Story highlights

The cricket board decided to keep the team unchanged for the match that will take place in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday. 

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday named the 12-member Indian squad for the second One-Day International (ODI) against the West Indies.

The cricket board decided to keep the team unchanged for the match that will take place in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday. 

India is expected to enter the pitch with three fast bowlers, meaning it will again keep spinner Kuldeep Yadav out of the playing XI. 

However, Yadav might get a chance keeping in mind Mohammed Shami's expensive figures, where he gave away 81 runs in his ten overs. 

Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav and Khaleel Ahmed were also expensive.

In the first ODI, India beat Windies by a convincing eight-wicket margin, chasing down a 323-run target. 

Both opener Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli scored centuries. 

Sharma had notched up his 20th and Kohli his 36th. Rishabh Pant, who made his ODI debut in Guwahati, didn't get a chance to walk out to bat.

The five-match ODI series, which ends November 1, will be followed by a three-match T20I series.
