The Indian team is currently in the West Indies for three ODIs and five T20Is. The ODI team is led by Shikhar Dhawan, in absence of Rohit, Pant, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya and Mohammed Shami among others.

Rohit, Pant, Bumrah and Pant will return for the T20I leg, while questions remain over KL Rahul’s availability, who was recently tested positive for covid-19.

The visitors are leading the former by 2-0 with back-to-back thrilling wins in the first two games at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad. While Dhawan, Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer set up a match-winning score in the series opener to set up a two-run win, Iyer and Sanju Samson scored crucial fifties in the second, before Axar Patel scored an unbeaten 64 off 35 to help India gun down a 312-run target with two wickets and as many balls to spare.

The third and final ODI will be played on Wednesday, July 27, at the same venue, before the T20I series gets underway on Friday, July 29 at the Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad.
