West Indies is suffering from injury blows but at the same time they have highly unpredictable players who can turn tables on India. Someone like Gayle can easily dismantle the average bowling line up of India. On the other hand they can always bank on an experienced player like Chanderpaul.
Shikhar Dhawan is in supreme form and he will get a good support from solid batsman like Pujara. Rohit Sharma given a chance can prove his mettle in test cricket. Virat Kohli would love to continue his brilliant form in test cricket as well. The main concern for India would still remain to be its weak bowling.
