Rajkot, October 04 at 09:30 AM IST
After Asia Cup 2018 triumph, India are up against West Indies in the longest format of the game at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot.
India’s last Test assignment in England was a disappointing one (4-1 series loss). However, it does not matter much as their record at home is impregnable. The No.1 Test side, India would want to make a statement here, making amends for the loss in England.
On the other hand, West Indies would be happy with their warm-up game against Indian Board President’s XI. The openers had a fine practice knock while Sunil Ambris notched a quickfire ton, although they would want a better bowling show against India to pose a challenge.
Pitch and weather conditions: The wicket at Rajkot is known to offer plenty of runs in the first two days but starts deteriorating from day 3. There will be plenty of purchase for the slow bowlers, particularly on day 4 and 5.
Last Test result at the venue: England 537 & 260/3d drawn with India 488 & 172/6

IND vs WI Dream11 Team
Wicket-keeper: You can go with either of Rishabh Pant or Shane Dowrich but the latter is likely to struggle in spin-friendly conditions. So, our pick would be Pant.
Batsmen: This Windies batting has very little or no experience of subcontinent wickets where spinners get a lot of turn and bounce. You should pick more Indian batsmen and less from the visitors. The best bets are Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara.
All-rounders: Keeping in mind the nature of the surface, you can pick three bowling all-rounders – Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Roston Chase.
Bowlers: The safe bets would be Devendra Bishoo, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav and Shannon Gabriel.
