After beating England 2-1 in the T20 and ODI series, now India’s next challenge is from the Caribbean team. The ODI series between India and West Indies is scheduled to begin with a 3-match series starting July 22 and will end on July 27.
However, the Rohit Sharma-led T20 series will run from July 29 to August 7 next month. For your information, let us tell you that in February, in their last match with the West Indies team, India defeated them by winning both the ODI and T20 series by 3-0. But this time the Indian team will have to be careful, as the Caribbean players will try to take revenge for settling the score this time.
India has revealed its team XI for both the ODI and T20I series, while West Indies have only revealed their ODI team XI, keeping the T20I squad list anonymous. So, let us move on to understand the fixtures of all the games that happened with the XI of both the teams.

Pitch Report – The pitch of the Queen’s Park Oval looks fine for both bowlers and batters. However, it is only the spinners who are expected to enjoy the show, but when it comes to batting, playing carefully could lead any batting team to score more than 250 runs or so.
Weather Report – It looks highly unlikely for the cloud to shower tomorrow as the weather report suggests the precipitation limits not more than 20 percent, but yes, the rise in humidity (71 percent) might irritate some of the cricketers. Wind speeds are going to be moderate upto 19 kmph.

Match Prediction – After winning the T20I as well as the ODI series against England recently, the Indian team looks all beefed up but the meaning of the new series means, the counters start from Zero again.
