India vs West Indies 1st Test: Playing XI, Full Squads, When & Where To Watch

    India vs West Indies 1st Test

    After the disappointing loss in the finals of the World Test Championship (WTC) finals at the hands of Australia, Team India will be shifting their focus to the upcoming India vs West Indies month-long tour.

    India will be touring West Indies for 2 Tests, 5 T20Is and 3 ODIs and would be hoping to have a clean-sweep and raise their confidence levels ahead of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 at home.

    Rohit Sharma will be leading in the Tests and ODIs and Hardik Pandya will be donning the captain’s hat in the 5-match T20I series. There was a huge uproar on social media as Rinku Singh wasn’t given his maiden call-up to the national team.

    The selectors preferred Mumbai Indians (MI) batter Tilak Verma ahead of star finisher of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Rinku Singh. India vs West Indies tour will kick-start from 12th July 2023 with the 1st Test match.

    India are the number 1 ranked Test side in the world. On the other hand, West Indies are in the 8th position and have a lot of catching up to do.
