West Indies vs India 1st Test Match Prediction :-
Before we move towards Prediction. Lets First of all look at the performance of both the team. Taking the host first, West Indies has a very good side with good pace attack. But in the past they have not performed well in the test match format due to which they are on the 8th position on the ICC Test Team Ranking.

They just have to improve their batting. In their squad they have few experienced players like Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Carlos Brathwaite, Jason Holder other than these new or who have played few matches are in the team.
