India vs West Indies 2nd Test preview: India are all set to take on West Indies in the second Test game of the two-match series on Friday. It will be played at Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica. It will be a do-or-die situation for Jason Holder-led side which has so far shown the worst performance against Virat Kohli-led side.

The morale of Indian players will be high after thrashing Windies in the T20I, ODI series and in the opening match of the ongoing series. India will be looking to maintain the winning streak against hosts. The Men in Blue have not lost a single match against Carribean team since 2002. On the other side, the hosts will be looking to end the winning drought. If they win, they can only draw the series.

The duo helped the team to reach near 300. In reply, West Indies were bowled out for 222. All thanks to the superb bowling off Ishant Sharma who picked five wickets.

After getting a lead of 75 runs, India made 343 for the loss of even wickets. West Indies needed to chase the target of 418. Rahane again played a brilliant knock of 102. Vihari also scored important 93 and Kohli 51. Rahane was the only player in the game who could score a ton.
