Only Alyque Athanage was able to walk for the West Indies in the Dominica Test. He scored 47 runs in the first innings of his first Test.

IND vs WI Live Score: Akshar can get a chance
Rahane could not walk on Dominica’s slow and turn taking pitch. It is expected that a spin pitch will also be available in Port of Spain. Keeping this in mind, West Indies have replaced batting all-rounder Ramon Reifer with spin-bowling all-rounder Kevin Sinclair. If the mood of the pitch turns out to be like Dominica, then spin all-rounder Akshar Patel can be included in the team in place of Jaydev Unadkat or Shardul Thakur.

IND vs WI Live Score: Rahane will have to score runs
The biggest concern of the Indian team management is Ajinkya Rahane. After the West Indies, India has to play the next Test series against South Africa in December. In such a situation, this will be the last chance for Rahane to play a big innings to bring himself back to the Test team. Batting coach Vikram Rathour has also said that Rahane getting into form will be crucial for the South Africa series. It is also to be noted that in Dominica, India got a chance to bat in only one innings. This can happen here as well. In such a situation, Rahane will have to score runs in the first innings itself.
