Trinidad: With all guns blazing, Indian Cricket team is living a dominant life in the four-Test match series against West Indies. It will be a fourth test match between the duo where Caribbean will play for pride while Virat Kohli and brigade will concentrate on continuing their habit of winning.

Disarming Windies, Indians are leaving it nowhere in the Test series.

India will yet again clash with the Jason Holder led West Indies in the fourth face-off from August 18 at the Queen’s Park Oval stadium.

India-

  • Despite being recovered from thumb’s injury, Murali Vijay is still a topic of suspense in the playing 11.
  • Pujara, who would have given few more chances, was replaced by Rohit Sharma in the third Test game.
  • The same could have been repeated in the fourth Test.
  • Just like Rohit Sharma in Tests, Shikhar Dhawan is also becoming a burden for the side.
  • Impressive KL Rahul, who continued his spectacular form by scoring a fifty in the previous game, is expected to play the fourth Test.
  • Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane are the most reliable among other batsmen.
  • Skipper seems to be much impressed by the crucial partnership between R.Ashwin and Wriddhiman Saha as had tagged it as a top-class Cricket.
  • Ashwin, Saha, Ravindra Jadeja and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will look to score some more runs for the side.
  • Demoralising Windies batsmen, Indian pace has been strengthened after Bhuvi’s fiery comeback. It was his five-wicket haul which has taken the hosts on the back-foot in the third Test.
  • Shami and Ishant Sharma are in full flow with disciplined spells.

West Indies-

  • Windies will chiefly depend on batsmen including Kraigg Brathiwaite, Blackwood, Marlon Samuels, Darren Bravo and Roston Chase.
  • Caribbean is lacking consistency from the start of the series.
  • Excluding second Test match draw with Chase’s brilliance, West Indians have been dismantled by the Indians.
  • If team wants to beat India, Cummins has to repeat his blazing spells of the last Test match.
  • Joseph, Gabriel, Chase are the other charms in their side which have to shine in the last encounter if they want something out the series.

India will also play two T20s at Fort Lauderdale in Florida on August 27 and August 28 respectively.
