    India will win and then get hammered in AUS... India needs solid openers quickly.. Vijay did well in England, but last 2 matches, he couldnt do anything. GG and Dhawan were just plain poor to watch. If the openers can see of 15-20 overs, it gives pujara/Kohli to build and feel less pressure. I am not sure who in the domestic circuit is a good opener, but bringing back GG/ Jaffer/ Sewagh would be plain stupid. Vijay still needs to figure out his technique a little bit. Rohit Sharma doesn't belong in the side. Dhoni can still be the wk captain but I think he should retire from Tests, and focus on ODI/t20s. Bring in samson at #6, I think he is capable. My XI. 1. Vijay 2.??? 3. Pujara 4. Virat 5. Rahane 6. Samson 7. Ashwin 8. P. Ojha 9. Bhuvi 10. Aaron 11. Umesh/Ishant... idk why P.Ojha has been left out, he is a good spinner, there is no one else in Indian circuit to take up that mantle, and Ashwin needs to be the all rounder. Lets hope board has some ideas! This was just plain embrassing

    Weren't WI only in India last year for a Test series? It seems like WI Tests in India have become an annual event.

    I hope we give a better showing this time around. If I have to pick a squad for the first test it would be: Gayle, Powell, DM Bravo,Blackwood, Chanderpaul, Samuels, Ramdin (capt), Jerome Taylor, Narine, Holder, Roach. Pooran should also tour to gain some kind of test experience, while we can have Rampaul, Benn, Brathwaite and Edwards as reserves.

    WI team for the test matches 1 KC Brathwaite, 2 KOA Powell 3 Darren Bravo / MN Samuels 4 C Gayle 5 S Chanderpaul 6 J Blackwood / K Edwards 7 D Ramdin (captain) 8 JE Taylor 9 JO Holder / R Rampaul 10 SP Narine 11 KAJ Roach with SJ Benn and DM Bravo making up the squad. Samuels, Edwards, Rampaul, Benn and DM Bravo will miss out in the first game. WI really need a few BATSMEN who could bowl a little, desperately need to groom a young keeper who could bat ( Pooran maybe) I will love to see Gayle play some test matches batting in the middle order. Imagine the pressure on the bowling if Chris and Shiv are together in the middle order! Good luck WI - I think we will do much better than the our last visit

    Need to get top order batting averages up again....

  • ESPN on August 15, 2014, 12:13 GMT

    Another series to get back Kohli and Pujaras to get back on track.. I would change the whole team and give it a fresh look by selecting new openers.may be selecting top scorers a criteria ..

  • Dummy4 on August 15, 2014, 10:06 GMT

    this time it will not be easy for india .bcoz windies have roach,taylor,holder for pace and narine,benn,shill for spin and also good batting resorces.but wi should try dwayne bravo in tests as alrounder and ramdin is in good form and palying responsibly

    India is never a foreign pitch to any country. thanks bcci thanks ipl so much so that it has always been a close affair for many years now and India have never won comfortably.
