Bangalore: With a comfortable 1-0 lead, a confident India would be taking on West Indies from 17th October 2002 at Chennai (Madras) in the second of the three Test series. A lack lustre performance by the visitors in the opening Test at Mumbai cost them an innings and 112 runs defeat. India's performance at Chennai has pleasant memories in that it has 12 wins as against 10 defeats plus an unforgettable tied Test against the Australians. Against West Indies it has lost twice and won on 3 occasions out of 7 matches. Harbhajan Singh who tormented the West Indians at Mumbai by taking 7/48 in the second innings might be itching his fingers to bowl at this venue as he had a similar scintillating bowling performance against the Australians by taking 7/133 and 8/84 in 2000/01.
