India vs west indies

We all know that India vs West Indies test match is going on in Dominica at this time, West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite won the toss and elected to bat in the first Test against India in Dominica.

“It appeared that the West Indies team faced a challenging situation, possibly due to the unique nature of the pitch. After being struck, the ball seemed to lose its pace and arrive slower than anticipated. There was a time when the ball used to come with considerable speed, but this phenomenon no longer occurs.”

If we talk about the team then you can see below who is playing.

But this time, the West Indies were overpowered by the magnificent duo of Ashwin and Jadeja.

Chanderpaul’s fortress crumbled in just 12.4 overs as Ashwin unleashed his devastating skills. The sight left Chanderpaul utterly disheartened, with no choice but to make his way back to the pavilion, consumed by sadness. After this, Ashwin did not stop, he kept taking wickets one after the other and kept moving forward, along with Jadeja also gave full support.                            With this, Ashwin took five wickets and opened his paw in Dominica.

India vs West Indies

Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal arrived together on the field, and the auditions were surprised to see that instead of Jaiswal, Gill was expected to come. However, let me inform you, for your knowledge, that it was Gill’s decision to allow Jaiswal to go first.                                                                 This opportunity was particularly significant for Jaiswal as it marked his debut in international matches. It heightened the anticipation of the audience, making them even more eager to watch him play. Then both of India’s openers dominated the West Indies and wreaked havoc throughout the entire day.

By the end of the first day, India had scored 80/0 runs and no wicket had fallen.

Then the next day the second day’s match started but not the second day also both the batsmen did not stop or were collecting runs from everywhere.  but suddenly Rohit gave his catch to Da Sliva on the ball of Alick Athanaze, but before that he scored his century, but it was also a memorable innings. With this, he also included one more century in his record.

Then Gill came but he too could not do anything special. On Warrican’s ball, he also kept walking by giving a catch to Alick.

But the special thing was that Jaiswal was standing on one end or he was increasing the speed of Runs.

Day 2: Stumps – India lead by 162 runs

Now moving forward, the next day was also in favor of India, the pace of runs was increasing, where young Jaiswal was standing at one end and scoring runs, while King Kohli was providing support on the other side.

But unfortunately Jaiswal gave his easy catch to the wicket keeper on Joseph’s ball but it was a great innings from him and it was a start in which he passed.

Then Cornwell also dismissed Kohli, whom we also refer to as King Kohli. After a while, the captain announced to declare the match, stating that at that time either Ishan Kishan or Ravindra Jadeja was playing, and India’s score was 421 with 5 wickets remaining. and India Lead BY 271 Runs.
