Rajkot: India captain Virat Kohli is all set to return to the cricket field as his team take on West Indies in the first of the two Tests here on Thursday.
India, without Kohli, had won the Asia Cup trophy by beating Bangladesh in the final under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy.
However, this time around, Rohit has missed out and has given way to youngster Prithvi Shaw, who is set to make his Test debut on Thursday.
This will be Windies’ first Test in India for the first time since 2013, when Sachin Tendulkar had bid farewell from international cricket.
