India Vs West Indies, 2nd Test: Key Numbers Ahead Of Hyderabad Match

The last time India lost to Windies at home was way back in 1994 – a 243-run defeat at Mohali.


India-West Indies Test series have become of the most lop-sided encounters in the last one decade or so, with Men in Blue dominating the once formidable Windies. India's win by an innings and 272 runs inside three days at Rajkot was just another chapter in this narrative. The second match at Hyderabad is also expected to be a one-sided affair.

Here are key stats and numbers ahead of the second Test:

Venue:

India are undefeated at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium. The first match against New Zealand ended in a draw, but the hosts have registered massive wins in the next three matches.

In 2012, India thrashed the Kiwis by an innings and 115 runs. The following year, Australia succumbed to an innings and 135-run defeat. Last year, India humbled Bangladesh by 208 runs in the one-off Test.

Head-To-Head

This will be the 96th meeting between the two sides, with the Windies still leading the head-to-head record 30 to 19, while 46 matches ended in draws.

But the last time India lost to the Windies was in the last decade, in 2002 at Sabina Park, by 155 runs. Since then, India have won 11 matches in 20 meetings.

In 46 matches in India, Windies have won 14 times, while India managed 12. 20 Tests were drawn matches. But the last time India lost to Windies at home was way back in 1994 – a 243-run defeat at Mohali.
