India vs West Indies (Ind vs WI) 2nd T20I, Thiruvananthapuram Weather Forecast and Pitch Report: Clouds are expected to hover over Thiruvananthapuram, where India will take on West Indies for the second match of their ongoing three-match T20I series, in the first half of the day but these clouds are expected to move away in the afternoon.
The Greenfield Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram will host only its second T20I on Sunday. The only T20I played at this venue was in 2017 when India beat New Zealand by six runs in a rain-curtailed clash.
The temperature is expected to be between 25 and 30 degrees Centigrade in the evening.
Pitch Report: Another high scoring encounter can be expected in the 2nd T20I, with 416 runs having been scored in 38.4 overs on Friday.
“This is going to be a pitch where lots of runs can be expected. Even with likely rains, the pitch will favour the batsmen,” the pitch curator was quoted as saying by PTI.
