2nd and final Test will begin at 09:30 am IST on Wednesday and it will be telecast live in India on Star Sports, Star Cricket and ESPN channels. For live streaming, you can log on to Star Sports official website.

The second Test match between India and West Indies is perhaps the most hyped in the history of world cricket, as batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar, who has made many records in his illustrious career spanning over two decades, will play his 200th and final Test match. Hysteric scene is expected at Wankhede Stadium as fans from around the world throng the venue to witness their idol play for the last time.

India will enter the contest on high confidence after winning the previous encounter by an innings and 51 runs. MS Dhoni and boys will be keen to give a fitting farewell to Tendulkar with series win.

On the other hand, West Indies look lost at the moment, with batsmen failing to perform with their bats. They will be looking forward to level the series with a win. They have the capability to surprise the host, and for that to happen, their batsmen have to put in their acts together and put big score on the board.

Previous Meetings:

West Indies have 30-15 win-loss and 44 drawn record against India out of 89 matches played.

Team News:

MS Dhoni is expected to field the same squad that won the previous Test convincingly at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. West Indies are also unlikely to change the squad. It is not sure if Kemar Roach, who missed the previous match due to a shoulder injury, will join the squad on Thursday.

Preview:

India’s batting line-up looks formidable, but top order collapse in the previous match will worry the think tank. It was Rohit Sharma (177), Ravichandran Ashwin (124) and Dhoni (42) who came to the rescue. Top order will be expected perform in Mumbai.

Bowlers did a commendable job in the 1st Test with Mohammad Shami leading the pact with nine wickets, followed by Ravichandran Ashwin (5) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4). India have good chance to give a befitting farewell to Tendulkar of bowlers give a similar performance.

West Indies have more things to worry than one. Marlon Samuels was the only batsman who scored a half century in two innings. Wickets fail like a pack of cards in Kolkata, which will trouble them in the back of their mind. Batsmen should perform with their bats if they are to spoil Tendulkar’s final match.

Shane Shillingford took six wickets from an innings, including that of Tendulkar’s and the openers. He almost took away the match from India but other bowlers looked ordinary. He should rip into the batting line up of the opponents again.

Preview 2nd Test India Vs West Indies; Sachin’s 200th and final

Mumbai, Nov 14: Without doubt the most enduring phenomenon in modern cricket and India’s biggest sporting icon, Sachin Tendulkar is all set for an epic curtain call starting today when he steps on the field against the West Indies for his 200th and final Test where emotions will weigh heavy.
sachin-goodbye-nov-14-200-test-mumbai
For once, an individual would be the focus even though it is a clash of two teams and why not, given that the individual in question is a man who successfully transformed from a prodigal talent to a living legend in 24 glorious years.

Tendulkar has been synonymous with the game in India for more than two decades and held in awe and admiration all over the cricket-playing world. As a curly-haired teen with unbelievable talent, he walked in to the cricket field and the hearts of his fans quite effortlessly ever since his debut in 1989. And Such has been his domination in both the places that the vaccum he would leave seems unfillable. Having won the first Test by an innings and 51 runs, Team India and their seniormost statesman will be focussed on inflicting another humiliating defeat on a mediocre Caribbean outfit at the Wankhede Stadium. But the scores and statistics will certainly take backseat for the next few days as a nation gets ready to bid farewell to arguably its greatest and most revered sporting icon. When Sir Don Bradman retired at the Oval in 1948, there were tributes but celebrations of a fantastic career were much muted. But now as world cricket’s most celebrated No 4 batsman bids adieu to the game, there is a silent prayer on everyone’s mind – let it be a farewell to remember. While the onus will be on Mahendra Singh Dhoni to control While the onus will be on Mahendra Singh Dhoni to control on-field proceedings, it will also be difficult for the players not to feel overwhelmed by the occasion and emotions associated with the great man’s farewell.

ADVERTISEMENT For the legend himself, he would like to sign off on a high in front of his friends and family with a knock that will be etched in everyone’s memory in the years to come. Having got a raw deal from umpire Nigel Llong in his penultimate Test match in Kolkata, the highest run-scorer in Test history would expect that a Shane Shillingford or Tino Best do not ‘do an Eric Hollies’ on him as he walks out to bat at his beloved Wankhede for the last time. Legend has it that Sir Don’s eyes became moist and he failed to spot Hollies’ googly in his last Test innings to get out for a duck. It will be interesting how the 40-year-old Tendulkar keeps his emotions under check during the last few days of his glittering career. Maybe he would like to finish with a flourish like Greg Chappell, who scored a century in his final knock before calling time on his career. A bowling attack which has one quality spinner and some really average medium pacers (injured Kemar Roach is already on his flight back home) is something that Tendulkar can still negotiate playing from memory. However, after nearly two and half decades of top-flight cricket, even if the mind wants, the body at times does not respond to the rigours of international cricket. A young Tendulkar would always play the paddle sweep to an off-break bowler in his bid to smother the spin at the earliest. He has done that successfully against Saqlain Mushtaq and Muttiah Muralitharan. Therefore, expect an intriguing battle between Tendulkar and Shillingford as the senior batsman would definitely have a strategy in mind to counter the Caribbean offie’s doosra which posed a bit of problem in the first Test.
