IND vs WI 1st ODI: India and West Indies will lock horns in the first of the three-match ODI series on Friday at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad. India is playing with a second-string side as senior players such as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah aren’t in the side.

Shikhar Dhawan has been assigned the duty to lead the side, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the vice-captain. Dhawan is likely to open the innings with either Ishan Kishan or Shubman Gill.

The middle order will have the likes of Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer, and Sanju Samson to name a few. It will be interesting to see who all makes into the playing XI  

With the ball, Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the fast bowling department. The likes of Avesh Khan and Mohammed Siraj will comprise the pace department. While Yuzvendra Chahal will most likely lead the spin department.

West Indies don’t boast of a great record in ODIs. They lost their last ODI series by a 3-0 margin against Bangladesh. Nicholas Pooran and Co. should look to exhibit a bit more application with both bat and ball in the upcoming series.

They have got plenty of talent in the batting department. The presence of Shamarh Brooks, Rovman Powell, Nicholas Pooran, and Kyle Mayers should keep the team in good stead.

Also, they have got someone like Jason Holder and Keemo Paul, both of whom will be there to add balance to the line-up. In the fast department, the onus of picking wickets will be on the shoulders of Jayden Seales and Alzarri Joseph, while Akeal Hosein will lead the spin bowling department.
