West Indies vs India, 2nd Test – Toss Report and Playing XI

West Indies have won the toss and have opted to field

Jason Holder: We are gonna field first. There is a bit of moisture here. So we will try to get into India’s middle order early. We have a couple of changes. We have to focus on the roles and not the results. We have to be a lot more disciplined. The last time we played here Roston Chase got a 5-fer.

Virat Kohli: It is going to be challenging. I think the first session is going to be tough like Antigua. But the advantage of batting first is you have runs on the board and then you can put pressure on the opposition from thereon. That is exactly what we did in the last game even though they had a couple of partnerships. We are pretty happy to bat first. In and out of the breaks we need to be more focused. The 70-80 run partnerships need to be bigger. The bowling has been outstanding, not much to add there. Same XI as the last game.

India (Playing XI): Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant(w), Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah

West Indies (Playing XI): Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell, Shamarh Brooks, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Jahmar Hamilton, Rahkeem Cornwall(w), Roston Chase, Jason Holder(c), Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel
