Rishabh Pant – Pant failed in first two T20 matches but his heroics with the bat in the third T20 was applauded by all. His unbeaten knock of 65 off 42 deliveries helped India to snatch a victory against West Indies in the match. He has gained his form and he can come up with a great show in the ODI series as well.

Sheldon Cottrell- Cottrell is the most successful West Indies bowler in India’s tour of West Indies so far. His has dismissed some crucial Indian batsmen like Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan during the T20 series and he is one bowler who can prove fatal for the Indian team.
