India (IND) will be up against West Indies (WI) in the first Test match of the India Tour of West Indies at Windsor Park in Roseau from July 12. India have been in decent form in this format in the last few matches, where they have managed to win two and draw a game in their last five encounters. West Indies, on the other hand, have been able to win just one match in their last five matches. India starts the series as favourites, and it would require special efforts from West Indies to evade clean sweep in this format.
