Online Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - West Indies v India 2nd Test
The 2nd and the last Test of the two-match Test series between West Indies and India will be played at the Sabina Park, Kingston in Jamaica.
After India won the first Test at North Sound in Antigua, it would be upon West Indies to try and level the series in the last match. This being only a two-match Test series, 60 points are at stake per match, which will have a huge say in the standings of the Test Championship.
Despite having India down at 25-3 on a damp surface, Windies lost momentum in the first Test and conceded a 75-run first-innings lead, courtesy of half-centuries from Ajinkya Rahane and Ravindra Jadeja.
Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah took five-wicket hauls as the West Indies batting surrendered in the second innings to get bundled out for just 100 and suffered a 318-run defeat.
No change is expected in the Indian XI as the team is looking quite settled. There could have been a case for playing an extra spinner but with the three pacers doing exceedingly well and the pitch at Jamaica expected to be assisting the quicks, that is unlikely.
West Indies have included Keemo Paul in the place of Miguel Cummins in their 13-member squad and he will be in the playing XI. Shane Dowrich is yet to recover from his injury and stand-in wicketkeeper Shai Hope will continue holding fort behind the wickets.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
West Indies- Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell, Shai Hope, Shamarh Brooks, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Roston Chase, Jason Holder, Keemo Paul, Shannon Gabriel, Kemar Roach
India- Mayank Agarwal, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah
