Having surrendered their Champions Trophy title in London on Sunday, India will be looking for a quick means of redemption. The loss against Pakistan in the final has already sent shockwaves across the nation and that can only be taken care of by a great outing in the Caribbean. To add to that Caylpso challenge, the men in blue also battle the mental blues, surrounding the sudden resignation of coach Anil Kumble, with reports of a serious rift with skipper Virat Kohli coming in.

On Friday though, when India get down at Trinidad to take on the hosts, the blueprint for the 2019 World Cup would provide a clear insight of what to expect. That’s precisely why the likes of Rishab Pant and Kuldeep Yadav have been taken among the touring party. It will be interesting to see though, what will be the team’s composition for the first ODI at Port of Spain.


Below, we have a look at the likely Indian XI for the first game.
