India vs West Indies 2nd Test Match | Ind vs WI 2018
The second Test between India and the West Indies is to be played in Hyderabad from Friday.
The second and final Match between India and the West Indies starts on Friday. India, who won three days in one-sided performance in the first match, is 1-0 ahead of the series. There is no doubt that the number 1 team of the Test will also want to continue their admiration in this match. After the defeat in England, this series will be done for India to achieve the lost confidence before the Australia tour. This match is also an opportunity for players who could not perform well in the first Test match played in England and then in Rajkot.
The West Indies will have the chance to finish the match series at par. In the first Test match, the guests could not move beyond the hosts in any field of the game. India has released a list of its last-12 players even before the match of the first match, in which there has been no change.
India vs West Indies: Lokesh Rahul
Earth Shaw has confirmed its place as an opener. It is also believed that he will also be on the field with the same responsibility on the tour of Australia, but his partner will be the one who will very much depend on this match. Lokesh, who started the innings with Earth in Rajkot, is hanging on the left side of Rahul’s team. If he can not show the bat in this match, then he can be out on the tour of Australia. For Rahul, this is the question of saving this match career.
India vs West Indies: Rahane
Not just Rahul This match is very important for the team’s Deputy Captain Ajinkya Rahane. Although in the first match he had given signs of the return to form whether he can retain his goals, the team management will be looking at it. In the last match, Ravindra Jadeja did a great job with both bat and ball. It can also be an indication that Kohli does not change without a change in his captaincy career for the second time, but there are possibilities that Captain Mohammed Shami or Umesh Yadav can give Shardul Thakur a chance by resting.
India vs West Indies: Holders return
There is good news for the West Indies in this match. The team’s regular captain Jason Holder is completely fit and ready to play. The holder was injured in the ankle before the Rajkot Test, so the captain’s weight of captaincy came on Craig Brathwaite. And due to her granddaughter’s death, Kemar Koch, who has been out of the first match, has also returned to the team. They are supposed to play in their second Test match, to see who will manage the team out of these two positions.
Brathwaite will be the weight of the team’s batting. In the second innings of the first match Kieran Powell, the Roston Chase had put the semifinals in the first innings, but none of the other batsmen could contribute to the team. Sunil Ambris, who performed brilliantly in the practice match, was disappointed. With the arrival of the holder, the team’s batting will be strengthened as well as the bowling too.
The West Indies bowlers did not prove to be effective at all in the first Test. Although Shanan Gabriel had bowled well during the initial period but did not get along with him. Ink Hopes and Devendra Bishoo were also not able to show their spin in India, and this was why India had scored a huge score in the first innings.
