The Men In Blue have had their task cut out so far thanks to a dominant performance in the first test at Rajkot. With the all-important tour of Australia in sight, Virat Kohli and co. would be on the lookout to tick all the boxes in the final test.

While West Indies, despite their massive defeat in the first game, will be bolstered by the return of skipper Jason Holder and experienced pacer Kemar Roach in the side having missed the first clash owing to injuries.

Virat Kohli named an unchanged twelve man side for the clash, which leads to suggest that the Men In Blue might field an unchanged eleven.

On the other hand, despite the return of Holder and Roach, the Caribbean side are still unsure of Shannon Gabriel’s involvement as the pacer suffered a niggle at Rajkot.

Predicted XI India: Prithvi Shaw, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav

Predicted XI West Indies:  Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell, Shai Hope, Sunil Ambris, Shimron Hetmeyer, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich (wk), Jason Holder (c), Kemar Roach, Devendra Bishoo, Shannon Gabriel 

Venue: Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad
