India is set to host West Indies for 3-match ODI series starting February 6 (Sunday). As both teams look to sort their combination, we can expect high firepower from the players trying to solidify their place, keeping 202 World Cup in mind. 

Both the teams - India & West Indies, are struggling to find the right team to perform desirably in the ODI World Cup, to be held in India in 2023. As most of the Indian pitches are batter-friendly, teams would look to develop a batting unit that can fire throughout the 50 overs.
