What would you ideally expect in recent times when a team visits India? Just two things, a one sided match and lack of spectators in the stadium. But aren't there some recent happenings that make this ODI series more interesting? Certainly there are some! The last test match which ended like a nail biter and the first ODI which was again a cliff hanger. Things don't look as easy as Indian team would have speculated.
West Indies is playing as a better unit since the last test match. They are giving a tough time to the Indian team in the limited version of the game also. Now the series moves on to Vishakhapatnam.
The other benefit of this series which writes off the probability of less spectators is the venues. If we don't consider the major venues in India like Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, etc. the other venues host very little International matches, thus attracting more crowd than the bigger venues. Another plus point of this match would be, Vishakhapatnam track is know for 250 plus scores.
India would like to play the winning eleven of Cuttack unless we see some unexpected injuries. Rahane and Tiwary may have to sit out again. Sehwag would like to see more resolute batting from his team as he seemed to be upset with the batting performance. On the other hand West Indies team would be itching to register their first win on this tour and level the series. Stay tuned for another exciting day's play.
