India will take on West Indies in the first ODI of the three-match series on Sunday, December 15 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The match will commence at 2:00 PM (IST).
The two teams will square off against each other after a fascinating T20 series which India won by a 2-1 margin. India are clear favourites going into the series but the hosts have been plagued with injuries. Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been ruled out of the series due to injuries.
On the other hand, West Indies have shown what they are capable of in the recently concluded T20 series. Kieron Pollard, the newly-appointed captain, has inspired West Indies who have put in a great performance. They are coming on the back of a 3-0 victory against Afghanistan and will give India a run for their money. However, Evin Lewis’ injury in the third T20I at the Wankhede played on Sunday will be a concern.
