India will look to get back to winning ways when they take on West Indies in the second ODI of the three-match series on Wednesday in Visakhapatnam. The visitors won the first match as Indian bowlers were unable to defend 287 on a slow track in Chennai. The focus will be on India to get their bowling combination right.Â With the par-score at the ACA-VDCA stadium set to be in the 320-plus range, a fifth specialist bowling option could be mulled upon considering the plight the hosts faced in the last game with Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope beautifully planning the chase with their respective hundreds.
