The visitors have beaten India in five of their seven meetings in T20Is - a comforting stat that should give the new-look West Indies a lot of confidence. The two sides will lock horns at Eden Gardens. Rohit Sharma will be leading the side in the absence of rested Virat Kohli and he will look to lead the team from the front in this opening clash.

INDIA - Rohit Sharma (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem. The first of the series will be played on November 4 and it will start from 7 pm India time. Less than a week after two-time World Cup-winning skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was left out of India's T20I squad, captain Virat Kohli has said he remains an integral part of India's plans.

When and what time is the India vs West Indies?

Hetmyer, 21, is also in superb form scoring 259 runs in the ODI series including the counter-attacking 106 in Guwahati.

West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite said he would have preferred to bowl first as well. The Eden track promises a run feast with a bit of grass on the surface affording even bounce and the ball expected to come on to the bat nicely. The reigning World champions will also be without explosive all-rounder Andre Russell and also off-spinner Sunil Narine, both of whom are injured. The hosts thumped Windies in the Test and ODI series respectively and will look to finish off on victory in the T20I series as well.

In Tests, they were no match to India with the rubbers ending in three days, and while there was some hope in the ODIs, the tourists crumbled sensationally in the last two matches after posting an impressive win in the third game.

"What we have to face at this point in time is with the squad that we have, which in my opinion is a very exciting squad and it's for us to find a way to get the best out of each and every player in that squad, to not only challenge and compete but come out victorious against the Indian team".
