West Indies vs India 2019 2nd T20I: Preview, predicted XI, weather report, head-to-head stats and pitch report
The West Indian batsmen had a forgettable game as they could put up just 95 runs on the board, with only Kieron Pollard and Nicholas Pooran scoring in double figures. The likes of Evin Lewis and Shimron Hetmyer would be looking to make amends for their failures in the first T20I.
The Indian batsman would also be looking to perform better going forward as they lost 6 wickets in a chase of just 96 runs.
The debutant Navdeep Saini was sensational in the first game and would look to continue in the same vein in the second match.
It’s a must-win encounter for the defending T20 champions and they will leave no stone unturned to try and take the series into the decider.
Date: 4th August 2019 (Sunday)

Scattered thunderstorms are predicted later in the day in Florida, but that should not influence the game too much as the match starts at 10.30 am local time.
Although traditionally a high scoring ground, the ball didn’t quite come on to the bat in the first T20I as almost every batsman struggled for timing. A total in the range of 150-160 can be a match winning one here.
Total matches played: 12
