India vs West Indies 2016 1st Test Live Score Toss Teams News Prediction Updates 5 Days :- The season of test cricket is about to begin once again for Men in Blue as India tour of West Indies is starting from today with 1st test match between IND vs WI at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua and this is a golden chance for the Virat Kohli & company to win a series overseas as West Indies are playing with their B team in this tournament.
India Team Preview:
Squashing reports that he prefers to play KL Rahul ahead of Shikhar Dhawan at the top of the order, Virat Kohli almost made it certain at the press conference that the left-hander will be given the chance to play alongside Murali Vijay.
On the bowling front, Kohli said, with the pitch likely to play low, it would be better for them to play bowlers who are accustomed to a stump-to-stump line.
This could be hinting at the inclusion of Ravindra Jadeja and Stuart Binny. Jadeja has the superb knack of knowing where to bowl, and hitting the spot consistently, a trait that will work perfectly with Kohli’s plans for the game.
Binny, too, can be expected to do a similar job. The other three bowling options, Ishant Sharma, R Ashwin and Mohammed Shami are shoo-ins.
West Indies Team Preview:
Fast bowler Miguel Cummins will be in line for his Test debut, taking his slot alongside the only other out-and-out pacer in the side, Shannon Gabriel. Rajendra Chandrika should open alongside Kraigg Brathwaite.
while Roston Chase has an outside chance of taking the number five slot in the batting order. Leon Johnson and Jermaine Blackwood will also be fighting for the spot in the batting order.
