led by Shikhar Dhawan Team Despite the absence of many members of their first XI, including regular skippers Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, India is considered the favorite in the three-match ODI series against the West Indies. It has a lot to do with India’s domination against West Indies throughout forms, but especially in ODIs. This is in addition to India’s recent white-ball performance, in which they defeated England in both T20Is and ODIs in their backyard. West Indies vs. India: First ODI Live Score

In the 1980s and 1990s, visiting West Indies was one of India’s most challenging jobs. However, in the twenty-first century, India has dominated the competition, winning 14 of the 27 games played there. Over the previous 20 years, India has maintained its advantage over the West Indies by winning 67 of the 136 ODI matches.

India won’t need to wait for the series to be over to set a new record. All they have to do is defeat West Indies in Friday’s series opener at Port of Spain’s Queen’s Park Oval. If they follow suit, they will surpass 2007 to become the squad with the greatest win-loss record away from home. India and Afghanistan are currently locked with a win/loss ratio of 4.5. An interesting fact is that India has a win/loss ratio of 4.5 at two distinct away venues: Harare in Zimbabwe and Port of Spain in the West Indies. If India triumphs on Friday, they would have the highest win-loss ratio in Port of Spain since 2007 (5 wins, 5 losses). India has suffered two losses at the location since 2007 against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka at the World Cup. They have won every game they have played at Queen’s Park Oval since that time.
