India vs Windies, 1st T20I: Match preview and other details
This overseas tour will witness three T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests.
As India get set for a fight in an unknown territory, we present the match preview and other details regarding this tie.
Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey in focus for India
Talking about India's team, the focus would be on the return of youngsters Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey.
Pandey is a T20 specialist and has a healthy exposure of 28 T20Is for India.
Iyer, on the other hand, has relatively less experience. However, courtesy of his fine performance in the IPL 2019 with Delhi Capitals (DC), he is being touted to make an impact.
Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine to give Windies the edge
Pollard, who had a great title-winning campaign with Mumbai Indians (MI), would look to continue in the same vein.
Meanwhile, Narine would look to contribute with his mystery spin, and also with the bat, lower down the order.
