West Indies suffered their biggest defeat against India in the first Test at Rajkot when they lost by an innings and 272 runs. West Indies lost all their 20 wickets in 4 sessions of play and the match got over in 3 days.

If you take all their previous 5 defeats against India, it was all by colossal margins. A loss by 237 runs, by an innings and 92 runs, by an innings and 126 runs, by an innings and 51 runs and by an innings and 15 runs. The last time West Indies won a Test match against India was at Kingston in 2002. The last time West Indies won a Test match in India was way back in 1994 at Mohali.

Against this background, West Indies are now approaching the second Test against India at Hyderabad. Let us analyse what the Windies should do to win the second Test and level the series.

The team is just not up to the task, only way to improve performance us to add experienced players. Allow the young cricketers to have mentorship on and off the field to assist in their gradual development and maturity. Successive huge losses diminishes their sense of confidence and self esteem on the field. Seniors will provide them with encouragement etc.

The question should be "What the WI could do to be competitive in the next Test". They should be wiser in all departments of the game, especially with the way they bat and include the fifth bowler, it is wiser to limit the Indian batting than try to match the Indian batting.
