India will begin their 2018/19 home season with a two-Test match series against West Indies. The first of two Tests will be played in Rajkot from 4th October while the second Test will start in Hyderabad from 12th October.

Team India will seek to return to winning ways after a disappointing 4-1 series loss to England last month and a series win over West Indies will boost their confidence for the Australia tour that starts in November.

Shikhar Dhawan has been dropped for Mayank Agarwal while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have been rested for this series. On the other hand, West Indies' young team will be looking forward to putting up a great fight against the number one ranked Test team. Most of the Windies player will be playing their first ever Test series in India.
