After a thrilling T20 International series, India cricket team will eye a winning start to their three-match One Day International (ODI) series against the Windies cricket team. The two sides will clash at M A Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday. In the third T20 match, India scored 240 runs, with top-order batsman – Rohit Sharma, K L Rahul and Virat Kohli – sending West Indies bowlers on a leatherhunt. However, the Indian bowlers were also taken to the cleaners in the three T20Is, and former head coach Anil Kumble cautioned Kohli and company that they should not take the West Indies batters' hard-hitting abilities lightly in ODIs.


"I'd like to see the bowling come through because it would yet be a challenge against West Indies. They're all powerful hitters and it is going to be good surface, so you would want the bowling to come good," Kumble had said while speaking at Star Sports' Nerolac Cricket Live show.
