  • India is on short of experience in playing in West Indies. Of the selected players only 4 players have played in the Caribbean nation. Virat Kohli 3 games, Ishant Sharma 3 games, Murali Vijay 3 games and Amit Mishra 1 game. The rest are yet to face the Caribbean music.
  • The same applies to West Indies as well. WICB have selected the squad for only the first test ignoring the big names. Only Darren Bravo and Devendra Bishoo are the 2 players who had played against India when India toured the West Indies in 2011.
