After a sensational performance in the opening Test against West Indies, India will be looking to enforce a clean sweep on the hosts when they meet them in the 2nd and final Test of the series tomorrow. The hosts are well aware of the fact that they have to play out of their skins to harbour hopes of winning or even drawing the Test match.
The No 1 Test team in the world showed why they are the No 1 team for a long time now. The batting department despite facing early jolts recovered pretty well and managed to post a commendable score on the board. The form of Ajinkya Rahane will also bolster the visiting team as the vice-captain managed to score his first Test century in a couple of years.
Date and Venue:
The match will be played at the Sabina Park, Kingston in Jamaica. The match is slated to be played from 30th August at 7:00 pm.
Here are the Dream11 Prediction and Fantasy Cricket Tips:
It is pretty important to pick players who are part of the Playing XI. Hence I would suggest picking the Dream XI team only after the line-ups are announced. The combination must be very important and the choices of captains and vice-captains will be pivotal as they give twice and 1.5 times the points.
Traditionally the pitch in Jamaica has offered something for the fast bowlers in the first two days and especially in the first two hours of the game. However, it tends to get eased out with time and should be a batting-friendly wicket.
With the Indian bowling attack looking lethal, the Windies batters should start applying themselves more. Average first innings score has been around 350 and there is no doubt the team winning the toss will look to bat.
As of now, there are no injury updates from either team. Both teams are looking to play their best XI but that might include a few changes especially from the post.
