India v WI -2011 1st ODI Preview

What


The first One-Day International of the five-match series between India and West Indies


When


November 29, 2011. The game begins at 14:30 pm, IST. The match is a day-night affair.

Where



Barabati Stadium, Cuttack. India has not lost a game at this venue since November 2003 when they lost to New Zealand by four wickets. The wicket for this match promises plenty of runs, which could mean that India, given their batting firepower, can extend their winning record at this venue.


The Teams


India is without the services of MS Dhoni who has been rested for this series. Virender Sehwag has been named skipper, a role he is returning to after the last three ODIs of the five-match series against Sri Lanka in 2009-’10.


Dhoni has been India’s star in the last two ODI series that India has played. He was the Man-of-the-Series when India finished on the losing side in England (0-3) earlier this year and also played a couple of crucial match-winning knocks when England was thrashed 5-0 by India in October. Without him in the side, Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina will have to play a bigger role in the middle-order.


West Indies have a better chance of beating India in the 50-over format. They proved their mettle when they came back to win the last two games of the five-match ODI series against India in the Caribbean in June this year. Also, their ODI series win against Bangladesh (2-1) just before this tour would boost their confidence.But winning in India is a difficult proposition, as most touring sides have discovered in recent times. For that to happen, the West Indies will have to lean heavily on their batsmen to delivery consistently good scores.



Trivia



Of the last 25 games played at home, India has lost only two ODIs (both versus South Africa). Of the other 23 games, they have won 21 while one match was tied and one was abandoned.


West Indies have the second-best winning percentage (58.97%) against India in India, after Pakistan (62.96%).
