1. Team News - India
India will be on a confident mood after crushing West Indies in the T20I series decider at Mumbai. India's top three batsmen Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli fired in unison as they posted a massive 240 and then the bowlers came up with a clinical show to earn a 67-run win. The form KL Rahul showed in the T20Is will allow the team management to breath easy as at least for the next couple of series they do not need to find answers for the opener riddle. The Chennai pitch is often slow and low as we have seen in the IPL and we may just see an attack oriented more towards spin.
