IND vs WI: Match Preview:

The Indian team led by captain Rohit Sharma is prepared to face the Caribbean nation in the upcoming T20I series, which will begin on July 29, following a convincing victory over the West Indies in the three-match ODI series.

Shikhar Dhawan's ODI team in the three-match series, which ended last night, India completely destroyed West Indies. Men-In-Blues scripted history after winning three straight games and white-washing the home side for the first time in history.

In the series, Indian batting looked aggressive and scored runs with positive intent. Shubman Gill, who got awarded with Player of the series award after making 205 runs in three matches. Apart from Gill, Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer were the other batters who topped the chart in leading run scorers list. Indias bowling will be a topic of concern for Rohit Sharma as in the starting two ODIs the bowling department went expensive.

On the other hand, home side West Indies did amaze with the bat till the last match, where their batting collapsed quickly. Only batters who will be satisfied with the batting would be Shai Hope, who scored a hard-driven hundred in the second ODI and skipper Pooran impressed throughout the series.
