After disappointing finale of champion trophy India starts their west indies series of 5 ODIs and 1 T-20 today.
India looks pretty solid on the paper though they gave in form Rohit Sharma and Bumrah rest. This may be last chance for Rahane to stand out as his recent ODI scores are not so good and he missed the champion trophy due to Rohit Sharma’s comeback after Injury.
Kuldeep Yadav and Rishabh Pant got selected for the series. Kuldeep yadav will probably get selected in the team, while R Pant Selection will depends on the performance of team if team win the first three matches then will get the chance in last 2 matches.
On the Other hand West Indies looks poor, the main player’s of the WI are not in the team doe to clashes with board so they have to play without Gayle, Bravo, Polard, Sammy, Simmons, Smith, Narine, Badree. This really inexperience team.
The overall West Indies team played 213 ODIs while MSD played 291 and Yuvi 301.
West indies does not even qualified for the champion trophy, in that champion trophy period they played against Afghanistan( which recently got full time member’s status from ICC) and draw 1-1.
So over all India looks this test series as practice for upcoming matches, while West Indies trying to look at it as a Learning experience.(i.e. series will be boring and their will be other things to watch like Wimbledon or F1 or England VS South Africa for cricket fan)
SERIES PREVIEW: India will win the series by 5-0 margin
