The start of Rashid Khan’s captaincy tenure has been impressive, in his first-ever fixture as captain, he led Afghanistan to a historic Test win against Bangladesh.

Kieron Pollard will lead a new-look West Indies side which features CPL’s top scorer Brandon King and leading wicket-taker Hayden Walsh. The Caribbean side themselves had a disappointing World-Cup campaign, finishing second-last in the group. West Indies also lost every competed game against India during their recent series across all three formats.
