India bowl first; Pant, Thomas and Hemraj make debuts

Toss India chose to play at the plate v West Indies



The lack of batters from India who can play bowl has meant that Virat Kohli has no choice but to choose Ravindra Jadeja in the first ODI against the West Indies

India inserted the West Indies in what they expected to be a good batting track that should not deteriorate during the first ODI of the five-match series , in Guwahati. It surprised the television experts who had seen the field: they expected the surface to slow down and they also expected the dew to stay away until 8 pm, which is near the end of the game.

To win the draw and the limited bowl, cricket is becoming the equivalent of batting first in the tests, so perhaps this decision was not so surprising. However, there was a surprise in the bowling attack: India chose to enter with only one doll, leaving out the left goalkeeper Kuldeep Yadav. Your choice to play three fast is indicative of your evaluation of the field.

There was a debutant for India, Rishabh Pant, as announced before the game, and two for the West Indies. Starting pitcher Chandrapaul Hemraj and fast bowler Oshane Thomas got the nod ahead of Sunil Ambris and Keemo Paul.
