West Indies: LNLLL
West Indies started the first match well with their bowlers doing well with short balls against the Indians. But, once Yuvraj got in to the gear, they could not stop the proceedings. They did pretty well chasing the big total in their innings. They nearly won the match as they approached the final overs but fell short of the wickets. They would definitely like to improve on their performance in this match and register a win.
Dinesh and Ashish came out well in the middle and impressed with their performance. There seem no brainers in picking up the team for the second match. However, Indians need to make sure they keep their socks up throughout the match. Dhoni has expressed that they got little relaxed after the fall of seventh West Indian wicket in the first match and managed a victory of only 20 runs after posting 329.
The Indian team would be going in with the same combination that won the first match. There is a possibility that Dinesh could keep the wickets instead of Dhoni, as he looked a bit tired behind the stumps and hurt himself on a couple of occasions. There is a slight possibility that Praveen gets a chance instead of Ishant.
