india test matchNew Delhi, Friday, September 12 – After seeing both success and failures during the tour of England, India are going to contest in opposition to West Indies at home in the Bilateral series. 3 Test, 5 One-Day International and only T20 matches will take place in different stadiums of the country. Being the host, India will have the advantage of playing at home in front of the Indian cricket fans, who are considered louder and energetic as compared to other supporters hailing from various parts of the world.

Here is to mention that it is difficult for other countries to defeat India on their soil. Playing in India is not easy for all the teams but since most of the Caribbean players have participated in Indian Premiere League matches, they are aware of the common scenario in the stadium, wherein the mob jumps in joy and shout to express happiness when any player hits a massive six or takes wicket. Keeping this in mind, both the squads appear to be at the same stage. Victory will be logged only by the team, which is not going to leave any stone unturned to read the mood of the pitch and play accordingly.

Not to forget that most of the India batsmen got back to form in the lately played ODI series against England, who inflicted a humiliating loss of 3-1 on the Test matches, which is considered real cricket. Definitely, the upcoming series, which will be played at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi, ACA-VDCA Stadium in Visakhapatnam, Barabati Stadium in Cuttack, Eden Gardens in Kolkata, Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala, Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi, Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore and Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, is going to grab eyeballs. Cricket experts see it as the best opportunity for the youngsters to sharpen their tools to get ready for 2015 Cricket World Cup. If truth be told, then matches that are scheduled to start from Oct 8 to Nov 15 can be a great occasion for senior players as well to hone their skills.

Bowling has been a major issue for Indian team. Most of the time Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni likes to pick at least two all-rounders to get wickets and runs while bowling and batting, respectively. Part-time bowlers give timely breakthroughs during the competition, poising its chance to win the match. It is though good to see all players trying to put their best foot forward, however, main strike bowlers need to standout with wicket-taking deliveries. A lot can be learnt from India vs. West Indies contest. Success at this stage would add to confidence, which will be helpful during cricket carnival next year. Responsibilities on the shoulders of Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami and Ravindra Jadeja are going to be increased and efforts must be made by them to be at par with the hopes of cricket lovers.
