1st ODI (D/N), West Indies tour of India 2018, WI v IND Cricket highlights today – first one day international from Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati (India) Sunday 21st October 2018. It will be the very first ODI match which will be played at Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati, Just one t20I had been played here between India and Australia. In that match, Australia won by 8 wickets (with 27 balls remaining). Total 121 times India and West Indies played cricket in 50 overs format. West Indies won 61, India 56, Tied 1 and No Result 3 times.
The winter is just around the corner in most of India, and that means dew. Guwahati should be no exception to that. A 1.30pm start should mean only the second half of the second innings should get affected. Neither of the regular West Indies openers is here, which leaves them a big challenge. Kieran Powell should take up one of those slots even though he played in the middle order in their last ODI. India has named Pant in an XII that includes six batsmen, Ravindra Jadeja as the allrounder and five other bowlers. In all likelihood, it will come down to choosing between Mohammed Shami and Khaleel Ahmed for the 11th place.
India won the toss and elected to field.
India team/playing XI
Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (capt), Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (wk), Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed, Yuzvendra Chahal.
