Live Cricket Score, India vs West Indies, 2nd T20I: Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the second T20 International match of the three-match series between India and West Indies at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium, Lucknow, formerly known as Ekana International Cricket Stadium. The misery has seemed never-ending for the West Indies and India would look to ensure that the script doesn’t change when the two sides clash in Lucknow.

Brief Preview: Having failed to live up to their reputation in the shortest format, West Indies suffered a five-wicket loss to India in the first T20I of the three-match series in Kolkata on Sunday. Watching Rohit Sharma’s team victory in the low-scoring T20 match at Eden Gardens, one could expect to see an identical contest when the two sides clash again in the second contest at the Ekana International Cricket stadium, Lucknow, on Tuesday.
India have won the Test series 2-0 and ODIs 3-1 in an utterly lopsided fashion. On Sunday, the current World T20I champions were restricted to a paltry 109/8 by Rohit Sharma and Company.
Windies bowlers did well to reduce India to 54/4 at the halfway stage before seasoned stumper Dinesh Karthik (31 not out; 34 b, 3×4, 1×6) and debutant Krunal Pandya (21 not out; 9b, 3×4) got the home side over the line.
India’s last win against the West Indies before Sunday came was way back on March 23, 2014 in the World T20 in Bangladesh. (Read Full Match Preview)
