India vs West Indies 1st Test, Antigua: India and West Indies will play their World Test Championship opener at Antigua. The Virat Kohli-led side would be brimming with confidence after their annihilation overs the hosts in the limited-overs format. Now with a change of format, India would look to play good cricket as they have been. The Windies, on the other hand, would like to make India’s task difficult.
Kohli, who hit back-to-back centuries in the one-day series, had slammed a double hundred in Antigua in 2016 and will look to score yet another ton to equal Ricky Ponting’s tally of 19 Test centuries as skipper.
