Following the conclusion of the two-Test series, team India and West Indies are all set to engage in a three-match ODI series. The matches will prove to be a vital one, especially for the Men in Blue, considering that they will be playing the Asia Cup and the ODI World Cup in October.

Keeping the upcoming mega 50-over event in mind, Team India will look to fine-tune their combinations so as to find a core setup. On the other hand, the Windies play their first ODI match after a dismal campaign in the ODI World Cup Qualifiers in Zimbabwe. 

While the Windies will need to pay attention to their white-ball cricket to get back into the game, India on the other hand will look to keep themselves charged up for the aforementioned events with wins in the three-match series.

The two sides will lock horns for the first ODI at the Kensington Oval, in Barbados, on Thursday, July 26. A crucial series awaits as team India will look to keep their momentum intact heading to the first ODI.

Pitch and conditions 

The wicket at the Kensington Oval has something in it for both the pacers and spinners alike. Therefore, the match is likely to be a competitive one and either skipper winning the toss may elect to field first.
