India made a good comeback by winning the first ODI against West Indies after getting whitewashed by the South African team. India secured an easy win against West Indies in the first ODI in Ahmedabad, and things are looking pretty easy for team India in the second ODI too. The match will be played on Wednesday, the 9th of February. The match will take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
the first ODI against West Indies was nothing less than redemption for team India gave their performance on the tour of South Africa. The fans of Indian cricket had something to cherish after a long period of sorrow. The sheer brilliance by the bat and the ball by the Indian cricketers provided them a good win. Every bowler put out his best foot forward and bowled with their full potential resulting in the downfall of West Indies batsmen in just 44 overs. On top of that, the batsmen, too, finished the innings in just 28 overs with six wickets in hand.
You could not underestimate this team even if they lost the match by a huge margin. They might appear in this next match with a strong order and a winning intent. They are quite known for doing the impossible in the cricketing world. Also, defeating India on its home grounds has always been a tough task, even by the best teams in the world. Hence, their loss in the first ODI can be put out from the equation, and let's lookout for the next match.
The minimum and maximum temperatures in Ahmedabad are 15 and 30 degrees, respectively. With no chances of precipitation, we will see a game without interruptions from the weather.
The pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium is a balanced track. The new ball comes on to the bat well and batsmen can play their strokes freely. However, the surface slows down a bit, helping spinners on both sides. Spinners will continue to play an important role on this surface.
