India's XI for 2nd Test vs West Indies: Mukesh Kumar Debut?

Top Online Casino And Sports Betting

Here’s our predicted India playing XI for the second Test against West Indies:

After their commanding victory by an innings and 141 runs in just three days, it is unlikely that there will be major changes in the playing eleven. However, the question remains whether left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat will get another opportunity. Unadkat, who played only his third Test in 13 years, failed to pick a wicket in Dominica and bowled just nine overs.

The spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja

Thrived on the turning track in the series opener, and it is expected that another spinner-friendly pitch awaits them, as the West Indies is replacing batting all-rounder Ramon Reifer with spin all-rounder Kevin Sinclair. For the second Test against West Indies, India’s predicted XI could see a few changes. Shardul Thakur might be benched to make way for the debut of Mukesh Kumar, who could get his maiden game. Yashasvi Jaiswal, after his impressive 150-run debut, will be eager to continue his brilliant form.

Shubman Gill, who had a short stint at number three in the first Test

Virat Kohli, aiming for an overseas Test hundred since December 2018, will be eyeing a big knock after his gritty 76 in the opener. Ishan Kishan, who impressed with his keeping skills against Ashwin and Jadeja on his debut, will be waiting for his chance to shine with the bat. The second Test between India and West Indies kicks off in Port of Spain, Trinidad, on Thursday. India’s Predicted XI vs West Indies in second Test: Rohit Sharma, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mukesh Kumar, Navdeep Saini, Mohammad Siraj
