The cricket teams of India and West Indies (India vs West Indies) will be face to face in the second and last Test match of the 2-match series from today i.e. Thursday (July 20) in Port of Spain. This is the 100th Test match between the two teams. The Indian team would like to win this match and make it memorable, while the hosts will try to equalize. So far, who has won how many matches in 99 Test matches between the two teams, let’s have a look:-

01

The Indian team, captained by Rohit Sharma, defeated the West Indies (India vs West Indies) by an innings and 141 runs in the first Test match played in Dominica. Team India is ahead 1-0 in the 2-match series. The eyes of the Indian team will be on ‘cleansweep’ in the series. Both the teams have played 99 Test matches so far, in which the Caribbean team has the upper hand. (Indiancricketteam/Instagram)

The first Test match between the two teams was played in 1948 in Delhi. The team led by Lala Amarnath ended this test on a draw. In the fourth Test between the two teams, the result was win-win, then the visiting Caribbean team defeated the host India by an innings and 193 runs in the Chennai Test match.

After this Test match, the Indian team will now go on South Africa tour in December-January to play Test. That is, this is the last chance for players like experienced batsman Ajinkya Rahane to cement their claim for selection in the team of that series. Rahane made a Test comeback after 18 months through the WTC final last month. (indiancricketteam/instagram)

Rahane, playing his first Test in last 18 months, did well in the World Test Championship final but could not get chances in Dominica as India batted only one innings. There is a strong possibility that the Indian team will again bat once. In such a situation, Rahane will have to take full advantage because Shreyas Iyer will also be fit before the tour of South Africa. (AP)

05

There is no scope for much change in the Indian team, which won the first match within three days, but it has to be seen whether the fast bowler Jaydev Unadkat, who is performing poorly, gets a chance again or not. Unadkat, 31, has played only three Tests in 13 years. He did not get a single wicket in Dominica and bowled only nine overs. (Jaydev Unadkat Instagram)

In the first match, spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja spoke out. There is a possibility of pitch turning in this match as well, due to which spin all-rounder Kevin Sinclair has been included in place of batting all-rounder Ramon Reifer in the Caribbean team. (PTI)

07

In such a situation, the Indian team can replace Akshar Patel as another spinner in place of Unadkat. Shardul Thakur can also get a chance, whose batting has improved a lot. Yashasvi Jaiswal, who became the third Indian batsman to score more than 150 runs in the debut test, would like to maintain this rhythm. Shubman Gill could play only 11 balls after landing at number three and he too would be desperate to play a big innings. (Mukesh Kumar/Instagram)

Since December 2018, Virat Kohli could not score a century abroad and would like to fill that gap. This will be Kohli’s 500th international match. He would like to make it memorable. At the same time, Ishaan Kishan, who waited till 20 balls to score the first run in the debut test, will also wait for the opportunity. (Indiancricketteam/instagram)
