Number crunching: India vs West Indies head-to-head

Last updated on: November 05, 2013 15:22 IST

India captain MS Dhoni

India will be looking to better their head-to-head record when they take on the West Indies in the first of the two-Test series at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, starting on Wednesday.

Overall, the West Indies have won twice the number of matches than India, with 30 victories out of 88 games, with India winning just 14, and 44 ending in draws.

Their record in India is also quite good, having won a lot of matches in the last century. They boast of a better win record against India in their own backyard, with 14 victories as compared to India's nine in 43 games.

Amazingly, West Indies have lost just three Test series in India, starting from 1948-49. India won a close series 1-0 in 1978-79, while winning the last series against the men from the Caribbean, in 2002-03 and 2011-12.

Rajneesh Gupta presents a detailed statistical analysis involving  the two teams:
