The Kolkata Knight Riders star, a crowd favourite at the Eden Gardens, has been ruled out of the entire series with an injury.

INDIA - Rohit Sharma (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem.

Winning Super50 Cup Captain, Carlos Brathwaite will turn his attention to the Windies as he heads a 14-man squad for three T20Is against India, starting tomorrow, November 4. Hosts India have been dominating them since the start of the series in October.

"Some of them had a taste in the ODI format and I personally think we did a lot better than a lot of people expected in the ODI format, and it's for us to come in the T20 format now and create an even bigger surprise and come away with the trophy at the end of the series".




Full details of when, where and how you can watch and follow the 1st T20I between India and West Indies live. He would look to carry his fine form from the ODI series, in which he finished behind Kohli, with 389 runs, at a staggering average of 129.66. The 31-year old has a world record score of 264 in ODIs here in 2014, a Test ton (177) and two IPL titles won on this ground. The stats also favour the World T20 holders who have a five-two record from eight exchanges from 2009-17.

When and what time is the India vs West Indies? Mystery spinner Sunil Narine is also absent.

West Indies will enter their final leg of India tour when they face India in the first T20I of a three-match series in Kolkata today.

The Windies are a different team when it comes to T20s, with the likes of Keiron Pollard, Andre Russell, skipper Carlos Brathwaite, Dareen Bravo and latest sensation Shimron Hetmyer in their ranks. The Windies have won only twice - the victory against ICC World XI included - in 2018, losing two games to Bangladesh in their last couple of encounters. "The team retains some experienced players who will work alongside the younger group which is very important for their development".
