Left-handed batsman Dhawan returned to the series against the West Indies after being injured in the World Cup. His performance in the Caribbean tour was disappointing and in three T20 matches against the West Indies he scored just 27 runs and 38 runs in two ODI matches.

IND vs WI: Shami created this unwanted record on day 2 of second test against Windies

Indian team's fast bowler Mohammed Shami has created this embarrassing record to his name while batting. When Shami came to bat in the first innings of the second Test against West Indies on Saturday, he was again dismissed without opening an account.

Shami was caught behind the wicket on the second ball of Rahkeem Cornwall bowling. In this way, Shami has failed to open his account in the last 6 innings of the Test match.

With this, Shami has equalled former India spinner bowler Bhagwat Chandrasekhar's record of not opening an account in 6 innings. Shami's disastrous performance began with the Australia series, where he was out for a duck in the second innings of the Perth Test match.

Since then, Shami has not been able to open his account for 5 times. However, he has remained unbeaten twice in these five innings, but even then he returned to the pavilion without opening an account.

Team India's fast bowler Ajit Agarkar was also out in five consecutive innings without opening an account. Agarkar was consistently out for zero in 5 innings of the Test series against Australia in 1999 and now Shami surpassed Ajit Agarkar's record.

Shami has played 42 Tests so far in his Test career, in which he has also batted in 58 innings. During this, Shami has been out 13 times without opening an account.

1. Rahul Dravid:

There is no doubt that former Indian captain Rahul Dravid is one of the greatest players of Test cricket. Dravid is one of the few players to have scored at least one Test century against all 9 Test-playing nations.

Like Laxman, Dravid was also a part of the Indian team during the 1996–97, 2002, 2006 and 2011 tours. On his first Test tour to the West Indies in 1996–97, Dravid scored 360 runs in seven innings and was the highest run-scorer for India and he scored 404 runs on the 2002 tour.

On the first day of the match, Indian captain Ajinkya Rahane decided to bat first after winning the toss and by the end of the day's play, India has scored 297 runs at the loss of 5 wickets. Virat Kohli is not playing in this match and that is why Rahane has been given the opportunity to lead the team.

Batting first, India did not start well and Mayank Agarwal got out for 12 runs at the score of 36 runs. KL Rahul looked in good touch, but he also lost his wicket on a personal score of 36 runs.

Sachin Tendulkar's 3 bowling records you might not know, No.1 is still unbroken

Cricket fans around the world consider Sachin Tendulkar to be the "God of Cricket". He was a batsman who inspired many youngsters who wanted to become like him.
He has many records, such as the most centuries and runs scored in Test and ODI cricket. His batting record is so great that everyone forgets that he was also a good bowler.

Tendulkar was a unique bowler as he could swing the ball and also bowl spin both off and leg-spin depending on the pitch. The legendary cricketer took 200 international wickets in his career, including 155 ODIs and 44 wickets in Tests.

You may be surprised to know that the batting master also has some bowling records. Let us know Sachin's 3 bowling records.

3. Youngest to take a wicket for India:

Tendulkar started his international career at the age of 16 and on 5 December 1990, when he dismissed Sri Lanka's Roshan Mahanama, he became the youngest Indian cricketer to take a wicket in international cricket.

Tendulkar was just 17 years old and 224 days old and broke the record of former Indian spinner Maninder Singh at that time.

This was not his only wicket in this match, he later dismissed Arjun Ranatunga and then scored 53 off 41 balls and won the Man of the Match award.

2. Defending 6 or fewer runs in the last over:

Defending a score of six runs or less in the last over is a rare achievement. But Sachin has achieved this feat. Tendulkar is the only bowler who has defended less than six runs in the last over.

In 1993, Tendulkar defended six runs against South Africa in the last over to give India a famous victory. He had given only three runs in that over. In a similar situation in 1997, he repeated this feat by taking Australia's last wicket off the first ball of the last over.

1. Highest wickets by an Indian spinner in a single edition of Asia Cup:

Tendulkar has always had the art of breaking the partnership. The only problem in his bowling was the lack of consistency, but in the 2004 Asia Cup, Sachin solved it and performed extremely well.

At that time Sachin took 12 wickets in just six matches at an amazing bowling average of 12.91. Tendulkar took at least one wicket in all five innings where he got a chance to bowl. During this time he broke the record for the most wickets taken by an Indian spinner in Asia Cup, which is still unbroken.

He is the second-highest wicket-taker for India in an Asia Cup after Irfan Pathan (14 wickets).

India will start their world cup campaign on June 5 against South Africa. But all the fans are looking for the match against Pakistan on June 16.
In such a case, Veteran player Suresh Raina has made a big statement about this high octane competition. He said that if the Indian team wins its opening match then there will be no pressure in the match against Pakistan.

Raina said that I do not think any player will be thinking about the match against Pakistan at this time. We need to perform better in the opening matches and if we win, then there will be no pressure on us against the Pakistan.
Raina further said that if we lose some matches in the beginning, then there will be some pressure on us in the Pakistan match. But if we win in the initial matches, then India will be able to beat Pakistan this time too.
Significantly, the Indian team has defeated Pakistan 6 times in the World Cup so far. Pakistan's start in this World cup has also been very bad. In the first match, they had to face defeat in the hands of the West Indies.
At the same time, the Indian team has not played a single match so far. India's first match against South Africa is scheduled on June 5.
