India vs West Indies First Test Match 21 July 2016 Preview, Predictions
The India team is looking more strong on the paper but anything could happen on the field after all this is cricket. Definitely, West Indies have the home advantage but India is looking a bit better. With the experience of Kohli, Mishra, Ishant, and Rahane India team is looking a balanced team.
I think you all remember that West Indies Tour of India some time back that was on October 2014 and West Indies team left the tour in mid -way and then Indian BCCI took strict action against them but now everything is clear and good. In the last series of West Indies and India in 2014. I think you all remember that West Indies left the tour in the mid-way but everything is clear now.
The Weather is looking good till now. There is no chance of rain and it would be sunny throughout the match. But no one has control over the climate change we can only hope well.
It would be a slower track most probably. So, I think India will come on the field with two spinners Ashwin and Mishra. And West Indies will also follow the same rule.
The Captain will probably choose to bat on the slow and good batting wicket for the test match. And I think 300 to 400 would be a good score on the pitches like this. The West Indies is no more Fast. It was an era when West Indies owned fast wickets. But now due to CPL in regular intervals make the pitch more Batting Friendly.
My Prediction – India will easily win the match in 4 days. Rahane and Pujara will hit centuries.
