It was 2011 when India last played a
in Dominica. At that time, playing under MS Dhoni’s captaincy were two players who will be there in Dominica again, but in “different capacities”, when India take on the hosts West Indies in the first Test of the series, starting July 12.
Virat Kohli and current coach Rahul Dravid were teammates back in 2011, and the two are enjoying a Dominica reunion, while Kohli is still a player and Dravid is India’s head coach.
Sharing a moment from that reunion, Kohli tweeted an image with Dravid, and the caption read: “The only two guys part of the last Test we played at Dominica in 2011. Never imagined the journey would bring us back here in different capacities. Highly grateful.”
The match in 2011 ended in a draw. Set to chase 180 in 32 overs on the last day, India finished at 94/3.
Kohli is the only player from the Test squad of 2011 to be on the current tour of the Caribbean as a player.
India are scheduled to play two Tests, three ODIs and five T20Is on the tour.
