Windies seek fight, India dominance

After the small matter of an innings and 272-run loss in the Rajkot Test, the challenge for a beleaguered West Indies side is to show that they can compete with top-ranked India when the teams square off for the second and final Test starting in Hyderabad today. West Indies may have their captain Jason Holder back for the Test as well as experienced pacer Kemar Roach.

For India, it will be about doing what they do best in their conditions -- pile on the runs and let the spinners hound the opposition. All eyes will be on Prithvi Shaw, who scored the fourth-fastest debut ton in Rajkot, with his back-foot punches drawing comparisons with Sachin Tendulkar, but skipper Virat Kohli was keen to give the 'supremely talented' 18-year-old space to be his own cricketer.
