The main difference between India and West Indies is the key match saving batsman. India has developed quality players who could take up the responsibility to guide the team to safe position in case of some early damage. West Indies batting lineup has got enough talent to outplay the World's No 1 ranked test team but none of them have played a match winning for the team.

West Indies :
- Darren Bravo
