India vs West Indies 1st Test Preview
A long test season begins for India with the first test match at Antigua. India faces West Indies in a month long test series followed by test series with teams like New Zealand, England and many more to name. This also provides a long deserved break to MS Dhoni who only plays in the limited versions of cricket for India. This also means Virat Kohli would be back in action as the skipper of India.
Last time when India toured to West Indies in 2011, India still had big guns like VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid in the team. MS was then leading the team and Virat was relatively new to the scene. Things have changed now. West Indies recently clinched the T20 World Cup and they must be high at confidence. Similarly India as a team are well settled now but just in a sort of transition phase. Virat as a captain has done a great job so far in Australia and Sri Lanka. He has to prove his mettle in West Indies.
