India vs West Indies 2nd ODI Betting Tips 09/02/2022

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

The second ODI between India and West Indies will be played on Feb 9 (Wednesday) at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. The match is to begin at 1:30pm IST.

Teams Status


As was expected, the first ODI was pretty much a walk in the park for India. They started the day by winning the toss and then kept on winning most battles.

They got the first wicket in the third over and never let the tourists settle. If it wasn’t for the 78-run partnership for the eighth wicket between Jason Holder and Fabian Allen, the Windies total would have been a lot smaller than the 176 they managed.

Unsurprisingly, the two best bowlers for India were spinners. Leggie Yuzvendra Chahal picked up four wickets and off-spinner Washington Sundar got three. The run chase started comfortable but did get a wobble in between but India were too strong to be truly troubled.

KL Rahul missed the first ODI but is now available for the second, which makes India even more formidable but also gives them a dilemma as it remains unclear whether he’d open or bat in the middle order. Navdeep Saini and Mayank Agarwal are back as well.

West Indies

On the flip side, pretty much all that could have gone wrong for West Indies, did go wrong in the first ODI. The batters failed, the bowlers did not have much to defend and so just one match into the Indian tour they are already facing a battle to save the series.

The Windies top order was almost entirely gobbled up by Indian spin. Apart from opener Shain Hope, everyone in the top six fell to spin of either Chahal or Sundar, which shows where their weakness is.

On the other hand, Windies spinners Akeal Hosein and Fabian Allen went hungry, getting zero wickets between themselves, while returning pacer Kemar Roach was the most ineffective of them all, conceding 41 in his five and going wicketless.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Shamarh Brooks to score less than 22.5 runs @ 1.87

The first ODI was the fourth ODI of 33-year-old Shamarh Brooks’ young career. He got a laborious 12 off 26 balls featuring no boundaries and looked a fish out of water. He bats at number four, by which time the cunning Indian spinners are in operation. We do not see him covering the 22.5-run spread in game 2 as well. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Nicholas Pooran to score 50 runs – Yes @ 3.45

This is a bet not without its risks but also not without logic. Nicholas Pooran averages 51.83 in ODIs against India. Furthermore, he averages an even better 61.40 in ODIs played in India. He got only 18 in the first ODI, which means that a big knock could be in the offing. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


Barring a spectacular upset or a massive meltdown, we do not see West Indies keeping this series alive.
