IND vs WI: India will start their home season with a 3-match ODI series followed by a 3-match T20I series against the West Indies. The ODI series will kick off from the 6th of February at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
All the three ODIs of this series will now be played in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium behind closed doors, and the T20Is will be played at the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata.
The Kieron Pollard-led side came into this series with a T20I series win over England 3-2 and they will be looking to continue their winning momentum against an unsettled Indian side. They are currently placed at 8th place on the ICC Men’s ODI rankings.
India, on the other hand, are coming off an embarrassing 3-0 series defeat against South Africa. Even ahead of this series, India suffered some massive blows as their four players – openers Shikhar Dhawan and Ruturaj Gaikwad, middle-order batter Shreyas Iyer and net bowler Navdeep Saini – all tested positive along with a few support staff.
Rohit Sharma will be making his captaincy debut with this series and must be looking to start it on a good note.
Talking about their head-to-head record, the two sides have faced each other 133 times in the ODIs, where India won 64 games while the West Indies have 63 victories.
