Much to ponder for WINDIES ahead of India test

Thu, Dec 5, '19

by KRISSANIA YOUNG

India

November 17 2019: Three down and fourteen to go in the WINDIES World Cup preparation trail.

December 5, 2019: Jason Holder turns the reins over to Keiron Pollard with the West Indies poised to battle India in a three-match T20I series.

Following a clinical performance, in the longest format, to conquer Afghanistan inside three days in difficult ‘away’ conditions, the West Indies now travel to Hyderabad to continue their 2020 ICC Men's T20 World Cup preparations against India. While Fabian Allen and Denesh Ramdin have both recovered from injuries to reclaim their place in the squad; the performances of Keemo Paul, in their absence, see the Guyanese retaining his place at the expense of Alzarri Joseph. The West Indies will also welcome back vice-captain, Nicholas Pooran—who is set to serve his final match-ban in the first T20I on Friday—during this series.
