India vs West Indies: 1st T20I: Preview, Dream11 prediction

Hyderabad, December 5: India will face West Indies in the first Twenty20I at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here on Friday (December 6). West Indies are the reigning T20 World Champions but that will come hardly into picture against Virat Kohli and his band in their own backyard.

The Indians will be clear favourites to win the three-match T20I series and let's take a closer look.

1. Team news: India

1. Team news: India

The Indian team is on a roll recently trouncing South Africa and Bangladesh at home with consummate ease. Virat Kohli is back into the T20 fold after taking a break against the Bangladesh and he would like to stamp his authority here as India hit the road to the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia next year. Indian team management will also closely look how pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar performs in the series as he is returning from an injury.

They will also have an eye on Mohammed Shami, who made a return to the white ball format after a brief hiatus, and Kuldeep Yadav. The left-arm wrist spinner has an important series against Windies to underline his striking powers. Of course, Rishabh Pant too will be under the watch after recent string of failures.

The Windies certainly have the fire power to shock India even without Andre Russell and Sunil Narine. Skipper Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Lendl Simmons etc can put the Indian bowlers under pressure. And their bowling generally revolves around Jason Holder, Keemo Paul, Fabian Allen etc and can hold on their own. But they will require a massive collective effort to thwart India's charge.
