India vs West Indies: Windies confident about comeback in 2nd Test

Ind v WI,India vs West Indies,India vs Windies

After a crushing defeat against India in the first Test match in Rajkot, West Indies player Roston Chase said that anything is possible and West Indies can overcome the defeat. The five-match ODI series starts on 21 October in Guwahati, before the action shifts to Visakhapatnam, Pune, Mumbai, and Thiruvananthapuram.

"Mohammed Shami has been included precisely for that reason. We are looking for a third pacer, and preferably a fourth in England", chairman of selectors MSK Prasad said on Thursday after announcing the 14-member squad.

Fast bowler Mohammed Shami, who last played an ODI over a year ago, was added to the pace attack. "We've made a decision to rotate our players so that we can avoid break downs", Prasad said. Ambati Rayudu, after a good Asia Cup performance, will retain his place even if Kohli decides to play. "We have given a few opportunities to Karthik". And after taking a break during the recently concluded Asia Cup, Virat Kohli is back in command as India's skipper.

However, the primary bone of contention will be whether the selectors and the team management will at least agree on having a cover batsman for Dhoni, whose wicketkeeping remains sharp but batting form has been on the slide. While Pandya had injured his lower back in the Asia Cup match against Pakistan to be ruled out of the tournament, Jadhav won India the title with an injured hamstring.

Dinesh Karthik was left out of the squad to make way for Pant, and allrounders Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya had not yet recovered from their injuries. Kohli's performance against West Indies in the first Test hinted that the Run Machine is perfectly fit and he might not be inclined to take any further rest.
