India vs West Indies 1st Test Day 1 Preview
It’s not the kind of mock test India will fancy appearing ahead of their main examination. First, Australia would be a far sterner challenge in their backyard than the West Indies here in India. Second, the conditions that the hosts may try to simulate might not come too close to those Down Under. But 24 hours ahead of the first ball of the series, the center wicket at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Ground wears a very greenish look. Close enough?
On the face of it, India are heavy favourites to win both Tests of the series, but that isn’t the only box they want to tick. India come into this series making a few strong statements with their selection moves. For beginners, there’s no Murali Vijay or Shikhar Dhawan, instead they have Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal, two untested openers at the top level, vying for an opening spot. The team management, on Wednesday (October 3), confirmed that it would be the 18-year-old Mumbai lad making his Test debut, having earned his maiden call-up earlier during the second half of the England tour.
