The blues will aim to raise the bar and force the hosts to lose another game after convincingly dominating the first T20I. Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, appears to lead from the front as both his on-field leadership and his bat speak volumes about his all-around play.

Rohit Sharma is just 57 runs away from becoming the first cricketer to reach 3500 runs in the game’s shortest format, setting a new record in T20 Internationals.

In recent times, Indian skipper Rohit and Kiwi’s dominating batsman Martin Guptill is running a close race on ‘most runs in T20Is’ and while Rohit Sharma is currently on the top, with 4 back-to-back games left in the West Indies series, the fans won’t have to wait to witness Sharma breaking this historical record.

The second T20I will be taking place on Monday (August 1) at the mighty stadium of Warner Park, which certainly has 8000 seating capacity (approximately)

The match will start from 8:00 PM (IST), 10:30 AM (Local time) and the pitch reports are yet to be announced. It’s a venue India will be playing at for the first time.
