Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews acknowledged his side would start as underdogs despite being ranked three places higher than the hosts in fifth.
Home skipper Dwayne Bravo acknowledged the series doesn't hold the same significance of the recently concluded Champions Trophy but recognizes there is much at stake.
"It's always good to play here in Jamaica. We have a very good record and that will be in the back of our minds," Bravo said.
Team India is No. 1 on the ICC rankings, now hold both main one-day titles following their triumph in the World Cup on home soil two years ago. It will be a challenge for Sri Lanka and West Indies to overcome the champions Men in Blue.
