Cuttack: Nov 29, 2011


Virender Sehwag-led India will look to start the One-Day International series on a winning note in the first match against the West Indies at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack.

India are a dominant force in the 50-over format and the world champions would aim for no less than a 5-0 whitewash, which they had inflicted on a strong England side recently.

With Mahendra Singh Dhoni getting the much-needed rest ahead of the grueling tour of Australia, Virender Sehwag will lead the side and he will be seen in action in this format for the first time since the memorable World Cup win on April 2.

Having missed out on the One-day series in England because of hearing problem, Sehwag returned in the just-concluded Test series with his sparkling form intact even as a big score eluded him.

The 33-year-old Delhi player has led the side in seven matches, winning four of them, though he is yet to get a half-century as a captain with 44 as his best score.

Teams:

India: Parthiv Patel (wk), Virender Sehwag (c), Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, R Vinay Kumar, Varun Aaron, Umesh Yadav.

West Indies: Lendl Simmons, Adrian Barath, Danza Hyatt, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Andre Russell, Darren Sammy (c), Anthony Martin, Kemar Roach.
