Kolkata: Nov 14, 2011

 

Riding high on confidence after their convincing win over the West Indies in the first Test and England whitewash last month, Team India will aim to wrap up the series by taking an unassailable 2-0 lead against an inconsistent Caribbean side at the Eden Gardens starting November 14.

 

Expectedly, all eyes will be on Sachin Tendulkar, whose impending 100th international century has become a national obsession.

 

India have retained the same squad from the first Test match and it is likely that no change will be made in the playing eleven after their five-wicket win at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi last week.

 

The bowling department looks fresh and raring to go having the likes of Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Pragyan Ojha and Ravichandran Ashwin, who bagged nine wickets in his debut match for India.

 

On the other hand, after their impressive performance in the first Test match, the Caribbean side will aim to bounce back hard.

 

Once again, middle order batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul, who notched his 24th century and seventh against India in the first innings, will be the mainstay of their batting order which needs to click.

 

The team management will be worried with the poor show from Marlon Samuels, but, the return of young batsman Adrian Barath, who shot to fame with his century against Austalia in his maiden Test appearance, will boost their confidence.

 

 Teams:

 

West Indies (Probable): Kraigg Brathwaite, Adrian Barath, Kirk Edwards, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Marlon Samuels, Carlton Baugh (wk), Darren Sammy (c), Ravi Rampaul, Fidel Edwards, Devendra Bishoo.

 

India (Probable): Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni (c&wk), R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav.
