It will be a do-or-die situation for the Virat Kohli-led India cricket team when they take on the Windies cricket team in the second tie of their three-match One Day International (ODI) series at ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam, on Wednesday (December 18). The West Indies cricket team under Kieron Pollard is leading the series 1-0 after handing the Men in Blue a humiliating defeat by 8 wickets in Chennai. Despite posting 287/8 on a slow track in Chennai, India failed to defend the total as Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope slammed hundreds to guide West Indies to a comfortable win, with 13 balls to spare.

The humidity level is expected to be high during India vs West Indies second ODI in Visakhapatnam and there is no chance of a rain during the 100 overs of the game.
The Vizag pitch is generally good for batting, with even bounce, and batsmen could play their shots on the rise, unlike the sticky Chepauk wicket. Given the winter season in India, dew will play a significant role which means the team winning the toss would most likely choose to field first.
