The West Indies-India Test series heads for its last Test match before the white-ball leg at the iconic Port of Spain. The visitors, India registered a massive win by an inning and 141 runs in the first match. The duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Yashasvi Jaiswal starred as the off spinner picked up 12 wickets. While the southpaw smashed a brilliant 171 on his debut. For the hosts, Alick Athanaze seemed to be a top player with both bat and ball.
West Indies are required a world-class performance to salvage a result against a resilient Indian team. The batting has been the team’s biggest letdown but the debut of Alick Athanaz e gives the West Indian fans some hope. Joshua Da Silva will also be a key as he doubles up as a wicketkeeper, making him a crucial part of the team. The bowling will hope for top performances from Alzarri Joseph and Kemar Roach.
On the other hand, Team India seems like the clear favourites to register a win in this fixture as well. The batting has a dynamic quality with the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Yashavi Jaiswal in top form. Whereas in the bowling department, the spin-bowling duo of Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin will be crucial for India’s chances.
