India tour of West Indies, 2022

WI vs IND,1st ODI


After weeks of hype and anticipation India’s tour of the West Indies is finally about to commence. The first of the three one dayers will be played on Friday, July 22 at the Queen’s Park Oval. The visitors will be riding high on confidence coming fresh from an emphatic ODI series win over England. India off late have been quite successful in white ball cricket and will be eager to continue their dream run.West Indies on the contrary have had a woeful run over the last couple of weeks. They were bruised, battered and comprehensively beaten by Bangladesh in the recently concluded ODI series. Caribbeans are still recovering from the humiliation they suffered against the Tigers and now will face an in-form India. Will the hosts be able to change their fortunes or will further be mortified by the men in blue? We guess only time will tell. 

Led by Shikhar Dhawan, team India will be aiming to start the series with a resounding win. The visitors are without the services of Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami who have been rested for the ODI leg. While others will join the T20I squad, ace batter Virat Kohli and the pace bowling duo of Mohammad Shami and Jaspreet Bumrah will remain to be out of action. Despite the absence of their regulars, the visitors still have quite a few talented players in their squad. 

They are high on batting firepower with the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan and Shubhman Gill in their ranks. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur and Yuzvendra Chahal will be the bowlers to keep an eye on. 

West Indies had a torrid past few weeks or so. They were outsmarted by Bangladesh in all three fronts. The Pooran era which began on a commanding note with back to back victories in tests and T20Is seem to lose its spark during the ODI leg. Batting, which is supposedly West Indies’ strong suit, became the very reason behind their dismal show. With a new chapter in their sights, the hosts will be keen to return back to winning ways. With the likes of Shai Hope, Shamarah Brooks and Nicolas Pooran in their batting lineup, Windies will look to make the most of it. Alzarri Joseph, Jayden Seales and Akeal Hossain will hold the key in the bowling attack.
