Today, the first ODI match between India and West Indies will be played in Port of Spain
In Cricket, the FIRST ODI of three-match series between India and the West Indies will be played today at Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain. The match will start at 7 PM Indian time.
In the absence of regular captain Rohit Sharma, opener Shikhar Dhawan will lead the team. Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohammad Shami have also been rested for the series.
Against a shaky West Indies batting line-up, India have a variety of options to choose from in their bowling attack. Dhawan’s deputy, Ravindrandra Jadeja is likely to team up with leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal in the spin department.
While Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur will lead the pace attack. For the West Indies, the return of all-rounder Jason Holder is a big boost after being rested from white-ball matches against the Netherlands, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.
