WI vs IND Toss Prediction

West Indies won the toss and elected to field first at Antigua. India are due to win the toss this time then and may want first crack at the Sabina Park pitch.

WI vs IND Weather Report

The first two days of the test should be played out in excellent conditions, with a little cloud cover but otherwise temperatures in the 30s in Kingston. Isolated thunderstorms are forecast over the final three days, but they should only cause small delays if anything as the overall chance of rain remains low.

WI vs IND Pitch Condition

Has Sabina Park slowed down in recent years? Certainly it has in the view of its critics, who grew up with the West Indies’ bowlers unleashing their barrage of hostile pace bowling in Kingston. It may not be as hard and fast now, but it is still a result pitch in test matches.

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

Ravindra Jadeja got the nod as the spin-bowling option for the first test in IND vs WI 2019 seriesand justified his inclusion as he scored a half-century in the first innings and picked up two wickets. Kemar Roach hit him out of the attack in the second innings, though the game was already all-but-won by that point. With Jadeja in, India opted for three pace bowlers – Ishant Sharma joining Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami, which meant no place for either Ravichandran Ashwin or Kuldeep Yadav.

IND Key Players

Virat Kohli:

Ended the ODI series with two hundreds and hit 51 in the second innings of the first test, including a century partnership with Rahane, to take the game away from West Indies. He is ranked as the number-one batsman in the world for a reason.
Ajinkya Rahane:

Showed excellent batting form in the first test, scoring 81 in the first innings and 102 in the second – his tenth test century in 57 appearances, complemented by his 18 half-centuries.
Jasprit Bumrah:

His figures of 5-7 in the second innings broke the record for the cheapest five-wicket haul by an Indian bowler in test matches. He is also the first ever Asian bowler to claim a five-fer in all four of South Africa, Australia, England and West Indies.

IND Team Form

Victories over the West Indies and Australia preceded this tour, and India are well on course for beating West Indies 2-0 again – just as they did in October. Ajinkya Rahane top-scored in both innings, while both Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah claimed five-wicket hauls in the match. Bumrah’s 5-7 helped bowl West Indies out for 100 – India’s biggest away win in tests, in terms of runs, as they sealed a 318-run win

West Indies Team News & Key Players

WI Team News

Shamarh Brooks made his West Indies test debut in Antigua in the first test, but there was no place for Rahkeem Cornwall – the giant off-spinner who was touted for his own test debut. After missing the first test through injury, Keemo Paul is available again and back in the squad ahead of Miguel Cummins.

WI Key Players

Kemar Roach:
Claimed five wickets in the first test, including 4-66 in the first innings, and the paceman will be keen to add further to his 189 test wickets – which he has raced to in 54 matches. He also top-scored in the second innings with 38 from 31 balls.

Roston Chase:
His spin-bowling accounted for six wickets in the first match, having become a more important part of his game since his eight-wicket haul against England. He averages 32.96 with the bat in tests too, and top-scored in the first innings with 48.

Jason Holder:
After a wicket in each innings in the first test, the West Indies’ captain goes into his 39th test just five wickets short of 100. He averages 33.27 with the bat and 27.96 with the ball in test-match cricket.

WI Team Form

West Indies have lost their last two test matches by heavy margins. They suffered a 232-run defeat to England in March – albeit having already claimed a surprise series win – and then lost by 318 runs to India last time out.
None of their batsman passed 50 in either innings, and it could have been even more embarrassing than it was having been 27/6 and 50/9 before folding for 100 in their second innings.

WI vs IND Dream11 Prediction & Team

*unchanged. (Pick your own C & VC)

1.  R Pant
2.  V Kohli (C)
3.  A Rahane
4.  C Pujara (VC)
5.  R Jadeja
6.  J Holder
7.  R Chase
8.  I Sharma
9.  M Shami
10.  K Roach
11.  S Gabriel

Shai Hope and Rishabh Pant were the men behind the stumps in the first test. Pant was in excellent form in his previous test series to this one and will want to finish this one strongly too, making him a good pick at 8.5 credits.
Unsurprisingly, Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara remain hugely expensive but you can pick up the batting star of the first test, Ajinkya Rahane, for excellent value at nine credits. All three are key figures in the Indian line-up.
Having not picked a West Indian player so far, the all-rounders are a good place to start: Jason Holder will contribute runs and wickets, while Roston Chase top-scored in the first innings and took four wickets in the second innings during the first test. For India, Ravindra Jadeja proved his worth with bat and ball in the first innings. Hanuma Vihari is 8.5 credits, meanwhile, and was in excellent batting form in the second innings. The question is just whether to select him or keep both of your remaining Indian places for the bowlers.
You need two West Indian bowlers and Kemar Roach is absolutely must-pick at nine credits. Shannon Gabriel is 8.5 credits and also picked up wickets in the first test. That leaves 17 credits for the Indian bowlers unless you have looked to save credits with the likes of Vihari. Japrit Bumrah is probably too expensive at 9.5 credits therefore, but Ishant Sharma – who was in excellent bowling form in the first test, and Mohammed Shami can both be backed at 8.5 credits.
Ajinkya Rahane’s batting form makes him worth consideration, as does the bowling form of Ishant Sharma. Roston Chase will contribute with both bat and ball, however. As captain, meanwhile, he may have ‘only’ scored a half-century in the first test but it is dangerous not to pick Virat Kohli, who remains the world’s best batsman.


Squads -


Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli(C), Mayank Agarwal, Cheteswar Pujara, Lokesh Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Hanuma Vihari, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah

Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks, Shimron Hetmyer, Shane Dowrich, Shai Hope (WK), Rahkeem Cornwall, Jason Holder (C), Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, John Campbell, Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel.
