West Indies are frustrated, and India is prepared to make things worse for them.
On Friday, West Indies and India will begin a three-game ODI series.
West Indies and India will start a three-game One-Day International series at Trinidad’s Queen’s Park Oval on Friday. The guests are the heavy favorites to overcome the struggling home squad. even in the absence of their key players. India decided to rest Rohit Sharma, their normal captain. Following their 2-1 series triumph in England, Virat Kohli, the primary batter, Rishabh Pant, all-arounder Hardik Pandya, and Jasprit Bumrah led the pace attack. The team, which was washed 3-0 by Bangladesh in Guyana the previous week, now has the possibility to suffer as a result of the absence of the stars and benefit from the talented and driven auxiliary players.
The Bangladeshis’ performance on the Providence pitch and the early start time. Nicholas Pooran, the captain of the West Indies, said that plans had been made to unfairly advantage the side bowling first.
So The two-time World Cup champions have a long history of consistently performing poorly in the 50 overs-per-side formats, which is ignored by that speculation.
Given the unpredictable weather in the days running up to the series opener. It is expected that the playing surface will be similar to the bowler-friendly conditions in Guyana.
Even with the best five electing to take a vacation, India has an embarrassment of riches. Not least in the bowling department where they have the skill and diversity to exploit the circumstances and a weak West Indies batting order.
Both pacer Mohammed Siraj and wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal are expected to lead the attack to put pressure on their competitors. Many of them were thought to have temperaments and technical abilities that were inappropriate for Bangladesh’s spin-heavy strategy.
The only encouraging development for the home squad in the days following the conclusion of the Bangladesh series is Jason Holder’s return.
After being rested for the series against the Netherlands, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, the all-rounder and previous captain will be counted on to serve as the team’s captain with both bat and ball.
Pooran, the team’s current captain, is under increasing pressure to help his team out of the slump they appear to be in following their 2-0 series triumphs in tests and T20 Internationals against Bangladesh.
A run of poor performances came to an end last Saturday at the Guyana National Stadium with his highest ODI score of 73.
So to come close to compiling totals that would actually pose a challenge to their rivals. It will require all of the West Indies’ resources, notably the opening hitter Shai Hope.
Due to India’s absence of a few notable players. The attention is expected to fall on players like all-rounder Deepak Hooda and batsmen Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, and Suryakumar Yadav.
With the following 50-over World Cup being hosted by India in 2023 and the upcoming T20 World Cup campaign just months away in Australia, there are many incentives to play well.
After the three ODIs at Queen’s Park Oval are finished. The teams will switch formats but stay in Trinidad for the opening T20 International at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba.
The final two games of the five-game series will be played at Florida’s Lauderhill, after which two more games will be played in St. Kitts.
