West Indies vs India: A nail-biting first two games sees India up 2-0. The series though could have easily been 0-2 to West Indies, had they taken their moments well. Nicholas Pooran still sees the games as a win and why wont he given the positives they have had so far. In both games the batting stood up and the bowling came close to holding India down. For India, they managed to get to 300 in both games. Shreyas Iyer scored some runs and Axar Patel finally seems to be coming out of Ravindra Jadeja’s shadows. There will be a selection debate though with Jadeja slated to come back for the Final ODI.

Key Players

Shreyas Iyer

Shreyas Iyer came into this series with a cloud over his ability to play the short ball. His ability is still a concern but the runs he has scored will hide that for the time being. He has had a decent hit out in the middle and that should help his confidence making it easier for him to come out with comfort in the next game.

Shai Hope

In his 100th ODI, Shai Hope came up with his trademark anchor innings. A steady hundred helped his side attack around him, getting them to a good score. His batting style is starting to work well for West Indies and if he can manage similar innings, West Indies will look a lot more explosive.
