The Indian cricket team will aim to continue their unbeaten bilateral series record against West Indies when they take on the team from the Caribbean in a three-match T20I series, starting Wednesday, February 16.
The Men in Blue haven’t lost a bilateral series against West Indies since 2006, with their 3-0 ODI series win being the recent hammering.
The home team is set to miss the services of vice-captain KL Rahul and spinner Axar Patel in the T20I series, with the former suffering from an upper left hamstring strain while the latter is in the final stage of his rehabilitation after recently recovering from Covid-19. In turn, the team management has named Ruturaj Gaikwad and Deepak Hooda as replacements.
West Indies, on their part, will continue to be without Chris Gayle, with Kieron Pollard leading the team as captain.
Meanwhile, all three matches are set to be played in Kolkata’s iconic Eden Gardens, with reports claiming that a certain percentage of fans are set to be allowed inside the stadium. India have made several changes to the team that took the field in the ODI series, with Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar all making it to the team.
