Virat Kohli,Graeme Smith,Test cricket

All-rounder Krunal Pandya and left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed received their maiden T20I cap on Sunday as they made their debut for India in the first T20I against West Indies at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

India will be looking at its current No. 2 ranking in the ICC list to fire itself up for the challenge.

Brathwaite will be back at the same venue where he hit four consecutive sixes off Ben Stokes to break the hearts of English fans by winning their second World Twenty20 title in 2016. Moreover, the visitors have been bolstered by the return of Keiron Pollard, Darren Bravo, Andre Russel and Carlos Brathwaite.

This was India's first win against the World T20 champions since 2014, spanning five matches.

West Indies have suffered a major blow as they will be missing their all-rounder, Andre Russell. Shai Hope, who had a good run in the ODIs, has been named his replacement.

The details were released following a meeting between Turkey's chief prosecutor Firdan and his Saudi counterpart Saud al Mojeb . Jamal Khashoggi's image on a poster during an October 8 protest at the entrance to Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul .

The Eden crowd, apart from Kohli will also miss M.S. Dhoni who has not been picked for the T20Is. Pant will be taking his position behind the stumps, while his senior Dinesh Karthik will be adding strength to the team's middle-order.

The Indian team has been on a roll at home for quite some time and against a weakened Windies have looked invincible for most parts of the series. This apart, the side will expect K.L. Rahul, who is now ranked No. 3 in the ICC's batting rankings, to come good.

Rohit Sharma will captain India in the first T20I against Windies on Sunday after BCCI announced the starting 12 for the game in Kolkata. Shikhar Dhawan also has a chance to re-establish his credentials after a moderate outing in the one-dayers. The most probable option to be left out out of these 12 looks to be Yuzvendra Chahal as Krunal Pandya provides an all-round option at number seven.

India: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant (wk), Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal.

The match will begin at 7 pm.
