India’s tour of the West Indies has provided multiple entertaining ODI and T20 matches, but now they will lock horns in their first taste of the ICC World Test Championship.

The two-match series will start Thursday, August 22 at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua, where the Windies have won four out of seven matches.


India are yet to lose a match against the West Indies in this series, with the closest result being the third T20 game, where the Windies went down in the final over.

Virat Kohli has been exceptional in almost every innings he has entered, averaging 234 in the ODI matches thanks to back-to-back centuries.

The West Indies XI could feature one or two new faces, with top-order bat Shamarh Brooks and off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall both a chance to make their Test debut.

West Indies vs India 1st Test betting tips

Shimron Hetmyer for top West Indies batsman @ +600 with Bovada
The young top-order batsman has only recently broken into the West Indies Test squad. At the age of 22, Hetmyer is a very capable player that can single-handedly impact matches. He is yet to have a breakout performance at Test level, but the runs are there if his defence holds up against Jasprit Bumrah and company.

Virat Kohli for top India batsman @ +200 with Bovada
It is very difficult to back any player other than Kohli at the moment. He can do no wrong against the West Indian bowlers and looms as a huge threat. His last two innings have been ODI centuries, which he can easily transition into good Test form. Kohli also has priors at North Sound, where he scored a venue-record 200 back in 2016.

Century to be scored in first innings @ -125 with Bovada
We think at least one of India’s batsmen will score a century, considering they have been playing very well in the other formats and given their great test record. Sir Vivian Richards Stadium has witnessed 13 Test centuries in 11 years, three of which were scored by players that will take the field in this match.

India to win @ -277.78 with Bovada
We rightly backed India in the limited-overs games and we aren’t changing tack for the Test matches. The West Indies are not what they once were, and that sad fact is most obvious in red-ball cricket. As players struggle to get through the second innings, you will see the Indians put their foot down and dominate the poor Windies.
