IND vs WI 1st Test Dream11 Prediction: India vs West Indies two-game test series is set to begin today ie 12th July 2023. India will lock horns with West Indies for the first of the two-game test leg at Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica. The said clash will begin at 7:30 PM IST.

As the IND vs WI test series marks the start of a new World Test Championship cycle for both sides, the focus will be on the new guns, who have been recently given national call-ups. The selectors have made a couple of bold moves post India’s second defeat in the WTC Final and it remains to see how these new players perform.

Last night, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma confirmed the debut of left-handed Yashasvi Jaiswal, while Shubman Gill will be pushed to number three, the spot where he actually played in most of his domestic career. The incoming of Jaiswal will also solve India’s long-standing issue of not having a left-hander in the top order. For the longest time, India have not had any left-hander batter in the top four or five.

In another potential change, wicketkeeper batter Ishan Kishan could also make his debut by pipping KS Bharat. Although the development is not confirmed, the people who are close to the Indian team have predicted the move.

The bowling department will be led by Mohammad Siraj in the absence of Shami and other senior pacers. Team India has decided to go with the combination of two spinners and three pacers in the IND vs WI 1st test.

Meanwhile, West Indies have been on a downfall for the last few years. There are apparent batting issues in the team, which flared up during the South Africa series. The batting is largely dependent on Kraigg Brathwaite and Jason Holder. The India series will offer other players to step up and make the most of the opportunity in their home.

West Indies’ packed performance on home soil has been due to their pacers, who exploit the conditions on offer. The likes of Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel and Alzarri Joseph know how to make batter struggle on a fast-paced surface.
