Before the match tomorrow, the Indian team made a lot of sweat and tremendous practice on the field today.

 

Santosh Singh, our cricket expert, Predict says that Indian team will not have to work hard to defeat the West Indies, but cricket is still a game of uncertainties, to see how India can beat the West Indies by performing well.

 

WEST INDIES TEAM

It is not India’s most vigorous team, but even then she is capable of dominating the fledgeling West Indies.

There is no lack of talent in the Caribbean team but they do not have a special experience playing in India.

Only five of his 15-member team have the experience of playing Test in India and include fast bowler Kemar Roach.

 

Other players who have experience of playing Test in India include Devendra Bishoo, Craig Braithwaite, Keiran Powell and Shane Gabriel.

West Indies are playing Test in India for the first time after playing in Tendulkar’s farewell series in November 2013.

Under the supervision of coach Stuart Law, the team has given some good results.

He defeated England in Leeds last year, in which the Shay Hope played 147 innings and an unbeaten 118 runs.

The West Indies are touring India after playing 1-1 against Sri Lanka in the country and after registering a 2-0 win over Bangladesh.

Law is very much expected from its team. His team had practised in Dubai before playing a two-day practice match in Vadodara.

Law said, “It is always difficult for other teams to visit India. We have to show the world. We can play well and take advantage of the opportunity. ‘

 

India will not have much to gain against the eighth-ranked West Indies, but the Caribbean team will not give up its impact.

They are looking forward to his first win against India in 2002, while on the Indian soil, he has not won any match since 1994.
