    Pitch Report

    The pitch at Windsor Park in Dominica is anticipated to aid pacers on the opening day before becoming easier to bat on days two and three. It would be difficult for batsmen since the pitch is likely to benefit spinners depending on how much it has been used.

    In 2011, both sides met at Windsor Park in Dominica. West Indies only managed 204 runs in the first innings. Ishant Sharma was the standout bowler, taking 5 for 77. In response, India scored 347 runs, with MS Dhoni top scoring 74.

    West Indies scored 322 in the second innings, led by centuries from Kirk Edwards and Shivnarine Chanderpaul. India scored 94 for 3 when the match was called off, needing 180 runs to win.

    The Test series against the West Indies will kick off Team India’s second cycle of Test Championship campaign. While the seasoned player has been replaced, a new face has also been introduced.
