Virat Kohli-led Indian team is taking on a second string West Indies side in first of the five ODIs at the Queens Park Oval in Trinidad on Friday. The match commenced at 6:30 pm (IST).
The 'Men In Blue' would look to put behind their debacle in the finals of the ICC Champions Trophy against Pakistan and would look to start on a winning note on their Carribean Tour. India has gone with a full-fledged team which featured in the Champions Trophy but have rested their opener Rohit Sharma and seamer Jasprit Bumrah for the series.

# Pitch Report: There is real moisture on the wicket. Don't expect the wicket to dry out very very quickly. The wicket at Port of Spain is going to be two-paced. For some strange reason the pitch generally tends to spin more in the first innings. If you win the toss, have a bowl, reckons Jeff Dujon.
# West Indies have won the toss and elected to bowl
