Avesh Khan comes in for Ravi Bishnoi as Rohit Sharma says, “Rohit Sharma: It was quite pleasing for us, the way we played first game. We want the guys to be able to bat anywhere and don’t want them to be batting in specific positions. Bishnoi misses out unfortunately and Avesh Khan comes in. It’s unfortunate that he misses out but we are trying whatever we can from the team’s perspective.”
India will look to continue their dominant form against the West Indies as they eye a cleansweep in the T20I series as well after the 3-0 win in the ODI series. West Indies on the other hand would be desperate to make a statement after losing 4 matches till now of the tour.
IND vs WI 2nd T20I Playing XI:
India: Rohit Sharma(c), Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh
West Indies: Kyle Mayers, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran(w/c), Rovman Powell, Shimron Hetmyer, Devon Thomas, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Odean Smith, Alzarri Joseph, Obed McCoy
