Following the 3-0 defeat in the T20I series, the West Indies are striving to make a successful start to the ODI series with three games, the first of which will be played Thursday, August 8, at Providence Stadium in Guiana.
1st ODI will take place at Providence Stadium, Guyana, West Indies
Thursday, 8 August, 9.30am local time, 1.30pm GMT.
West Indies were played in all three divisions of India in the T20Is. Competing against the runner-up on the MRF Tires ICC ODI standings, they are now faced with a difficult task and captain Jason Holder will expect more intensity from his team than was the case with England at home this year earlier this year. Chris Gayle, who had collected 424 runs in four innings at that time, could be a key player as he is 11 points ahead of the highest runscorer for West Indies in ODI cricket.
As for the men of Virat Kohli, the performances of the younger lot in T20Is will greatly benefit team leaders. While it will be interesting to see if either or both of Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey make it into the XI, Shikhar Dhawan, the seasoned opening bat, will see a great score in returning to the format after a thumb injury.
What Happened Last Time Between Both Teams
After a steady 72 by Virat Kohli, followed by a strong finish by MS Dhoni, the Indian bowlers ran through the West Indies to claim 143 and record a massive 125-man victory in the men’s ICC cricket, as these two teams won last time World Cup 2019 met.
“Too many instances in which we started as individuals, but never carried them deep into the innings, we have worked out an area, and after tackling this, we have become one even in it puts our very good position. “
“For us it has always been important to be one of the most consistent teams in world cricket, we have done that in the last three to four years, we are the No. 2 side in the world and there is a good reason for that. “
