India tour of West Indies: Team India resorts to indoor nets due to rain in Trinidad ahead of first ODI

The Indian team resorted to indoor nets on Wednesday after rain washed out the scheduled practice session in Trinidad ahead of the first ODI against West Indies. “Gearing up for ODI No.1 against the West Indies. Here’s @ShubmanGill giving a lowdown on #TeamIndia’s first net session in Trinidad,” BCCI posted a video of the indoor net session.

Shikhar Dhawan will lead Team India in the three-match ODI series in West Indies which starts on Friday (July 22). He has been named captain as regular skipper Rohit Sharma, alongside Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, and Jasprit Bumrah have been rested for the 50-over series.

With so many big names absent for India, the likes of batsmen Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill and Suryakumar Yadav, together with all-rounder Deepak Hooda are expected to come to the fore. With another T20 World Cup campaign mere months away in Australia followed by India’s hosting of the next 50-over World Cup in 2023, incentives to deliver are aplenty.

All three matches of the series will be played at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain. The three matches will be played between July 22 to 27 at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad. After the three-match ODI series, India and West Indies will play five T20Is between July 29 and August 7. Rohit, Pant and Pandya will return to the Indian side for the shortest format series, while Kohli, Bumrah and Shami will miss the T20Is as well.

India squad for 3 ODIs against West Indies: Shikhar Dhawan (captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan (wk), Sanju Samson (wk), Ravindra Jadeja (vice-captain), Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj, Arshdeep Singh.
