West Indies Vs India First ODI
Question in detail
West Indies Vs India first ODI: Both the teams have points to prove with expectations mounting high and opportunities falling low. While Windies couldn't even make it to the Champions Trophy earlier this bilateral ODI series, India has flown to WI at the back of a woeful facer against Pakistan in the CT final. Well, this is just a matter of time that the team, who was once everyone's favorite nearly a week ago, will now be seen fighting to recuperate their reputation. Not to surprise, this happens in the cricketing world.
There are apparently double thoughts about how India will fare in the five-match ODI series and the lone T20 against West Indies. While some people will be questioning India's true potential, the others are still hopeful of India's massive success on this West Indies tour. The hypothesis, which assesses team India slightly less capable of leaving a statement on this Caribbean tour, has been built up around India's nightmarish finish to their CT campaign.
Despite the woes to their deplorable ending to the Champions Trophy, India are favorites in West Indies Vs India first ODI. West Indies will be challenging team India with only two centurions in their squad. And that will worry them a little. India, on the other hand, will certainly miss two of their key players: Yorker specialist Jaspreet Bumrah and opener Rohit Sharma. Rishabh Pant and Kuldeep Yadav will be seen making their ODI debut if given a chance in the playing XI. Windies squad for the first two ODIs would remain the same as it was against Afganistan in the two-match ODI series.
For the first two ODI, the hosts have named an unchanged squad that played against Afganistan in June. WI's premier pacer Shannon Gabriel will miss the series due to a side strain, which he suffered during the second ODI against Afganistan. Miguel Cummins has joined the squad as Gabriel's replacement. Windies squad for the first two ODIs is as: Jason Holder (C), Jonathan Carter, Roston Chase, Devendra Bishoo, Miguel Cummins, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope (wk), Jason Mohammad, Kieran Powell, Rovman Powell, Ashley Nurse, Kesrick Williams.
