Team India is set to take on West Indies in the final test match of the 2-match Test series at Queen’s Park Oval, Trinidad, on 20th July from 7:30 PM IST onwards.
West Indies vs India Match Preview
India, the number 1 Test team in the world, blazed past the Windies in the opening test match. Yashasvi Jaiswal sparkled on his debut and played a brilliant knock of 173. Alongside skipper Rohit Sharma (103 runs out of 221 balls), Jaiswal broke many records on his Test debut. Their 229 run-stand in the first Test match became the highest opening partnership by an Indian pair against West Indies. Spin-duo of Jadeja & Ashwin picked 17 wickets between them to restrict West Indies to 150 and 130 in both innings, respectively.
2023 hasn’t been a good year for the West Indies Cricket team, and their loss in the opening match was another low after missing out on the World Cup for the first time in their history. Although, if Kraigg Brathwaite and his men can withstand the Indian spin attack, they can level the series in Trinidad.

West Indies vs India Pitch & Weather Report
The surface of Queen’s Park Oval is extremely helpful for seamers with the new ball. However, spinners can expect the ball to turn and bounce as the pitch wears down. The average 1st innings score is 302, so the obvious choice after winning the toss should be to bat first.
Light showers are expected on Thursday morning, so we might get a delayed start. Continuous rainfall is expected throughout the Test match, and precipitation from Day 2 to Day 5 is 40%, 60%, 50% and 20%, respectively.
- Virat Kohli
- Ravichandran Ashwin
