IND vs WI: Coachless Kohli&Co will look to put focus back on cricket

New Delhi:

Team India have been having bad days for some time. They lost to arch-rivals Pakistan in the recently concluded Champions Trophy final and then off the field controversy regarding coach Anil Kumble's exit after rifts with captain Virat Kohli. However, Kohli and company will look to start afresh when they face off West Indies in the series opener One-day International at Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain in Trinidad.

After the humiliating defeat against Pakistan in the Champions Trophy Finals, coachless team India would like to gain its confidence back by winning the series opener against West Indies.
