After winning the T20 series 2–1 against the West Indies, the Indian cricket team has reached Chennai for first test. Kohli and team now have to play a three-match ODI series against the West Indies, whose first match will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday. The next two matches of the series will be played on December 18 in Visakhapatnam and on December 22 in Cuttack.
A win in the T20 series would have boosted the morale of the Indian team. Apart from this, the Indian team played their last ODI series against West Indies in August this year. The three-match series was won by India 2–0. However, Team India suffered a 2-3 defeat to Australia in their last home series. In such a situation, Team India will once again come home with the intention of continuing the winning streak.
As far as the Indian team is concerned, the ODI team will include Mayank Agarwal, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, who were not part of the T20 team. At the same time, Sanju Samson, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Washington Sundar, who were included in the T20 team, are not part of the one-day team.
At the same time, the West Indies team will be headed by Kieron Pollard, who was also the captain of the T20 team. The West Indies played their last series in India last month against Afghanistan in which they won 3–0. However, there is a lot of difference between playing against Afghanistan and playing against India in their home country, this thing is well known by the Caribbean team. The West Indies ODI squad will feature Sunil Ambrish, Shai Hope, Roston Chase, Aljari Joseph and Romario Shepherd, who were not part of the T20 squad. At the same time, Fabian Allen, Dinesh Ramdin, Sherfen Rutherford, Landil Simmons, Kesrick Williams, who were part of the T20 team, are not in the ODI team.
