West Indies vs India, 2nd Test Match Preview

 

Presence of a greenish tinge on the Sabina Park surface on the eve of the second Test in Jamaica will ensure fair amount of bounce and carry. Which in a way will help new brand of Batters in India.

Amit Mishra is expected to sit out in Jamaica as his spin partner Ravichandran Ashwin’s shone bright in the first Test with his all-round performance.

Ashwin followed up his 113-run knock in India’s only batting effort in Antigua with a match-winning 7 for 83-run spell in West Indies second innings to set up the huge win.

On a green pitch, the visitors’ three pacers – Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami – will once again prove to be more than a handful for West Indies batsmen, who have failed on both occasions in Antigua.

On the bowling front, a green wicket gives West Indies bowlers more penetration, and thus a good chance against the strong Indian batting line-up.

2nd Test Match Update: M Vijay has been ruled out of the second Test against the West Indies to be played at Sabina Park due to injury. #WIvIND

Wicket! Two in a row! Bravo does get the duck! Blocks down the offside but it flies off the outside edge into the hands of Kohli in the slips. Perfect start for India.

Wicket! Ishant Sharma strikes early! Short ball, Brathwaite can’t handle it and deflects the ball from his chest area into the hands of Pujara waiting at short leg! He avoids the duck but must waddle off with just a single run.
