Ind vs WI Live:  When India takes the field on Sunday, it will become the first international team to play 1000 ODIs. Currently, at 999 matches, India accounts for 518 wins and 431 losses.

On Thursday, the BCCI had confirmed that Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan and Ruturaj Gaikwad tested positive for COVID-19 and hence will miss the ODI series. Mayank was drafted into the squad and he could be seen opening the batting alongside Rohit Sharma.

Kuldeep is also back in the squad and it would be interesting to see whether the team management gives him a chance alongside Yuzvendra Chahal in the playing XI. Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna and Avesh Khan are also in the squad and it would be nice to see these three being given games consistently.

Batting against South Africa left a lot to be desired and it would be nice to see a different approach against West Indies and one would expect the batters play their natural game. Virat Kohli has not scored a century since November 2019 and the entire country is waiting for the right-handed batter get to the three-figure mark as soon as possible.
Talking about West Indies, the side from the Caribbean is fresh from the T20I series win against England and it would be interesting to see how Kieron Pollard leads the side against the Men in Blue.
