West Indies is touring India for the three-match T20I series starting from 6th December and three-match ODI series starting from 15th November. West Indies allrounder Sherfane Rutherford opined that the team is preparing and training themselves for the Indian Condition.

The Carribean player had spent a long time in the Indian conditions while playing against Afghanistan. West Indies had a long series with Afghanistan where the two teams played three ODIs, three T20Is and only Test match in Lucknow. Sherfane Rutherford said that the team is trying to adapt the Indian pitches to give their best.

“Most of the Indian pitches are good wickets to bat on. We have been working on adapting to the pitches so we can improve our game. I don’t think players are thinking too much about the World Cup or IPL, it’s just about performance and everything else will follow from there.”

The 21-year-old allrounder has played three T20I matches. He will first-time play against India. He last played the Abu Dhabi T10 League for Delhi Bulls. However, the player is not able to create an impact on the team.
