India's Tour To West Indies 2017 - Time to Capitalise for Both the Teams

India vs West Indies 2017 Cricket Series

Cricket moves on. From a colourful IPL to multi-team ICC Champions trophy, we now have bilateral series lined up. And this not only limits to the Indian cricket calendar but for all the teams. Just to update you guys, due to tight schedule of cricket teams involved in a lot of bilateral series, we won't be having 2018 T20 World Cup. The next big ICC event would be the 2019 ICC World Cup that would be held in England. Moving back to India's tour to West Indies, it's time for both the teams to capitalise and stabilise. West Indies haven't had too much of a good time against Afghanistan. India played well to reach the finals of Champions Trophy but they lost to Pakistan miserably in the finals. Time to revive!

Watch India vs West Indies 2017 Live Streaming

Cricket fans can watch India vs West Indies cricket series live streaming on Ten Sports HD network. The live telecast will be available in English and Hindi commentary.


Youngsters here to prove a point

This would certainly be a series for youngsters. Indian squad includes faces like Kuldeep Yadav and Rishabh Pant. At times when we feel tracks are too flat, likes of Jadeja and Ashwin could be ineffective. Here comes into picture someone like Kuldeep Yadav. One who can trouble the batsmen with some mystery deliveries. Rishabh Pant, the wicketkeeper batsmen has also proved his worth in the IPL.

For West Indies, its a good opportunity to turn fortunes. After two series losses at home, they have to pull up their sleeves and come up with path breaking performances. Likes of Jason Holder, Roston Chase, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, etc can make a mark in this series.

India favourites but can't take things lightly

Indian team start as favourites. It is a tussle between a third ranked ODI side against a ninth ranked side. Still the visitors will have to be on their toes. Cricket serves lot of uncertainties. The match can turn towards any team within a span of few minutes. Virat Kohli would love to nail a white wash in West Indies.

Just a small walk down the memory lane - Champions Trophy was introduced in 1998 that included top teams from the world competing in a knock out format. During the days of Jagmohan Dalmiya, there were good attempts to take cricket to newer countries. The first edition in 1998 was played in Bangladesh which was won by South Africa under Hansie Cronje.

It was followed by six more successful editions. Last one was played in England in 2013. MS Dhoni and his men were comprehensive enough to beat all the teams they faced and win the trophy. Later ICC had plans to scrap this event forever but they decided to continue with the tournament. Hence we are now into the eight of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.

Let's see who clinches the title this time. Stay updated with live scores and streaming on HotStar and Star Sports.

This is going to be the biggest of all the recent test series. Steve Waugh once said, India is the final frontier. India is the toughest to beat at home. Rightly so, India is now on a long winning streak especially in the test cricket. Virat Kohli as a captain has had a ride of success so far. He will face his toughest challenge against Steve Smith's Australia. The visitors would also have a daunting task of beating in form India in India.

Australian think tank has accepted that they aren't pretty sure about the pitches they would play on. At the same time they are aware how other teams have struggled to adapt in India. They have their own plans for all Indian batsmen, especially Virat Kohli. At the same time they need to roll up their sleeves to face the Indian spinners such as Ashwin and Jadeja.

Indian team is high on confidence with a great winning streak. They would love to continue their dream run with another series win. While cricket experts have predicted another 4-0 win in favour of India, Australia would certainly not give it away so easily. And we all know how uncertain the game of cricket is. It can swing either ways.
