Windies tour of India, 2018
India vs Windies 2nd Test Match Preview
After registering a massive win by an inning and 272 runs in the first test, both India and Windies will now meet at Hyderabad for the second and last test of the series. Men in Blue are already ahead by 1-0 in the two-match series and, after looking through the performance in the first test, would be hoping to end the series by 2-0.
After winning the toss, India decided to bat first and declared the innings at 649/9 with the help of stellar centuries from Prithvi Shaw, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja. In response, the visitors were bowled out for 181 in the first innings and 196 in the second innings, after follow-on.
While India looks confident of registering another win, Windies will have to put on a better show from both bat and ball if they wish to give some fight to the hosts. Inability to play spin and lack of temperament was clearly visible in Windies batting. At the time when they needed to understand the flight and turns of Indian spinners, Windies batters were busy in charging in and attacking them which eventually led to falling of wickets.
With Jason Holder hoping to get in shape for the match and Shannon Gabriel still doubtful, let’s see if Windies can bring in some twist to the Hyderabad test.
