Team India will return to international action on December 6 when the side takes on West Indies in three-match T20I and ODI series. The series will also see the return of Indian captain Virat Kohli, who was rested for the side's last limited-overs assignment against Bangladesh. With Virat, other first-team stars like Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami are also making a comeback in both the formats.
Shikhar Dhawan, who was initially the part of the squads for both, T20Is and ODIs, was ruled out of the former due to an injury. Sanju Samson replaced the opening batsman in the squad.
Team India is in high spirits after remarkable series victories against South Africa and Bangladesh in Tests. While the T20I series against the Proteas ended in a 1-1 draw, India made a comeback to win the three-match series against Bangladesh 2-1.
India had toured West Indies after the 2019 World Cup earlier, where they cruised to victories in all - ODI, T20I and Test series.
West Indies, meanwhile, have been in the country for a while as they took on Afghanistan in all the three formats. While they whitewashed the Asian side in ODIs, the side faced a 2-1 loss in T20Is. In the one-off Test, the Windies registered an emphatic 9-wicket win.
Kieron Pollard will lead the side against India.
