India won the toss and opted to bat first to start up the first Innings


Playing  XI-:
INDIA: Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Wriddhiman Saha(w), Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav

WEST INDIES: Kraigg Brathwaite, Rajendra Chandrika, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Jermaine Blackwood, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich(w), Carlos Brathwaite, Jason Holder(c), Devendra Bishoo, Shannon Gabriel


Team India showed some faith on the senior player Shikhar Dhawan giving him a chance to prove him up and K.L Rahul is not given a chance in the opening match but hopefully he will be seen warming up his bat.
