India’s cricket team, known as Team India, is all set to confront the West Indies in the inaugural Test series of the World Test Championship cycle spanning from 2023 to 2025. The commencement of this enthralling encounter is slated for the 12th of July at the esteemed Windsor Park situated in Roseau, Dominica.
As India undergoes a phase of transition, they are introducing fresh talents into their lineup, including the likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ishan Kishan, and Mukesh Kumar. This strategic move aims to infuse vitality and vigor into the team’s composition.
In stark contrast, the West Indies are currently grappling with a formidable period, marked by a decline in their performance across all formats. Their recent inability to secure a spot in the World Cup 2023 has further compounded their challenges, leaving them in a precarious position.
