Praveen Kumar is out for the 1st three matches as he is suffering from an injury. Indian team would be playing in absence of Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni. This implies the Indian fans will again have to wait a bit long for Sachin’s 100th International century. Virender Sehwag is the captain for this series.
Indian batting department has a strong bench strength with talented batsmen like Gambhir, Raina, Rahane, Kohli, Sharma and Patel. Bowling department looks stable in presence of Ashwin who took a lot of wickets in the recently concluded test series.
West Indies team received a boost in their confidence during the 3rd test where they showcased a lot of courage. With a power hitter like Pollard back into the side, the West Indies camp now looks a stronger batting outfit.
