ind vs wi series Team India will take on West Indies in the first Test of two-match series beginning at the Windsor Park Stadium in Roseau, Dominica, on Wednesday.
Rohit Sharma‘s Team India will be facing the West Indies in the first Test at the Windsor Park Stadium in Roseau, Dominica, on Wednesday. The Indian cricket team has been the runners-up in the World Test ChamINIpionship (WTC) twice, most recently losing to Australia in the second final at the Oval in London last month.
In the new WTC Cycle, India is planning to make some changes, with Yashasvi Jaiswal taking on the role of the new opener alongside captain Rohit Sharma. Cheteshwar Pujara has been omitted from the squad for the West Indies tour, and Shubman Gill will be batting at the crucial No. 3 position in the first Test, as confirmed by skipper Rohit Sharma.
It is true that West Indies and India have had a competitive history in Test cricket. They have faced each other 98 times in the past, with both teams winning 30 Tests each. However, it is worth noting that West Indies have not won a single Test against India in the last 21 years, with their last victory over India dating back to 2002. This statistic highlights India’s dominance over West Indies in recent years.
The upcoming Test will indeed be an important one for former India captain Virat Kohli, as he has not scored a Test century away from home for a significant period of time. Kohli is known for his exceptional batting skills, and breaking this streak will be a personal milestone for him.
Ajinkya Rahane, who made a comeback into the Team India side for the WTC Final last month, has been appointed as the vice-captain for this series. Rahane’s experience and leadership qualities make him a valuable asset to the team.
On the other hand, West Indies will have their Test specialists such as captain Kraigg Brathwaite, Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Jermaine Blackwood, and Kemar Roach back for the series. These players bring their own set of skills and experience to the team, and their presence will be important for West Indies in their quest for a victory against India.
India vs West Indies 1st Test Day 1 is scheduled to start at 7:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST), with the toss taking place at 7:00 PM IST. Please note that match schedules are subject to change, so it’s always a good idea to double-check with official sources or reliable sports news outlets for the most up-to-date information.
