If MS Dhoni-led Indian team beat the West Indies team under Darren Sammy in the first Test in Kingston, following milestones will be achieved:

# The first instance of an Indian win in the first Test of a series against West Indies in the Caribbean.

# It would be the first instance of two successive wins for India in the Caribbean. They had won the previous Test in the West Indies by 49 runs -  at Kingston in 2006.

# Mahendra Singh Dhoni, with 15 wins out of 25, would be overtaking Mohammad Azharuddin's tally of 14 wins out of 47.

# Dhoni's tally of 15 wins would be the second by an Indian captain, next only to Sourav Ganguly - 21 in 49.

# West Indies, in case of a defeat, would be registering their 50th loss in the Caribbean. Their present record reads - Played: 213, Won: 76, Lost: 49 and Drawn: 88 - winning % 35.68. (Also Read: Indians suffer without DRS in opening Test)
