Ahead of the Test series between India and West Indies which begins on October 4 at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot, there will be a warm-up game between the Board President’s XI and Windies at Vadodara.
Karun Nair will lead the Board President’s XI for the two-day warm-up game; the side includes players who have done well consistently in the domestic circuit.
