Before the second test match against the West Indies, Rohit Sharma gives playing 11 clarity

On Tuesday, captain Rohit Sharma ruled out some drastic changes in the winning combination before the second test match against the West Indies by admitting that inclement weather hasn't helped in getting clarity about the Queens Park Oval track. India won the first Test by an innings and 141 runs, and unlike earlier times, the Indian captain made a refreshing change by announcing Yashasvi Jaiswal's debut and Shubman Gill's new batting position.
Rohit said 48 hours before leading India to a historic 100th Test against the West Indies, "In Dominica, we had a clear idea when we saw the pitch and knew the conditions. Here we don't have clarity as there is talk of rain, but I don't think there will be drastic changes. But whatever conditions are available, based on that, we will make that decision."
While the Captain didn't name anyone, the only weak link in the line-up is left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat, who didn't look as potent as Mohammed Siraj or Shardul Thakur in the opener.
