Then India and Windies will face each other in the three-match ODI series from 15th December to 22nd December. All the T20I matches will be the night game while all the ODI matches will be the day/night contest. It will be the last international assignments in 2019 for both these teams.
T20I venues swapped due to the security reason
Due to the security reason, the venues of the first and third T20I of the series between India and Windies have been swapped. According to the initial schedule, Mumbai had to organise the opening T20I of the series but they can’t able to provide the security on 6th December 2019. So, after the discussion, the BCCI has decided to swap the venues between the first and third T20I of the forthcoming series. Hyderabad will now host the opening T20I of the series instead of hosting the final T20I of the series.
Since 2002, Windies have never won a bilateral series in India. At present, Windies are struggling in international cricket due to facing a transition period, while the Indian team is very strong in every format.
