It was anticipated that the left-right combination would provide the squad with a strong foundation. Before retiring injured due to an injury, Yashasvi Jaishwal showed his promise by scoring a solid 54 runs off 78 deliveries. His outing demonstrated both his adaptability to various circumstances and his potential as an opener. However, Rohit Sharma was unable to take advantage of the situation and left the game after scoring 24 runs off 67 balls. The energetic opener, who is known for his aggressive stroke play, had a fairly quiet inning. However, he contributes significantly to the squad thanks to his foreign expertise.

Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli took up the innings after the openers left. With a score of 27 runs off 49 deliveries, Gill, who has been in excellent form lately, displayed some of his brilliance. He failed to turn his strong start into a significant score, as he was defeated by a strong delivery. The Indian skipper Virat Kohli struggled mightily with the bat, scoring just three runs off of twelve deliveries. Considering Kohli’s reputation for reliability and his desire to score huge totals, his performance would disappoint him. His leadership abilities and tenacity will still be essential for the team’s triumph in the future series.

Senior squad member Ajinkya Rahane once again failed to have a meaningful effect, scoring just 1 run off of 5 balls. Rahane has been going through a slump with the bat, and the club is worried about his poor play. He will be keen to rediscover his form in future games because of how important his middle-order contribution as a seasoned campaigner is. The Indian team’s performance in the first practice test match against the West Indies was uneven. When compared to Yashasvi Jaishwal’s impressive half-century, veteran players Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Ajinkya Rahane had trouble making an impression. Prior to the major Test series, the squad has to solve these issues and polish its preparations. Best of luck to the Indian cricket team for their upcoming matches.
