Having clinched the three-match Twenty20 international series 3-0, India will look to continue their winning momentum as they take on West Indies in the first ODI at Providence Stadium in Guyana on Thursday.

This will be India s first ODI after the defeat against New Zealand in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and the Virat Kohli-led side will be keen to make a winning return to the 50-overs cricket.

While Shikhar Dhawan is ready to join Rohit Sharma at the top of the innings, KL Rahul will be slotted in the middle order. Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav meanwhile contest for two spots in the middle-order.
