West Indies vs India – 2nd Test – India tour of West Indies 2019
The Indian Cricket Team is currently on tour for the West Indies and the United States during the month of August and September 2019 to play 2 Test Matches, 3 ODIs and 3 T20I matches. T20Is will be played first in United States of America. Sad news for Indian fans is that MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya will not play for India in this series.
After completion of ODI and T20 Matches, now West Indies will host India for Test matches. This will be the second Test match between India and West Indies. It will be played on Friday, August 30, 2019 – Tuesday, September 03, 2019. Venue will be Sabina Park,Kingston, Jamaica. Match will be held on 09:30 AM (Local Time).
India was performing extremely well in T20 and ODI matches of this series. India is also a better and balanced side in Test format. And this can be easily predicted that India will win this test match as well as they won the previous One-Day Internationals and T20 matches and 1st Test match. India did a clean sweep by beating West Indies in all of the T20 Internationals. And our experts are of the opinion that India will take away this Test match form West Indies. India is in outstanding form since the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and they also performed well in this entire series.
Its been a very long time that we have seen a better performance from West Indies squad. West Indies have world class players but they are unable to perform well from last couple of months. West Indies really need to bring their old aggressive form back else they will face defeats in this series too. We hope to see tough contest between these teams but if we compare recent form of both of the teams, India has clear edge over West Indies. And that’s the main reason – why we opt India instead of West Indies.
This match is scheduled to be the last match of this series. West Indies faced defeat in T20 and ODI matches. They also lost first test match by huge margin (318 runs). Its been predicted that India will also win this match due to their perfect form. All of the key players of West Indies are out of form or not able to perform – what they are supposed to perform. This is the main reason for their consecutive defeats against India.
This last match of India tour of West Indies will be played at Sabina Park,Kingston, Jamaica. West Indies really need to bring their old aggressive form back otherwise the ending of this series will not be good for West Indies. West Indies suffered with defeats throughout the series.
The team Who Will Win the Toss is supposed to choose bat first because conditions are in favor for batting team in Jamaica. There will be no humidity in the atmosphere. It will be batting friendly dry pitch. So toss winning team will opt bat first. Conditions are in favor of batting first.
As discussed earlier, weather is partially good for cricket in Jamaica these days. There can be light rain on the last day of test but for first 4 days, its being predicted that sun will be shinning all around . While temperature will last between 26 and 33 degrees. Conditions are excellent for cricket match. It will be mostly sunny days during the match.
