All-Rounder Andre Russell Ruled Out Of India vs Windies T20I Series

What TV channel and live stream is the 1st T20I between India and West Indies Live Streaming on?

A weakened but still risky West Indies will clash with powerhouses India in the opening Twenty20 global here Sunday, hoping to spring a surprise and also halt their decline in what has become their most successful format.

The fact that the last time India beat them in 2014 would also be playing on their minds as they gear up for the three-match series opener in Kolkata on Sunday.

Revised Windies squad: Carlos Brathwaite (Captain), Fabian Allen, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Keemo Paul, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Shai Hope, Sherfane Rutherford, Oshane Thomas, Khary Pierre, Obed McCoy, Rovman Powell, Nicholas Pooran.

Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, K Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav.

Winning Super50 Cup Captain, Carlos Brathwaite will turn his attention to the Windies as he heads a 14-man squad for three T20Is against India, starting tomorrow, November 4. He also scored 140 in India's series-opening eight-wicket victory.

Kohli was in a brilliant form during the recently concluded ODI series and with 453 runs in five matches, he was unarguably the best choice to claim the Man of the Series award.

Pant is expected to fulfil the wicket-keeping responsibilities while Karthik could take on one of the positions in the outfield.

As per the latest ICC rankings, India, however, are way ahead of the Windies.

The Eden centre strip promises to be full of runs, and batsmen from both sides will look to make merry.

India's handed debuts to left-arm spin-bowling allrounder Krunal Pandya and left-arm quick Khaleel Ahmed in their first-ever T20I at home without MS Dhoni.

The highly-anticipated match will be played on November 4, Sunday, and it will start at 7 pm India time.
