Andre Russell out of T20I series against India

The West Indies T20I squad is already depleted by the absence of Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis at the top of the order, with both players pulling out due to personal reasons.

All-rounder Krunal Pandya and left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed received their maiden T20I cap on Sunday as they made their debut for India in the first T20I against West Indies at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. "No comments, you will be sent a press release later", she told IANS soon after skipper Carlos Brathwaite finished his pre-match media interaction. West Indies are also the only team to have won the ICC World T20 title twice.

However, though short on experience, Brathwaite backed the squad to make their mark, pointing out that the young stars were up for the challenge. "We wish the team every success on a challenging assignment in India", he said.

Rovman Powell, had had opened in the final ODI in Thiruvananthapuram, was listed to open again with Darren Bravo, who was playing his first T20 since 2014 and first global since November 2016. Russell, who was initially part of the 15-man squad announced to take on India, was yet to join the squad on the eve of the first game.

However, Brathwaite said there was no shame in being labelled underdogs, especially against a strong side home-side.

More than 16 percent of voters to date have Spanish surnames, a higher share than in any previous midterm election. The political party numbers are broken down to: 1.29 million Republican voters and 1.23 million Democratic voters.

Where and how to watch the online live streaming of India vs West Indies? "They will hope to put pressure on the Indian batting and hope that early wickets expose the newer Indian batsmen to pressure".

"I know the crowd in Kolkata is always massive so it's very, very loud".

The fact that the last time India beat them in 2014 would also be playing on their minds as they gear up for the three-match series opener in Kolkata on Sunday.

A release from the BCCI announced the starting 12 for the first T20I against Windies at Eden Gardens, which includes Krunal Pandya, who could well make his global debut. Oshane Thomas' express pace will also be an asset for the team.
