Indian Team Fly For West Indies In Batches: The Indian team has to play a series of Test, ODI and T20 International matches on the West Indies tour from 12th July. According to reports, the Indian team has reached West Indies for this tour. Interestingly, Team India left for the Caribbean island last Thursday in pieces. This happened because BCCI could not get tickets on a flight for the players.
Because of this, the players who left in the first batch will reach West Indies via America, London and Netherlands. On the other hand, if reports are to be believed, Indian team captain Rohit Sharma and veteran batsman Virat Kohli will fly to the Caribbean island from Paris and London respectively. According to the reports, both the players are celebrating holidays with their families. However, it is not yet clear when both the players will reach West Indies.
Team India will play the first Test after the World Test Championship final
The Indian team recently played the final of the World Test Championship against Australia, in which Team India had to face a crushing defeat by 209 runs. Team India will start the 2023-25 cycle of the World Test Championship (WTC) with a Test match on the West Indies tour. At the same time, the West Indies team played the Test series against South Africa for the last time.
Face to face has happened 98 times so far
Let us tell you that the teams of India and West Indies have come face to face 98 times in Test cricket so far, in which West Indies have won 30 and India have won 22 matches.
