India being the world champion and also the number one ranked team looks very powerful. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan make a formidable opening pair. Dhawan is famous for his hard hitting innings. And how can we forget the 209 runs innings by Rohit Sharma in the recently concluded India vs Australia ODI series. Virat Kohli does a good job in the middle order along with Raina and Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh needs to click soon if he has to retain his position in the team for a longer period.

As far as the bowling is concerned, India suffered a setback against Australia due to poor bowling. While Ashwin looked unimpressive in last ODI series, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar struggled too. Vinay Kumar, Ishant Sharma and Amit Mishra leaked a lot of runs. Hopefully Shami provides some strength to this fragile bowling line up and Ashwin capitalizes on his good form of test series. A lot is expected from Ravindra Jadeja who is a good allrounder in the team.

Chris Gayle is one such player in the opposition who can turn tables any time. But he went unnoticed in the test series due to 'not so impressive' performances. He will be a big challenge for the Indian bowlers. West Indies team would expect good contributions from Deonarine, Powell, Bravo, Samuels and Ramdin.

Restricting Indian batsmen for a low total would be a tough task for West Indies bowlers. Especially on Indian pitches, the home team is renowned to amass a lot of runs. Above all the form of West Indies team has been worse with only seven wins out of last 20 matches.

Let us hope this doesn't happen to be a one sided affair where the world champs register comprehensive victories. All we need is a toughly fought contest and let the team that plays better shall win.
