India won the first ODI with ease, winning by a margin of five wickets.

In addition to the positives, they had great slip-catching, taking precise receptions throughout the game. They experimented with their batting order as they chased a modest total of 114 runs, sending Rohit Sharma in at No. 7 instead of star batsman Virat Kohli. In the end, they were successful in completing the task after 22.5 overs thanks to Ishan Kishan, who opened with Shubman Gill. With one game remaining, it appears they will take the series 2-0.

Players to watch out for
Ishan Kishan, an Indian wicketkeeper-batsman, maybe the finest hitter in India’s upcoming match against the West Indies. With a half-century in the first ODI, the youthful player led India in runs scored, and he would like to repeat that effort in the second match.
In the second ODI, star spinner Kuldeep Yadav may show himself to be deadly with the ball in his hand. Kuldeep Yadav stole the show in the first game by taking four outstanding wickets, and he continued to impress in the second ODI.
Possible Playing XI
Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal
West Indies didn’t look comfortable against spin in the 1st ODI and suffered an embarrassing 5 wickets loss. Shot selection could have been better when they are facing a top-quality bowling attack and failed totally as a group. Although Brandon King, Alick Athanaze, Shai Hope, and Shimron Hetmyer got promising starts. Spinners Gudakesh Motie and Yannic Cariah somewhat pushed the game by bagging 3 wickets between them. Now they have left with no option and must win the 2nd ODI to stay alive in the series.
Shai Hope (c), Rovman Powell (vc), Alick Athanaze, Kyle Mayers, Yannic Cariah, Keacy Carty, Dominic Drakes, Shimron Hetmyer, Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Gudakesh Motie, Romario Shepherd, Kevin Sinclair, Oshane Thomas, Jayden Seales
Players to watch out for
Shai Hope is the caption of the West Indies side against India. The right-handed batsman has great control over his nerves and is popular for his decisive decisions on the field. In the last match, he fell short of just 7 runs to score his half-century. He will be the player to watch out for in the tournament.
Motie is a right-arm slow bowler. He currently found his place in the West Indies side and can be the change in the West Indies bowling side. In the last match, he took 2 wickets of Ishan Kisan and Suryakumar Yadav and impressed everyone. He can be the player who can win the 2nd ODI for West Indies.
Possible Playing XI
Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Rovman Powell, Shai Hope (c & wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Keacy Carty, Alick Athanaze, Yannic Cariah, Romario Shepherd, Oshane Thomas, Gudakesh Motie
