West Indies and India are set to cross swords with each other in the first game of the three-match ODI series on Friday, July 22. The Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad, is set to host the encounter.

India will be captained by Shikhar Dhawan after a number of star performers, including Jasprit Bumrah, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya were rested. Umran Malik, meanwhile, hasn't been picked for the series.

Dhawan previously captained India on the tour of Sri Lanka and will be looking to bring forth all his experience into play. Arshdeep Singh was unable to play in the ODI series due to an injury that he sustained during the T20I series. He will be looking to play a few games.

West Indies, led by Nicolas Pooran, on the other hand, aren't in the best of form by any means. The Caribbean team recently lost 0-3 to Tamim Iqbal's Bangladesh. In all three matches, they struggled to play spinners Mehidy Hasan, Nasum Ahmed and Taijul Islam.

Hence, it won't be a surprise if the Men in Blue include both Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel in their playing XI. The hosts will need to pull up their socks, especially in their batting department if they wish to get off to a winning start.

West Indies vs India Pitch Report

The pitch at the Queen's Park Oval has been a tad on the slower side of late. Spinners are most likely to come into play. An overly high-scoring match doesn't seem to be on the cards.

Winning the toss and fielding first should be the way forward.

There is a 40 percent chance of rain throughout the duration of the match. The temperature will be around the 32-degree Celeius mark with humidity in the mid-20s.
