India try to continue unbeaten run against WI
Kingston (Jamaica): Indian cricket team would aim to continue the unbeaten run when they take on the West Indies, who would be eyeing revenge, in their opening clash of the tri-nation ODI series on Sunday.
The West Indians, on the other hand, would be eager to extract revenge for the loss to India in a Champions Trophy group match.
The hosts have in fact, started impressively in the ongoing series mauling Sri Lanka in their lung-opener. The biggest positive from the game was the return to form of Chris Gayle, who was slightly off-colour in the Champions Trophy.
Gayle’s marauding hundred, which included seven sixes and nine fours, helped the West Indies overhaul a 209-run target in a mere 37.5 overs. He would without doubt be the backbone of the West Indian batting against India as well.
Both the sides are well aware of each other’s strengths and weaknesses as their key players have played in the Indian Premier League either with or against each other.
