After having lost the toss and being asked to bat first, India captain Shikhar Dhawan mentioned that Ishan Kishan is not part of the side for this first ODI match against West Indies. Incidentally, Ishan has not been part of the India playing 11 since the first T20I encounter in England and did not get a game during the three-match ODI series as well. India have named Sanju Samson as their specialist wicket-keeper batsman in the team. However, Kishan has mostly played white-ball cricket for India as an opener.
