After India's comfortable win in the shorter format, both the teams will now start their World Test Championship, whose first test match will be played from 22 August.

Let's take a look at the 3 Indian batsmen who have scored the most Test runs in West Indies.

3. VVS Laxman:

VVS Laxman played his first Test in the West Indies on the 1996–97 tour. Interestingly, Laxman was fielded in that series as an opener and in 4 Tests he scored 172 runs with 2 half-centuries.

The Indian team, which is touring currently touring West Indies had early won the T20 and ODI series and now the Indian players are preparing for the Test series. The Indian team is playing a 3-day practice match against the West Indies A team ahead of the first Test starting from 22 August.
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. After this, Rahane, who came to the crease, was dismissed on the first ball and India's score was 53 for the loss of 3 wickets.
After this, Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara handled the innings. Both players played a fine partnership of 132 runs for the fourth wicket. Rohit was dismissed after scoring 68 runs when the team total reached 185. Pujara continued to bat and completed his century.
Pujara retired after scoring 100 runs and then Hanuma Vihari and Rishabh Pant were given the responsibility of advancing the innings. Pant smashed 33 and then returned to the pavilion. Hanuma Vihari remained unbeaten on 37 and Ravindra Jadeja scored 1 by the end of the first day's play.

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).
