How will India win West Indies with Rohit Sharma’s Captaincy?

Rohit Sharma, India’s new full-time captain, will lead the team. After recuperating from a hamstring injury, he will make his comeback in the side. Due to his sister’s wedding, KL Rahul, who is the white-ball vice-captain, will miss the first ODI.

For those who don’t aware, COVID-19 has been detected in seven members of the Indian contingent, including four players. Shikhar Dhawan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, and Navdeep Saini are the four players. Ishan Kishan and Mayank Agarwal were recently added to the BCCI’s ODI team, with the former set to start the batting alongside Rohit Sharma in the opening ODI.

Kuldeep Yadav and Deepak Hooda are two major additions to the ODI team. Kuldeep Yadav hasn’t played competitive cricket in over a year. However, after India’s failure to take up wickets in the middle overs in South Africa, the management has resorted to him.

Deepak Hooda was also included on the list. Due to the absence of Shreyas Iyer for the opening ODI, Hooda might be inserted into the starting XI. Both Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami, two of India’s most experienced pacers, have been rested for the series. M Siraj, Deepak Chahal, and Prasidh Krishna would split the fast bowling duties in their absence.

The West Indies, on the other hand, are anticipated to put up a tough battle against India. They have a very capable team at their disposal. There would also be no shortage of confidence, given that they just won a T20 series against England at home.

The West Indies have a strong batting lineup. The batting line-depth up’s would enable them to play with an aggressive attitude. Shai Hope and Brandon King will continue to begin the batting order, while Nicholas Pooran, Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks, and others will bat in the middle. In the most recent ODI series against Ireland, the latter was outstanding with the bat.

It remains to be seen whether he can replicate such form against India. West Indies have a potent white-ball cricket team thanks to the presence of all-rounders like Kieron Pollard, Jason Holder, Odean Smith, and Romario Shepherd.

The West Indies’ inability to collect wickets early in the power play was one of the main reasons for their ODI series loss against Ireland. To address this issue, they’ve drafted Kemar Roach into the lineup.

In 2019, he last played an ODI for the West Indies against India. It’ll be intriguing to see if he can successfully return to the white-ball setup. Jason Holder, Odean Smith, and Romario Shepherd will split the fast bowling responsibilities with Roach.

Probable Score If India won the toss and choose to bat: 270 to 290

Probable score If West Indies won the toss and choose to bat: 230 to 250

This match’s most probably best batter: Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli relishes facing the West Indies. He has faced the ‘Men in Maroon’ 38 times in 38 innings. Kohli has a batting average of 72.10 and has scored over 2000 runs. Kohli has also compiled an astounding 9 hundreds one-day internationals against the West Indies.
