Series/tournament name: West Indies vs India
Venue: Sabina Park, Kingston
Date: 30 August, 2019
Time: 8PM IST
After a win at Antigua, India look to seal 120 points in the World Test Championship as they take on West Indies at Kingston. Indian batsman have had a decent crack in the middle but the openers are yet to strike good form. The biggest news from the batting department is that Ajinkya Rahane is back in good touch. The bowling has been sharp and exceptional and Jasprit Bumrah and Ishant Sharma will once again be at the forefront of the attack. West Indies, on the other hand, need a lift with their batting and need to fine tune their bowling which is threatening but also wayward at times.
Humidity is high on all days and there are chances of rain on days four and five. The temperature could be around in and around 32°C.
The pitch is result oriented with only one draw since 2000 at the venue in 17 matches. Teams batting first have had a slight advantage at Sabina Park of late as the pitch has slowed down on days four and five.
Injuries and replacements:
Probable Playing XI:
India are likely to stick their playing XI which means that Ravindra Jadeja would continue to keep Ravichandran Ashwin out. Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami will be the pacers again unless India want to
