The second Test match between India and West Indies will start from 20 July. India is ahead 1-0 in the two-match series. Indian wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik has said that Rohit will not make any changes in the team.
The second Test match between India and West Indies begins at Queens Park from Thursday. Team India is maintaining a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series. Indian playing XI is being discussed before the start of the second test. It is believed that Indian captain Rohit Sharma can land at Queens Park with some changes. Mukesh Kumar and Rituraj Gaikwad are likely to get a chance, but Indian wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik has a different thinking.
Rohit Sharma will not change – Dinesh Karthik
Talking to Cricbuzz, Dinesh Karthik has said that Rohit Sharma will not make any changes in the playing XI in the second Test. Karthik said that Team India can play with the playing XI of the last match. According to Karthik, the Ashwin-Jadeja combination has done a great job so far, unless someone’s performance dips, there is little chance of change.
Players have got a break of five days – Karthik
Dinesh Karthik said that the scope of change in the team is also less because all the players have already got a five-day break and in this break the players have spent a good time on the Caribbean beach along with practice. The players have enjoyed the first 2-3 days and have had a good time in the nets on the last two days. Please tell that the first Test between India and West Indies was over within 3 days. India defeated the Windies by an innings and 141 runs.
Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ishan Kishan made their debut for India in the Dominica Test. Yashasvi also scored a brilliant century in Test debut. He played an inning of 177 runs in that match. India won the Dominica Test by an innings and 141 runs.
Playing XI of Dinesh Karthik: Rohit Sharma, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammed Siraj
