Windies unchanged for India visit

West Indies have kept faith with the one-day global squad that drew 1-1 with Afghanistan for the opening two matches with India later this week.

Even after playing to a disappointing 1-1 draw in the recent three-match series against Afghanistan, the Windies selectors have kept faith with the 13-man squad.

It includes one uncapped player in seamer Kesrick Williams who was drafted into the squad for the third one-dayer against Afghanistan last week, following injury to speedster Shannon Gabriel.

The West Indies, as the top eight teams in the world slugged it out in the Champions Trophy, were busy with their own series, trying to get those ranking points up in a bid to qualify automatically for the 2019 World Cup - only the top eight ranked teams are guaranteed qualification.

They were poor against the Afghans, suffering a stunning 63-run defeat in the opener before labouring to a four-wicket win in the second game in pursuit of 136.

Jason Holder (captain), Devendra Bishoo, Jonathan Carter, Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, Shai Hope (wk), Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammad, Ashley Nurse, Kieran Powell, Rovman Powell and Kesrick Williams.
