India vs West Indies Highlights 9 Aug 2016 – 3rd Test Day 1

West Indies youngsters are learning very fast. I am saying that because of their performance in the second match v first match. In their first match at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua. India won by an innings and 92 runs but in their second match at Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica match drawn because West Indies blast their second innings with 388 runs six wickets down. Now it looks like their third test will be a great competition.

Both captains felt on the eve of the match that St Lucia will offer pace and carry for the quick bowlers through the five days. The pitch had an even covering of grass on Monday, though it did not look as green and alive as the surface in Kingston before the second Test. Scattered showers, though mild, have fallen over St Lucia in the days leading up to the Test. Rain is expected in the first four days of the match too.

West Indies won the toss and choose to bowl first.
