India vs Windies: Team India sweats it out ahead of 2nd Test

India make history with crushing victory against West Indies by an innings and 272 runs India v West Indies: Hosts win first Test by innings and 272 runs
| 12 October, 2018, 00:42

India registered their biggest innings win, defeating the eighth-ranked side by an innings and 272 runs inside three days at Rajkot.

All-rounder Andre Russell was also included in the Twenty20 squad to be led by Carlos Brathwaite although he will skip the one-day series preceding the T20 matches because of an injury.

Prithvi Shaw scored 134 runs in the first Test in Rajkot.

The Windies Cricket Board on Monday had announced the squads for the upcoming ODI and T20I series against India which is scheduled to start soon after the conclusion of on-going Test series from October 21.

In the bowling department, Kohli will stick to three spinners - Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav.

On the other hand, Virat Kohli has continued his red hot form in this year in the whites as he became the first batsman to complete the landmark of completing 1,000 runs in 2018 during the first Test.

The Windies were set a huge task just to force India to bat again and swiftly lost captain Kraigg Brathwaite to set the tone for a miserable final session which ended with the tourists staggering to a measly 94-6 at the close.


Similarly, it is possible that along with Rohit Sharma, players that are not part of the Indian Test team will be playing for their respective state teams.

Kuldeep returned figures of 5-57 with his left-arm wrist spin, his first five-for in just his fourth Test since making his debut against Australia a year ago. With a blistering century from 184 balls, Virat Kohli not only got past the Australian great Sir Don Bradman, but also broke the record of master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag.

The carribean batsmen need to show patience in Hyderabad, unlike the last Test where they seemed to be in a hurry to leave the pitch with unwanted shots.

Batsman Evin Lewis, who had turned down a West Indies central contract, was selected in both squads. In a bid to try out some new faces to get their 11 right ahead of the test series in Australia, we expect the Indian side to give a debut to Mayank Aggarwal.

The experience of having rubbed shoulders with the best in the business was evident as Shaw went about his business against the West Indies in Rajkot with considerable ease.

Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo claimed four wickets in an otherwise toothless West Indies bowling attack.
