The first match of the two-match Test series (IND vs WI Test 2023) between India vs West Indies…
The first match of the two-match Test series (IND vs WI Test 2023) between India vs West Indies is to be played tomorrow i.e. from July 12 at Windsor Park. Both the teams have announced their squads for this series. At the same time, with this series, Virat Kohli will achieve a special achievement in his name. In fact, the West Indies team has given Tegnarayan Chanderpaul a chance in the Test series and his father Shivnarine Chanderpaul has also played for the country. In such a situation, Virat Kohli has played cricket against Shivnarine as well and is now ready to play against his son Tegnarine Chanderpaul. Virat is the second player to do so for India, as earlier Sachin Tendulkar has played cricket against a father-son duo.
Let us tell you that exactly 12 years before Virat Kohli made his Test debut and during that time he played his first Test match against West Indies only. While Shivnarine Chanderpaul used to play in the team during that time, Virat played cricket against him at the same time. Whereas in the year 2023, Virat is now ready to play against his son Teganarayana Chanderpaul. At the same time, Virat Kohli will create history for India and will also become the second player to do so.
Second cricketer to play against father-son duo
Significantly, before Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, who is called the God of cricket, has done this. In fact, he played against Australian player Geoff Marsh in the year 1992 and then also played cricket against his son Shaun Marsh in the year 2011-12. At the same time, Virat Kohli will become the second cricketer to play against father and son. However, for the two-match Test series, the West Indies have only announced the first Test squad and are yet to do so for the second. Because the Caribbean team was playing the qualifier round for the World Cup 2023, but the team could not qualify.
Tegnarayan has performed brilliantly in Tests
Tegnarayan Chanderpaul has done exceptionally well for the West Indies so far. He has so far scored 453 runs in 11 innings of 6 matches at an impressive average of 45.30. During this, he has also scored a double century, a century and a half-century. At the same time, his best score during this period is 207 runs. Now it remains to be seen whether Tegnarayan can perform brilliantly against India like his father.
