After securing a giant victory and snatching the lead from West Indies, Team India is ready for the 2nd test match that is scheduled to start tomorrow. The debutant, Yashasvi Jaiswal, was successful in showcasing his thriving potential and got rewarded for his strong efforts by being the man of the match.
Since India's plans worked out very well, it is unlikely for them to make any significant changes in the playing XI. Captain Rohit Sharma recently confirmed that the playing XI for tomorrow's match will largely be determined based on the climatic conditions.
The batting and bowling unit performed flawlessly, so it will definitely be difficult for the selectors to switch players, and it will be interesting to see how everything plays out tomorrow. India is one win away from winning the series (INDIA leads 1-0).
West Indies have a lot of planning to do if they wish to level up and seal the series with a draw.
Rohit Sharma on the playing XI for the 2nd test match
Rohit Sharma is not looking forward to making significant changes and said the following when he was asked about the playing XI for tomorrow's match: "In Dominica, we had a clear idea when we saw the pitch and knew the conditions.
Here we don't have clarity as there is talk of rain, but I don't think there will be drastic changes. But whatever conditions are available, based on that, we will make that decision," Sharma said, as quoted by hindustantimes.com.
Sharma further said: "Transition has to happen, whether today or tomorrow but I am happy that our boys who are coming in are doing well. And our role is important as we have to give them role clarity. Now it's up to them how they want to prepare and perform for the team".
"... And we rely on those individuals and obviously they are the future of Indian cricket and they will take Indian cricket to greater heights,"
