After winning the 1st test match with big margin by an innings and 272 runs, the Team India will be in action again in the 2nd test to seal the two test match series by 2-0. It was India’s biggest-ever Test win and plan to give whitewash to them by winning 2nd Test which gets underway in Hyderabad on October 12.
The Caribbean skipper will hope that the team improves their performance in the 2nd test and level the series by 1-1.
The selectors may have taken some tough calls as they have rewarded a place to consistent performers in domestic cricket, Mayank Agarwal and local boy Mohammed Siraj in the Test side. West Indies, on the other hand, come into this series hoping that they will give some competition to the world number 1 side in this format.
West Indies haven’t won a Test series of late but have managed to win matches against quality opponents every now and then. Skipper Jason Holder will have his task cut out when he leads his side in India.
Pitch Condition: The wicket at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad is expected as a good batting track and one can expect the spinners to dominate the batsmen throughout the match.
