The ODI series between India and West Indies is going to start shortly. India would like to win this series and win its 10th consecutive bilateral ODI against the West Indies. However, the Indian team will miss the fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar and opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan. Bhubaneswar is injured, while Dhawan has not yet recovered from the injury suffered during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy tournament.
If India wins in the one-day match to be held today, then for the first time it will go ahead in the win-loss equation against this team. Before this match, both teams have 62-62 wins in its account. Team India, however, had to face defeat in a match of the T20 series and the guest team proved that the match will not be one-sided. In the ODI series too, the effort of the visiting team will be to give a tough competition to India in its home.
In this match, Mayank Agarwal has been included in the team as an alternative to Dhawan, but whether he will be able to make a place in the playing XI is not clear yet. The Karnataka batsman was in excellent form in Test cricket and has joined the team after playing a Ranji Trophy match against Tamil Nadu in Dindigul. Shreyas Iyer has managed to take advantage of the opportunities and it is expected that he will be retained at No. 4.
