This India tour of theirs is now the third in the last four seasons. The hosts would have killed for this schedule in the 1980s. Now it's just a yawn. There is no build-up or anticipation to the tour whatsoever. The Champions League Twenty20 drew more selling effort from the stakeholders. It's not all down to the opposition but West Indies have contributed to this indifference. The last time they were here they lost two Tests in little over five days.
1.West Indies are one of the three teams that have won more ODIs than they have lost against India in India. Their 20-17 ascendance in bilateral series, however, could be under fire.
2.Indian spinners have taken 72 wickets against West Indies in the last five years. Over the same period West Indies have not lost even 50 wickets to spinners from any other team. Among teams that have played at least 10 matches against West Indies in this period, only Pakistan's spinners have a better average (23.53) and economy rate (3.66) against them than India's 28.23 and 4.48.
