Thiruvananthapuram: West Indies captain Kieron Pollard won the toss and elected to bowl first against India in the second T20I at the Greenfield Stadium here on Sunday.
India captain Virat Kohli said he would have also elected to bowl first. He mentioned that India needed to improve their bowling and fielding performance.
West Indies made once change with Nicholas Pooran taking the keeping gloves from Denesh Ramdin. India remains unchanged as local favourite Sanju Samson awaits his chance in the first eleven.
After registering a stunning victory in Hyderabad, Team India will aim to seal the three-match series with another win.
On Friday evening, India, riding a brilliant knock from skipper Virat Kohli, registered their highest-ever successful run-chase in T20Is as they chased down the 208-run target with six wickets in hand.
Pitch curator Biju had already stated the fans can expect another run-fest at the Greenfield Stadium. "This is going to be a pitch where lots of runs can be expected. Even with likely rains, the pitch will favour the batsmen," said Biju.
