Team/Injury News

  • Kraigg Brathwaite has scored 12 Test centuries and the skipper is our tip for West Indies’ highest run scorer in this opening fixture.
  • With the ball, we recommend backing Alzarri Joseph, who was in fine form during the World Cup Qualifiers taking two wickets in four games in a row, to be West Indies’ top wicket taker in this Test.
  • Although West Indies have struggled in recent Tests, they have an excellent record at home over recent games. However, this will be a very tough challenge against this India side.

Key Players

Team/Injury News

  • Virat Kohli has hit 360 runs in Test cricket already this year and the former captain is a strong choice for India’s highest run scorer in this game.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin has 25 wickets from four Tests so far in 2023 and the spinner is our pick for India’s top wicket taker in this clash.
  • India are without some of their best quick bowlers but still have plenty of strong players particularly with the bat and in the spin department. They will be very confident of going 1-0 up in the series.

Who will win West Indies vs India Test Match?

India have a very experienced and impressive batting line-up with some real talent in the spin department also. West Indies have some exciting players but overall look to be the weaker side ahead of this game.

WI vs IND Top Team Batsmen

  • Kraigg Brathwaite, Tagenarine Chanderpaul and Jermain Blackwood are our batting choices for West Indies. Chanderpaul only made his Test debut in December 2022 but he has already made a double-century. Blackwood has played in 54 Tests and is a very experienced player.
  • Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill and Ajinkya Rahane are our batting recommendations. Rahane had a very strong 2023 IPL and top scored for India during the World Test Championship Final. Gill has hit two centuries and four half-centuries from 30 Test innings.

WI vs IND Top Team Bowlers

  • For West Indies, Alzarri Joseph, Jason Holder and Rahkeem Cornwall are our bowling tips. Cornwall has 34 wickets from 9 Tests and he will get turn from this surface. Holder is an impressive bowler irrespective of the format or pitch and has best figures of 6-42.
  • We are backing Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Siraj for India. Ashwin and Jadeja have taken 51 Test wickets between them so far this year and they are recognised as two of the best spinners in the world. Siraj has developed into a very accurate and competitive bowler over recent years.

WI vs IND Prediction

Neither team comes into this Test Match in strong form in this format although it should be noted that India’s last three games have been against Australia with West Indies’ against South Africa and Zimbabwe. India are not at full strength and West Indies are a strong side at home but we are still predicting India to be too good with both bat and ball. Our prediction is for India to win this Test.
