Virat Kohli, after a good break from the recently concluded Asia Cup 2018, is back to lead Team India in the Test series against West Indies. Skipper Virat Kohli will be back in business after a brilliant tour of England on a personal level. In this series, Kohli has a golden chance to break two milestones. Virat Kohli needs just 79 runs to surpass 3,000 Test runs at home and will become 11th Indian batter to do so. However, Kohli has not enjoyed a good time against the Windies and averages his worst if compared to his performance against other teams. He averages a mere 38.61 against West Indies.
Skipper Kohli - on 502 runs - is also just 37 runs short of surpassing Mohammad Azharuddin's 539 runs against West Indies in the longest format of the game.
The West Indies tour of India could be a tight affair albeit the Head-to-Head stats favouring the Indians. The BCCI have selected some fresh faces for the series and this could be a test for the upcoming Australian tour.
If we keep Virat Kohli aside, the Indian batting woes have continued and their struggle in England was visible to the whole world. The Indian batting line-up averages on 23.50 with close to 4000 runs in 9 Tests in 2018.
The first Test between India and West Indies will start on October 4 at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.
