The Indian management will stick to the batting line up that was used in both the warm up matches except the inclusion of Murli Vijay. The bowling department may feature India’s most trusted spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and R. Ashiwn and Mohammad Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ishant Sharma may be the fast bowlers in the teams.
The West Indies team will field some young players along with the likes of Marlon Samuels and D.J. Bravo. They may give Miguel Cummins a chance to make his Test debut.
Opener Dilemma for the Indian team
Though Virat Kohli made it clear that he is looking to play KL Rahul for the opening batsman slot alongside Murli Vijay but the team management will also consider Shikar Dhawan as he was equally proficient in the Warm Up matches. This will be an important decision for the Indian team.
West Indies are the Underdog
Both the teams in this series look relatively young, but the Indian team has more experience on their side which makes their case strong. The West Indies team is inexperienced as many players in the team have an experience of playing fewer matches. This thing can backfire for West Indies.
Virat Kohli ready to explode
It was the tour of West Indies six years ago when Virat Kohli made his Test debut, but the stats he holds on the West Indies Soil are not up to the mark regarding the talent he posses and hence he will be looking to change those stats.
