When India step onto the field🏃 against West Indies today at Antigua, Anil Kumble will be slightly nervous😓 behind that steely gaze. This match being his debut as the coach of India😯. Virat Kohli and boys will be eyeing a victory✌ though since WI are not fielding their best players⭐ like Gayle, Bravo or Sammy following a dispute with the cricket board. Kohli has indicated that he will be looking to attack👊 from the word go but will also need to have patience. West Indian conditions can be slow🐢 with heavy outfields and one needs to show patience to score runs and also scalp wickets😯. The pitch at Sir Vivian Richards stadium appears to be green but is expected to become slower and lower as the match progresses😣.
India have won the toss and elected to bat first👍. India have opted to go with 5 bowlers (3 pacers and 2 spinners) - Jadeja misses out as Ashwin and Mishra are included🙆. The batting lineup has a thin feel to it with Rohit Sharma missing out😟. WI, on the other hand, have given a debut to Roston Chase and are playing just the 4⃣ players.
