India Playing XI vs WI: India vs West Indies 1st ODI Live: The three-match ODI series against the West Indies may not be the top priority for Team India, but it is also an opportunity. With only a few matches before the 2022 T20 World Cup, the players are hopeful of getting a place in the squad. One of them is Arshdeep Singh, who is likely to make his ODI debut on Friday. But Rahul Dravid will have to take some big calls for the series. Follow IND vs WI live updates on InsideSport.IN

With three pacers including Shardul Thakur, the bowling combination looks simple, with Dravid having to decide on a second and third seamer. Arshdeep Singh bowled brilliantly on his T20 debut. He is likely to finally get the nod after missing the ODI series against England. Which brings up the question, who will be the third seamer? Famous Krishna or Mohammed Siraj?

India Playing XI vs WI: Why Arshdeep Singh is the preferred option?

  • Arshdeep Singh is a reliable option as a death-over specialist and with the T20 World Cup ahead, he is still in the plans.
  • He is now the favorite in the team after not getting a chance in England’s ODI series.
  • Another reason is that Mohammad Siraj and Prasid Krishna were both expensive during their outings against England.
  • While they are still the best option considering experience, Dravid would like to see more of Arshdeep ready as a backup seamer for the T20 World Cup.
  • In his only T20I, Arshdeep conceded just 18 runs in his 3.3 overs, taking two wickets.
  • With Hardik Pandya out for the ODI series, India will need a third seamer and that’s where he fits in perfectly.

India Playing XI vs WI: Who will open with Dhawan and who will make it in the middle order?

  • The biggest headache for Dravid is the opening slot.
  • Apart from Dhawan, India have Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Sanju Samson as options.
  • Although Ishan Kishan is the front-runner, it is the left-right combination that will be the focus of discussion.
  • India may prefer a left-right combination for the openers and in that case Shubman Gill may get a nod at No.3 with Ishan.
  • With Deepak Hooda, Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer competing for two places in the middle-order.
  • Suryakumar Yadav is preferred at number 4, between Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson.
  • However, Hooda can bowl a few overs and considering Shreyas Iyer ahead of the pecking order, the two are likely to make the XI.

For other roles, Ravindra Jadeja, who is the vice-captain of the series, will be a floater. He brings left-handed options and can be used in the lower middle-order depending on combinations and match-ups. Hooda may have to drop to No.6 as Shreyas Iyer has mostly played from No.3 to No.5.
