 in the World T20 in Bangladesh. With the win at the Eden Gardens, India managed to better their head-to-head record against the reigning world T20 champions to 5-3 now from nine exchanges between 2009 and 2017.
Lucknow is hosting its first international match at the newly-built Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, would be eager to see a more dominant performance from the home team, one that's befitting the gulf in quality between the two sides.
Here's the Full Scoreboard:
India: Rohit Sharma(captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Krunal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, K Khaleel Ahmed.
