West Indies win the toss and elected to bowl first

One change for the Windies - Nicholas Pooran is in for Powell - he lends more balance to the side.

The match will begin at 7:00 PM IST, 13:30 GMT.

India is leading the three-match series 1-0 after winning the first game in Kolkata on Sunday. Defending a modest total of 110 runs, Windies got some early blows to put the hosts under pressure at 45/4.

But Kunal Pandya and Dinesh Karthik guided India to a five-wicket win with 13 balls to spare.

TV and Live Streaming details

Star Sports 1, Sports 1 Hindi and Star Sports select 1 will provide the live coverage of the game across India. Hotstar, the digital platform by Star, will be streaming the match live for its subscribers in India, the US and the UK. Jio users in India can also enjoy the live streaming on the Jio TV app.

Bhuvi likely to return

Umesh Yadav bowled a fast spell in Kolkata but went for more runs than the skipper Rohit Sharma would have liked. According to ESPN Cricinfo, Bhubaneshwar Kumar missed the previous with a gastric complaint and is likely to return to the side replacing Umesh.

India could well try out Yuzvendra Chahal or Washinton Sundar in place of Kuldeep Yadav, or play an extra spinner if the conditions in Lucknow suit the spinners. Windies' bowling in the previous game has some fire but failed to close the game. If Windies' plan to come back into the series, it will be with some good bowling performances.

The experiment of Denesh Ramdin as an opener didn't really work in favour of Windies, so it will be interesting to see if he continues to open the innings with Shai Hope. Initially, not part of the squad, Hope replaced Andre Russell who had to leave the tour with an injury.

ESPN Cricinfo reported that Nicholas Pooran can be a good alternative to Ramdin.

Dew to play an important role

Lucknow hasn't hosted an international match since 1994. The Ekhana Stadium, which was renamed yesterday as Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee Stadium, hasn't hosted a white-ball match so far, not even at the domestic level.

The pitch is still a mystery, but Cricbuzz reported that dew might be a factor in this game considering the current weather in Lucknow. It will be a pleasant evening for playing cricket and chances of rain is zero.
