IND vs WI 1st Test | Today match prediction and betting odds | Two match Test series
India has not lost a single test series against Windies since 2002 and is not looking in a mood for one in the upcoming test series. The Indian team captain Virat Kohli has signaled that he might go with the same squad combination which made the first-ever test series victory in 2018 in Australia, possible for them where Kohli's side won the series with 2-1.
However, for the West Indies, this can be proved positively if they take this as an opportunity. West Indies haven't defeated India in a Test in over a decade, but the times have changed now, with more young, talented and passionate coming in for the team. This test series being a part of World Test Championship give more reason to win for both the teams.
