Debutant Oshane Thomas and Carlos Brathwaite had rocked India, chasing 110 for their first T20 win against West Indies in four years, with some express stuff on a wicket that aided such bowling. Wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni will also not feature in the upcoming series.

The Indian team management on Saturday named the 12-member team for the opening Twenty20 global at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday.

After a stupendous ODI series win, Rohit Sharma will take over the Indian leadership role from Virat Kohli in the T20I series which will kick-start on Sunday at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Brathwaite will be back at the same venue where he hit four consecutive sixes off Ben Stokes to break the hearts of English fans by winning their second World Twenty20 title in 2016.

With Rovman Powell still new to global cricket, much then will rest on the shoulders of veterans Kieron Pollard and Denesh Ramdin, while captain Carlos Brathwaite's role will also be pivotal.

When and what time is the India vs West Indies? However, Virat maintained that it was Dhoni insisted that Rishabh Pant should get enough chances in the T20s.


Months earlier, the Windies had also overcome the Indians in Mumbai, in the semi-final of the T20 World Cup, and Brathwaite said he was hoping for similar results in the three-match series.

Match starts at 7 p.m.

Krunal Pandya is the only all-rounder in team that has 3 pacers - Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Khaleel Ahmed and two spinners in Kuldeep Yadav, and Yuzvendra Chahal. The contest will be competed at Eden Gardens, in Kolkata. The viewers will have to tune into Star Sports 1 and Star Sports Hindi channels to watch the live action on their TVs.

Having dominated West Indies in two formats - the Tests and ODIs - India is up against a perceived giant as the format shrinks to T20Is.

As Star Sports Network is the official broadcaster of India-West Indies T20 series 2018, it is evident that the live streaming service will be made available through its online platform, i.e. Hotstar.
