The tour of West Indies will start from October 4 from the Rajkot Test. The Caribbean team will play the Test series of the first two matches. After that he will play five-match ODI series and then three-match T-20 International series.
West Indies got the chance to play pre-practice matches against Team India before the first test, which was a draw. Ankit Bawne and West Indies’s Sunil Ambrose scored a century in the two-day practice match on behalf of Board President XI.
However, Team India needs to be careful of the West Indies because the stats in the test between the two teams are astonishing. However, Team India is considered to be a hot favorite of this series, but despite this, he can not take the Windies lightly in any situation.
A total of 94 Test matches have been played between India and the West Indies so far, out of which Team India won only 18, while 30 matches were played by the Caribbean team. 46 Test draws. Let’s take a look at the data between India and West Indies:
Total – 94 Tests
India won- 18
West Indies won by 30 runs
Draw – 46
Test records played between the two teams in India are as follows
Total matches- 45
India won- 11

In view of this, the West Indies team’s side is huge in terms of records. However, Team India is expected to be dominating in the two-match Test series because the Caribbeans now have no edge in what happened in the 80s.
