India vs West Indies: ICC World Twenty20, 2nd semi-final – Players to watch out for

New Delhi: The 2nd semi-final of the ICC World Twenty20 is between India and West Indies which is scheduled to be played on Thursday at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

Both the sides have plenty of match-winners, who can change the course of the game in couple of overs.

Though, India are certainly the favourites going into the match, one can't write off Darren Sammy-led West Indies.

Ahead of the big clash here are the players who could leave an impact in the result of the match.

Virat Kohli: The kind of form he has been in, Kohli would be the key wicket for the West Indies. In the on-going World Twenty20, he has emerged as a new finisher for Team India. The way he has played against Pakistan, and then Australia, expectations would be all time high from the No. 3 batsman.

Ashish Nehra: He has been exceptional since making his return into the national team after a gap of almost five years. His rich experience and lateral movement could prove handy against the West Indian batsmen. A lot also depends on how he bowls in death overs. Though, thus far he has picked mere four wickets in four matches, he has successfully contained batsmen from scoring freely in the slam bang version of the game.

Chris Gayle: One of the most destructive batsmen in world cricket, Gayle can destroy any bowling line up in the world. His match-winning unbeaten ton against England in the tourney is good enough to understand what he is capable of. His vast experience against India bowlers might also help him to score big in the crucial match.

Dwyane Bravo: Though the all-rounder hasn't inspired confidence with the willow so far in the tournament, his bowling prowess was on display in the matches against South Africa, Sri Lanka and England, where he picked two wickets each. He also has vast experience of playing at the Wankhede Stadium, which makes him more dangerous.
