India take on West Indies today at the Vivian Richards stadium as the first test is on its way at 7:30 pm (IST), It will be a tough ask for both the teams to stay on the pitch and bat for a while, though the bowlers will enjoy bowling here and will have a good time with the ball.

India is scheduled to play against the Caribbeans today. India played 2 test matches last in 2011 and the other one in 2006 which India blew away West Indies at 1-0 scoreline. India has been practising a lot under their new head coach Anil Kumble which they think to be a boon. The Caribbeans took a great step of dropping Denesh Ramdin and picking up Shane Dowrich who debuted against Australia.

It’s the first match together for the skipper kohli and the new head coach Anil Kumble. It will be exciting to watch as how will they react at times under pressure.
