KL Rahul replaces Murali Vijay for the 2nd Test Match vs WI


Mumbai: Indian opener Murali Vijay has been ruled out of the second Test due to a thumb injury. KL Rahul, the back-up opener in the side, will replace Vijay and partner Shikhar Dhawan upfront. Virat Kohli’s Indian Cricket Team will be aiming to extend their 1-0 lead after securing a record innings and 92-run win in Antigua. For the West Indies, they will be aiming for a strong show in Jamaica after failing in all departments in the first Test.

Murali Vijay, who suffered a thumb injury in the first Test, could miss the match and KL Rahul could come in. With the pitch reportedly spotting a green look, India might look to play four pacers. Kohli could go in with Stuart Binny, who provides him a medium-pace option as well as adds to the lower middle-order. The batting looks in great touch with Kohi continuing on his magnificent form. His maiden double hundred in Tests has ticked off yet another box in his illustrious career and he looks unstoppable.
