India`s 12-member team for the 1st T20I against Windies

Those who turned up at the ground were the team’s new arrivals the T20 specialists

Russell will have another fitness Test ahead of T10 tournament in the UAE that begins on November 21, following which the West Indies selectors are hopeful he can play on the tour of Bangladesh.

Keeping in mind the World T20 in 2020, India have picked three uncapped players (Krunal, S Nadeem and Khaleel) for this and the Australia series, aside from bringing back the likes of Shreyas Iyer and Washington Sundar to the squad.

West Indies have endured a hard tour, losing both Tests inside three days and then going down 3-1 in the subsequent one-day series.

Carlos Brathwaite has been tasked with the responsibility of helping West Indies finish the year on a high. Rohit Sharma will lead the Indian side in the absence of Virat Kohli, who has been rested for the series. Less than a week after two-time World Cup-winning skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was left out of India's T20I squad, captain Virat Kohli has said he remains an integral part of India's plans.

The 60-year-old billionaire died last Saturday with four others when his helicopter crashed next to Leicester's King Power Stadium.

The stats also favour the World T20 holders who have a five-two record from eight exchanges from 2009-17.

The Windies, who missed the big names in the Test and ODI series, will be bolstered by the arrival of star players Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell, who will be back at his IPL home venue. India will be looking at its current No. 2 ranking in the ICC list to fire itself up for the challenge. His absence gives Rishabh Pant a chance to prove his credentials.

The Eden centre strip promises to be full of runs, and batsmen from both sides will look to make merry.

The fact that the last time India beat them in 2014 would also be playing on their minds as they gear up for the three-match series opener in Kolkata on Sunday.

Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, K Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav.
