Cricket TV - Tendulkar's 199th Test - India-West Indies Preview

John Pennington and Chetan Narula, covering the game for Cricket World in Kolkata, look ahead to the first Test between India and the West Indies at Eden Gardens.

There is huge attention being afforded to the game, which is Sachin Tendulkar's 199th and penultimate match for his country.

However, Chetan argues that perhaps the focus on Tendulkar has gone a little overboard and it is now time to focus on the contest ahead of us.

The pair discuss what sort of conditions the players can expect, whether Rohit Sharma might be given a Test debut, and if the West Indies can avoid the distractions and genuinely challenge India.

They finish by predicting how many runs Tendulkar will score in the series, which you can also do by clicking the link in the list of related articles on the right.
