Both the teams have some great players in their squad but the West Indies team is looking to be a bit weaker than the Indian team who are well known for their test match records. WI have won 3 ICC tournaments this season including the ICC world T20 men and women both and now they need to show what they are capable of doing in the longer format of the game.
They need to show a bit of patience in this format of the game because this format is all about who stays longer on the wicket to score more runs and the WI team is very well known for its big hitting shots.
The WI team is not so good on the charts as compared to the star-studded Indian team but that doesn’t mean that they are not capable of winning and Indian team can take it lightly. The Indian team will be looking to focus on winning this series so they will not be taking their opponent lightly and will look to give their hundred percent on the ground and come out as the winners.

The worrying things for WI will be that India is the only team in the world who has not lost a test match against them since October 2002. They have not even managed to get 50 runs opening partnership since 2015 in their 21 test innings and the biggest concern for them will be the spin attack of the Indian team because it is one of the best spin attacks in the world and WI players do not play the spin bowlers so well.
India has shown its batting class in the practice matches, as well as everyone from the batting department, managed to get some runs on the board which will surely have a good impact on their confidence.
There are some new players in the WI squad who will lack confidence and it is great opportunity for them to make a mark in the world cricket and they will be up against one of the best batting and bowling line up in the world cricket. India will be looking for their spinners taking wickets because that is what happened in the practice matches as well and this is surely going to be a great game of cricket.

The match is going to be played in Antigua. The pitch is expected to have a bit of grass on it which can help the fast bowlers and another reason would be because India has some quality spinners who can be very dangerous on a turning wicket and cause a lot of problems for the host WI.
India will be looking for an early win in the series so that they can bring pressure on the WI team and the hosts will be looking to break their losing streak continued back from 2002.
The expected playing eleven for India will be from- Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Wriddhiman Saha(w), Ravindra Jadeja, Amit Mishra, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Stuart Binny, Mohammed Shami, Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
