West Indies vs India, 1st ODI - Match Preview

Team India will look to take their winnning form from the T20 series into the 50-over format when they lock horns with West Indies in the first ODI of the three-match series at the Providence Stadium on Thursday.

The Indians would start as favourites against the Maroon Brigade after their stellar showing in the recently concluded T20 series where they clean swept the Windies.

India dominated the West Indies in the T20I series where they outclassed the opposition in all the three departments.

With Shikhar Dhawan back in the side, he will have the responsibility to give India a solid start alongside Rohit Sharma. K.L. Rahul, who opened the innings in World Cup alongside Rohit, is likely to go back to his number four slot with skipper Virat Kohli coming ahead of him.
