The first ODI between West Indies and India has been called off due to persistent rain. West Indies won the toss and elected to bowl first as the Indian openers got off to a great start. Both Shikhar Dhawan (87) and Ajinkya Rahane (62) got to their fifties as the visitors were looking good to post a big total on board before rain interrupted play. India were 199 for 3 in 39.2 overs when play was officially called off at Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain.(SCORECARD)
For India, this series is also an ideal platform to test the team's bench strength. With Jasprit Bumrah being rested for the series, it will be an ideal opportunity for the captain to check out Mohammed Shami, who did not get a game during the Champions Trophy. The pacer has not played any official ODI since the 2015 World Cup semi-final post which he had multiple surgeries and played a few Test matches only. Shami will be keen to regain his place in the ODI XI and West Indies gives him a proper chance to do so.
