Indian cricket team, led by captain Virat Kohli, on Thursday reached St Kitts to play a four-match Test  series against West Indies starting with the opening match at Antigua on July 21.

New head coach Anil Kumble posted a photograph of the team in his Twitter handle and wrote:

West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) also shared a picture of the Indian team after they reached St.Kitts.

This series would be Kumble’s first assignment as the chief coach of the team and Virat Kohli’s first tour to the Caribbean as Test captain.

India will play a couple of warm-up matches against West Indies Cricket Board President’s XI on July 9-10 and July 14-16 at Warner Park, Basseterre St. Kitts.

The series comprises four Tests starting with the opening match at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua from July 21 to 25, followed by 2nd Test at Kingston from July 30 to Aug 3, 3rd Test at Gros Islet from Aug 9 to 13 and fourth Test at Trinidad on Aug 18 to 22.

The Indian squad, besides Kohli, comprises Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, K.L. Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur and Stuart Binny.

India and West Indies had their first Tests clash in 1948. They have met on 90 occasions, with West Indies winning 30 to India’s 16 and the rest being drawn.

The current Indian team has the perfect balance both in batting and bowling to beat West Indies on their own soil. Vijay, at the top of the order, is in form. The only concern for Kohli will be the other opener. Dhawan who has not been in good form might open the innings with Vijay. If Kohli’s feels the other way, Rahul, who made a scintillating century against the Australians might open with Vijay.
