India vs West Indies 2nd T20 Probable Playing XI: India will be locking horns against West Indies in the 2nd T20I of the 3-match series. India currently lead the series 1-0 after crushing the Caribbean side in the previous match. India had sealed the ODI series 3-0. But key players like Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant failed to perform.

Skipper Rohit Sharma, who smashed 40 off 19 balls and helped India win the game, will be looking to continue his momentum in the second T20 also. The Indian team will now expect that Virat Kohli also repossesses his form when they take on the West Indies in the second T20 International in Kolkata on Friday.

India might take a call in the form of Ishan Kishan, who struggled in the first match. Rohit also has options in Maharashtra run machine Ruturaj Gaikwad who has been in red hot form but has only been warming the bench. Gaikwad is the perfect replacement for Kishan. As far as the bowling lineup is concerned, India might not be making any changes.
