August 30-September 3 from Sabina Park Cricket Stadium in Kingston Final Test match of the series. Friday, 30 August; 09:30am local, 02:30pm GMT
The first Test match Team India won convincingly inside four days after a dramatic West Indies batting collapse which had them getting bowled out for 100 while chasing a target of 419 at the Sir Viv Richards Cricket Stadium.
India will now be looking to maintain its unbeaten streak on the tour in the final match and return home with a perfect record. The Virat Kohli-led side had swept the T20Is 3-0 and won the three-match ODI series 2-0 with the first match being washed out.
Virat Kohli meanwhile, will become the most successful Indian Test captain if his team wins the second match in Jamaica, surpassing MS Dhoni with 28 wins in the longest format as skipper.
West Indies on the other hand, will look to bounce back and draw the Test series after their abject surrender in the first match in which they looked clueless against the Indian fast bowlers, especially in their second innings.
The hosts made one change in their squad for the final match of the series on Wednesday, replacing fast bowler Miguel Cummins with all-rounder Keemo Paul in the 13-man team.
Paul, who was forced to sit out the first Test — which India won by 318 runs in Antigua — due to an ankle injury, but has recovered and is available for selection, Cricket West Indies said in a statement.
Miguel Cummins, with his unflinching resistance, managed to enter the record books in the first Test as he stood firm to score the 2nd longest duck in Test cricket, when it comes to the number of minutes spent at the crease, by playing out 95 minutes in the morning session before departing without scoring any run after facing 45 deliveries.
Chris Gayle, who had backtracked on his retirement earlier this year and looked keen to play in the Test series against India, has not been named in the 13-man squad. Shane Dowrich has returned to Barbados to continue his rehabilitation after being ruled out of the series with ankle injury.
