Virat Kohli’s Team India will compete with Jason Holder-led West Indies in the first Test of the two-match series starting Thursday, 22 August at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
Although India dismantled the Windies in the T20Is and ODIs, Test matches are a different kettle of fish.
Positioned at the top of the Test rankings, India will be looking to begin their ICC World Test Championship journey with a humbling of the hosts. On the other hand, West Indies, who haven’t beaten India in a Test match in over a decade, will be desperate to record their first victory of the tour.
