WI vs IND Fantasy Prediction: West Indies vs India on Thursday, Check Fantasy team, Playing XIs, Injury Updates & Pitch Report for first Test match live

India and West Indies are playing a two-match Test series, the first of which commenced on July 12 at Windsor Park in Dominica and was a comfortable win for India.

The hosts suffered a crushing defeat by an innings and 141 runs in less than three days in Dominica. The Indian spinners, led by Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, proved formidable, taking a remarkable 17 wickets out of 20 and wreaking havoc.

Considering Trinidad’s historical reputation as one of the most spin-friendly pitches in the Caribbean, the hosts have added Kevin Sinclair, a 23-year-old spin bowler, to the squad for the second Test.

This Test series, which is a part of the 2023-2025 ICC World Test Championship (WTC), is the first red-ball series for both teams after the conclusion of the 2021-2023 cycle, the final of which India lost about a month ago. 

India dropped senior players like Cheteshwar Pujara and Umesh Yadav for this series, while giving a chance to youngsters who impressed in IPL 2023, including Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad. Yashasvi, who made his debut in the first Test, scored a fine century. West Indies will be looking to avoid a whitewash, after being whitewashed by South Africa in their last Test series.

West Indies vs India Match Prediction

Given how India completely outplayed the West Indies in the first Test, we expect them to win the second game as well. The likes of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja could prove to be lethal on the spin-friendly Trinidad wicket.
