Windies could well start as favourites against India in the T20I series given the experienced players in their squad compared to what they fielded in Tests and ODIs. India, on the other hand, has rested their regular captain Virat Kohli for yet another T20I series in Asia. The hosts will also have quite a few new faces and are expected to make their long-awaited debut for India. The three-match T20I series will start on 4th of November at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
