India v West Indies - 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup
The men in blue

After thumping the hosts 5-1 in the ODI series, India will look to carry their momentum forward, when they play the first of the three T20Is at Johannesburg on Sunday.

Interestingly, this will be the first time that the two teams will square off in a T20I on South African soil in almost six years.

The last game was in the rain-affected one-off game at the same venue, which South Africa won by 11 runs under the Duckworth-Lewis method.

7 of the players who featured in that game will not be a part of the XI tomorrow.

We look at those players here:

The Karnataka paceman was used as a first-change option in that game and did not have the most memorable outing with the ball, going for 32 runs in his three overs on an excellent batting surface.

Kumar had done reasonably well in the limited-overs leg of the tour to Australia, where he proved to be effective in the end overs, but on this day, he had no answers to the belligerence of the South African batting that day

He only played one T20I match for India after that game.
