Kohli - Windies will be better in Hyderabad
India captain Virat Kohli says his side are braced for a backlash when they face the West Indies in the second Test.
The hosts recorded their biggest-ever Test win in last week's opening match of the series, triumphing by an innings and 272 runs, and now head to Hyderabad.
With such a significant gulf in class between the teams in Rajkot, another victory is expected for the Indians - a result that would wrap up the Test campaign 2-0 ahead of the five-match one-day series and three Twenty20 encounters.
Kohli was one of three centurions in the first match but is expecting things to be tougher when the pair resume their rivalry on Friday, especially at a ground which traditionally lends itself to high-quality play.
He told reporters: "They are going to come hard at us in this game because it's only a two-match series and you don't have the room to do anything apart from making a comeback at this stage.
"It is always going to be a good cricket wicket in Hyderabad. The pitch doesn't wear and tear so much because of the weather here.
"There's a decent covering of grass on the pitch and the surface is always hard - if you bowl well you can take wickets and if you bat well you can score runs."
