India vs West Indies LIVE Streaming Online, 2nd Test Day 1: Windies skipper Jason Holder won the toss and decided to bat first against India at Hyderabad on Friday. The Indian cricket team made one change in the playing XI, replacing Mohammed Shami with Shardul Thakur. Openers Kraigg Brathwaite and Kieran Powell started cautiously on a pitch that looks good for batting. “Looks like a good pitch. Hyderabad mostly remains the same, hence we are not bothered of the toss but I would have batted first as well. We have to be in the present. We have to focus on this series, just focussing on repeating the things we did in the first game,” Kohli said at the toss.
The hosts will once again have the same opening combination – KL Rahul and Prithvi Shaw – the latter full of confidence after his brilliant century on Test debut last week. Kuldeep Yadav who is still relatively new to the Test side will also be looking to make the best of his chances against the West Indies batsmen. This is going to be a very important game for Ajinkya Rahane who has struggled with form in the recent past. The Indian vice-captain will need a big score so that he can regain his form.
The bowling department has been quite successful in the recent past and both Umesh Yadav and Mohammad Shami will have a chance to prove themselves in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
