1. Team News - India
Indian team management will happy to see KL Rahul coming good with a 62 at Hyderabad. Shikhar Dhawan was not firing at his full blast since the tour to West Indies in August and Rahul did well to seize the chance with a fluent innings. Rohit had a forgettable outing with the bat though he shone on the field. He would like to come on to his own in the second match. The bowlers coped some stick on the docile Hyderabad track and they will hope to get some more assistance here.
2. Team News - West Indies
Their batsmen did well to post a 200+ total and once Kohli and Rahul found the right gear their bowlers did not have much role. They might be hoping for their batsmen to come good once more and post a challenging total, hoping that bowlers will get a more responsive track in the Kerala capital. It was more batsmen vs batsmen at Hyderabad and both the teams will be looking forward to their bowlers join the game.
