India vs West Indies  ODI begins today.

Kohli and his boys gear up for first ODI against West Indies today.  A big win will put at rest all the unnecessary attention pinned on him after coach Anil Kumble`s controversial exit.It will also be a match when Kohli will have complete freedom in team selection. Batting coach Sanjay Bangar is not the assertive kind.  Kohli knows well that with the BCCI top brass backing him and going with a better team his performance will be under  close scrutiny.

From the Champion`s Trophy team  Jasprit Bumrah and Rohit Sharma have been rested, while Rishabh Pant and Kuldeep Yadav have been included.

Indian spinners are expected to do better on the Caribbean pitches.  Ashwin and Jadeja should be starters but Kuldeep`s  inclusion cannot be ruled out.

The hosts , Windies, have named a 13 man squad for the first 2 ODIs without Shannon Gabriel who is injured. They should go into play with the same side that played the third ODI against Afghanistan with Devendra Bishoo and Kescrick William on the bench.
