Summary

After thrashing West Indies in the Test series, India will look to defeat them in the ODI series starting with the first match on October 21. However, the ODI side of the Windies boasts with experienced players such as Evin Lewis, Kieron Pollard and Marlon Samuels. The bowling attack is led by captain Jason Holder and Kemar Roach and will look to trouble famed Indian batting lineup.

 

As for India, captain Virat Kohli would be keen continue his stellar form as he returns to lead the side after being rested for the Asia Cup. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan enjoyed a stellar run in the Asia Cup and India won't mind more of the same from their openers. Ambati Rayudu, Manish Pandey, and Rishabh Pant are the candidates likely to be given a run for the no.4 spot in this series.

 

India are without first-choice fast-bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah for this series but Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed, and Umesh Yadav have ample opportunities to stake a claim in the side.

 

India vs West Indies 1st ODI will be played on October 21 at Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati. The match will start at 1:30 PM IST. We have the full squads of both the teams here.

 

India full squad: Virat Kohli [c], Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Ambati Rayudu, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav.
