The three-match T20I series between India and West Indies is all set to get underway today (February 16) at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Both sides will hope to begin this leg with a victory.
The spotlight will be on former captain Virat Kohli when India take the field. The talismanic run-scorer has been going through a rough patch with the bat and has received criticism. While Rohit Sharma has come out in public to back his best batsman, Kohli will be desperate to hit the right chords soon.
Meanwhile, India will miss the service of KL Rahul, Washington Sundar and Axar Patel due to injuries. Rishabh Pant has been named as Rohit’s deputy for the T20I series against West Indies.
On the other hand, West Indies will look to bounce back after the ODI debacle. They will be concerned about the fitness of their skipper Kieron Pollard. The experienced all-rounder missed the final two ODIs with a niggle and West Indies will hope that he can make a comeback to add some firepower in their batting unit.
