India won by 10 Wickets

ABOUT THE MATCH

After registering their biggest ever Test win (by an innings and 272 runs in the 1st Test at Rajkot), India take on West Indies in the second of the two Test series in Hyderabad.

Match Preview

With the win in the first Test, India have improved their overall Test record against West Indies to 19 wins in 95 meetings. While the ratio is still hugely in favour of the Windies, the fact that they last won a Test match against India in India 24 years ago looks very unlikely to change.

iconIndia Team News

Considering that this series is a preparation for the upcoming tour of Australia, Virat Kohli might opt to make a few changes despite the record breaking victory in Rajkot. Despite his recent 149 run knock against England at the Oval, KL Rahul has struggled in Tests with 8 scores of 10 runs or less in his last 16 innings. He could make way for debutant Mayank Agarwal.

Other changes could be Hanuma Vihari for Ajinkya Rahane who is struggling for form and pacer Mohammed Siraj for the inconsistent Umesh Yadav.

iconWest Indies Team News

There is some good news for West Indies with pacers Kemar Roach and Jason Holder returning to the team. Roach had returned home just before the first Test after his grandmother passed away while Jason Holder picked up an ankle niggle right before the first Test began. With these two back in the team, the Windies will look to give the Indian batsmen a bit more of a fight.

Pitch Conditions

 

If reports are to be believed, a bouncy pitch is being prepared in Hyderabad in preparation for the Australia tour. 16 of the 20 Windies wickets were taken by spinners in Rajkot but in Hyderabad, India might go for a hard pitch with some bounce to test pacer Mohammed Siraj.

Toss Prediction

 

The team winning the toss is likely to bat first.

Our Match Prediction

India will easily win this match as well and claim the lopsided series 2-0.
