The World Champions India take on the hosts West Indies in today's match. Tri Series embarked on with a match between Srilanka and West Indies which went the hosts' way. West Indies comfortably defeated Srilanka thanks to a big ton from Chris Gayle. He had shown his potential in the last IPL but his big knock was long awaited in the International cricket. Indian cricket fans can enjoy live telecast of today's match on Ten Cricket and Ten Sports TV channels in India.
India recently clinched the Champions Trophy and has sent its full strength squad to West Indies. Sans Irfan Pathan who is out due to an injury, all the other players that participated in Champions Trophy would feature in this triangular series. Shami Ahmed gets an opportunity to enter the squad replacing Irfan Pathan.
Shikhar Dhawan scored loads of runs and clinched the Golden Bat award in the Champions Trophy. Ravindra Jadeja played the role of an all rounder and took maximum wickets to win the Golden Ball award. A lot is expected from these two in this tri series.
It would be a treat to watch batting of Rohit Sharma, Kohli, Karthik, Raina and Dhoni in the tough conditions of West Indies. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma may enjoy bowling out there. R Ashwin and R Jadeja would work as trump cards for skipper Dhoni.
West Indies are high on confidence after their win against Srilanka. In last five matches played against India, they could win just one. But we can't write off the potential of this team especially in front of their home crowd. The cricketers as we all the spectators are so passionate about this game. That adds value to the cricket match.
Let us sit back and relax! And enjoy the match on a cricket friendly Sunday!
