Team India swept away the T20I series 3-0 before the start of the ODI series. The visitors were as clinical as it gets in all 3 games. They didn’t give even a sniff to the hosts in any of the matches. T20I was the format in which West Indies had a chance of winning as they are the World Champions of that format. But that’s gone now and the challenge is going to get even tougher as India is ranked No.2 in the world in ODI cricket.
With the change in the format, both sides will have a few changes in the squad. The likes of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav return for India while West Indies will get back the services of Chris Gayle who has opted to continue playing after announcing retirement prior to the World Cup. The venue remains the same as the visitors get set for a fresh start after the heartbreak in the World Cup semi-final.
