Summary

  • Ind vs Wi: The visitors lead the series 1-0 courtesy of their 318-run win in the first Test in Antigua and will look for similar level of performances in their final match of the tour.

India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is on the verge of adding a fresh feather into his cap in the second and final Test against West Indies at Kingston Cricket Ground in Jamaica starting Friday. The visitors lead the series 1-0 courtesy of their 318-run win in the first Test in Antigua and will look for similar level of performances in their final match of the tour. Jadeja, who put on a good all-round show in the first Test is likely to retain his place in the side and can achieve a massive feat at this iconic stadium.

Jadeja needs just six wickets to complete 200 wickets in the longest format and if manages to do so in the upcoming Test, he will become the second fastest Indian to reach the mark. Jadeja will also become only the 10th Indian cricketer to achieve this illustrious feat.

Ravichandran Ashwin remains the fastest Indian to complete 200 wickets and if Jadeja (42 Tests) takes six scalps in the next match, he will take the second spot behind the off-spinner and one ahead of out-of-favour spinner Harbhajan Singh.
