The Indian team is preparing for the first test against the West Indies, which will be the beginning of their Caribbean tour. This match will be played in Dominica from July 12 to 16. This is the first test since 2017 that Windsor Park will be hosting. The amazing thing is that the first test held in Dominica was also between India and the West Indies. That match was played in 2011, and Virat Kohli is the only player from that Indian team who is still with the team in the upcoming tests. One more person who is present with the Indian squad that played in 2011 is India’s current head coach, Rahul Dravid. He was a senior player on the team back then. Kohli acknowledged the same with a post on his social media handles.


Virat Kohli shared a special post


Virat Kohli shared a picture with Rahul Dravid at the stadium and wrote a caption, “The only two people who were part of the team in the test played in 2011. Very grateful. At that time, both players were at opposite ends of their careers, as it was the last test in the West Indies for Rahul Dravid and his longtime partner VVS Laxman. On the other hand, Kohli made his test debut in that first test of the series.

Dravid remained not out in the second innings of the test


That time, the West Indies were led by former All-rounder Darren Sammy, who elected to bat first, and their team was dismissed at 204 with Ishant Sharma taking five wickets. During India’s first inning, they scored 347 runs, with skipper MS Dhoni being the top scorer with 74 runs. In the second inning, the West Indies put 322 on board as their batsmen Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Kirk Edwards scored centuries. India got the target of 180 runs to chase in just one session on the last day. During the first inning, Dravid was dismissed for 5 runs but remained unbeaten on 34 in the second inning. Kohli scored 30 runs in the first inning and didn’t get the chance to bat in the second inning.
Dravid had a fantastic career with India, and now he is on his journey as Head coach of the team. After the West Indies Tour, two big tournaments that India is looking forward to are the Asia Cup and the ODI World Cup. Dravid, along with skipper Rohit Sharma, will work together and hope to win these prestigious events.
