With the England series done and dusted, India will now shift focus to the upcoming West Indies tour, which is due to get underway in a few days’ time. The Men in Blue had a remarkable tour of England. Although they lost the Test match to finish the series 2-2, Rohit Sharma and Co. thrashed the hosts in T20Is and ODIs to finish the tour on a high.
As the action shift to the Caribbean, India have rested a few all-format players. Former captain Virat Kohli and ace fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah have been rested for the tour, while skipper Rohit Sharma, wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant and all-rounder Hardik Pandya will not feature in the ODI series.
India’s next match is against West Indies on July 22 at the Queen’s Park Oval. It is the first match of the three-match ODI series between the two teams. Shikhar Dhawan will lead the visitors, while all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja will be the vice-captain for the first time in his international career.
