India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

With Shardul Thakur ruled out through injury once again, after only managing to bowl ten balls on his test debut against the West Indies, he has been replaced in the squad by in-form Umesh Yadav. Umesh’s career-best match figures in the second test put him in the frame for the ODIs too, but he has so far failed to hold down a regular spot in the one-day team.

Blessed with so much one-day talent, the India team for the ODIs has a very different look to the test squad, with the likes of Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu all coming into the team. Rishabh Pant is expected to make his ODI debut, meanwhile, having been called up to the squad in place of Dinesh Karthik. Dhoni will be behind the stumps, however. Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have both been rested.

IND Key Players

Rohit Sharma, ranked number two in the world, was in brilliant form during the Asia Cup, having also hit an unbeaten century in India’s sole ODI win during their series in England. He hit scores of 23, 52, 83*, 111* and 48 in his five matches in the Asia Cup as India lifted the trophy.

Team-mate Virat Kohli, who sat out the Asia Cup, remains the number-one ODI batsman in the world, however. Kohli hit two ODI scores of 70+ in the tour of England as he continued to prove his consistency, having previously hit a stunning three centuries in six matches during the series with South Africa. Kohli hit 558 runs in total, at a strike rate of 99.46, and finished the series with an average of 186.

Shikhar Dhawan was the top scorer in the Asia Cup, meanwhile – he hit two centuries in five matches and now has 480 runs in his last nine matches at better than a run a ball.

India’s bowlers have also excelled of late. Kuldeep Yadav was one of three bowlers to claim ten wickets at the Asia Cup, with his mystery spin, while Ravindra Jadeja claimed seven. Kuldeep also took 16 wickets in the dominant series win in South Africa and claimed nine in the series in England, including a match-winning 6-25 in the first game.

IND Team Form

India bounced back from their series defeat in England – ending a run of nine bilateral ODI series victories across the previous three years – by winning the Asia Cup last time out.

They headed to England on the back of a dominant 5-1 series win in South Africa, where Virat Kohli hit three centuries and the bowlers regularly ripped through South Africa’s batting line-up. And, when Kuldeep Yadav hit 6-25 and Rohit Sharma smashed an unbeaten century in the first ODI in England, things looked good. England hit back to win the next two matches and claim a 2-1 series win but India came back strong.

In the UAE, they beat Hong Kong thanks to Shikhar Dhawan’s century and Pakistan courtesy of some excellent bowling led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3-15) to top their first Group. Then, in the Super Fours, they beat Bangladesh by seven wickets and Pakistan by nine – Dhawan hittinganother century – before a thrilling tie with Afghanistan in the final match to book their place in the final. There, they faced Bangladesh again and Kuldeep Yadav took 3/45 to restrict them to 222, before Kedar Jadhav scored a leg bye off the final ball to claim a three-wicket win.

West Indies Team News & Playing 11

WI Team News

Big-hitting opener Evin Lewis has withdrawn from the ODI squad for personal reasons, to be replaced by Kieran Powell, as the West Indies lose another of their big names. Chris Gayle had already ruled himself out of contention, while Andre Russell is injured. Alzarri Joseph remains out through injury, with Obed McCoy – who impressed in the Caribbean Premier League – called up as cover.

Coach Stuart Law has been banned for two matches for comments made to the umpires in the wake of the second test defeat to India.

WI Key Players

Jason Holder was one of few positives in the test series for the West Indies, and the test and ODI captain will hope to carry his form into the shorter format. Holder hit a half-century and claimed a five-wicket haul in the second test. In the West Indies’ most recent ODI series – the home defeat to Bangladesh – Holder claimed four wickets in three matches, as did team-mate Devendra Bishoo.

With the bat, Shimron Hetmyer top-scored in that ODI series with one century, one 50 and 207 runs in total across the three games. He has scored 448 runs in his last ten ODIs and was also in great batting form during the Caribbean Premier League – almost single-handedly leading the Guyana Amazon Warriors to the final.

Shai Hope has scored 328 runs in his last ten matches, meanwhile, at an average of 41.

WI Team Form

West Indies lost their most recent bilateral series to Bangladesh. In the first match at Providence they fell to a 48-run defeat as they fell well short in a chase of 279/4, but hit back in the second game as Shimron Hetmyer scored 125 from 93 balls. The West Indies posted 271 all out, and held on to win by three runs thanks to a superb final over from Jason Holder. That set up a decider at Basseterre, but half-centuries from Chris Gayle, Shai Hope and Rovman Powell could not help them chase down the 302 required to win.Previously, West Indies had booked their place at the 2019 Cricket World Cup with success in the World Cup qualifier in Zimbabwe, but they finished the tournament with defeat to fellow qualifiers Afghanistan – the second time they had lost against them in the tournament – after being bowled out for just 204 in the final.
