IND vs WI 2nd T20I Highlights: West Indies won by 2 wickets.
India's most sought-after IPL stars will have a reputation to defend and parity to restore when they face a quality West Indies side for the second time in the ongoing T20 International of the five-match series at the Providence Stadium on Sunday.
India had lost by 4 runs in the 1st T20I in Tarouba where West Indies prevailed on a slow batting track with an impressive bowling effort at the back-end.
Skipper Hardik Pandya along with his deputy Suryakumar Yadav would expect to put a far improved batting show -- both individually as well as collectively.
A better batting effort in the back-10 would be top priority at a venue where the West Indies haven't had a great T20I record. Out of 11 matches played at this ground, three didn't produce result due to rain and in the remaining eight, West Indies lost five games.
