India vs West Indies 1st ODI Highlights June 23, 2017

Ind v WI highlights today first odi – from Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad (West Indies) Friday 23rd June 2017. India played very good in champion’s trophy 2017, they lost only two matches first against Sri Lanka and second against Pakistan in the final. It was just looking lack of confidence in Indian cricket team in their last match otherwise their overall team performance was very good. S Dhawan was the most runs scorer of the tournament. Other side West Indies recently played three odi match series against Afghanistan.

In the first match Afghanistan won by 63 runs target was 213. In second odi West Indies won by 4 wickets (with 64 balls remaining) target was 136. Sometimes West Indies slow tracks can be difficult for any team. As we know India can bat against spinners very good but West Indies is much struggling with same kind of bowling in these days. According to West Indies last odi series performance 250 runs target is much difficult but it could be very easy for them because they can chase any target according to their old odi format records.

Match Timings: 09:00 local time (13:00 GMT)

In the three T20s played between West Indies and Pakistan at the Queen’s Park Oval – the venue for the first two ODIs – earlier this year, the highest score was 138 for 3 in a successful chase. Run-making is unlikely to get any easier, which could mean both teams’ batsmen face a trial of slow bowling. There is no rain forecast. Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah are the two exclusions from India’s squad from the Champions Trophy. Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant and left-arm wristspinner Kuldeep Yadav were picked in their place, but they may not make the XI initially. Ajinkya Rahane is likely to take Rohit’s opening spot, and Umesh Yadav could be brought in for Bumrah. With Shannon Gabriel unavailable due to injury, West Indies named an unchanged 13-man squad for the first two ODIs. Fast bowler Kesrick Williams and legspinner Devendra Bishoo may miss out.
