No Rohit Sharma, no Virat Kohli, no Jasprit Bumrah, no Hardik Pandya and no Rishabh Pant!

Top Indian players will all be missing from action when India take on the West Indies in the 3-match ODI series that starts on Friday.

Even as the big names aren't part of the squad, the series provides India with a golden opportunity to test their bench strength.

All eyes will be on the captain & vice-captain duo of Shikhar Dhawan & Ravindra Jadeja, and how they handle the relatively inexperienced line-up. With Avesh, Siraj, Arshdeep, Prasidh & Thakur making up India's pace department with a combined experience of 39 ODIs, it will be interesting to see how they handle the Caribbean challenge.

The home side too will be hoping for a much better show from their batting unit that struggled in all three games against Bangladesh. Jason Holder's return will definitely be a big boost for the side that failed to win a single game in the 3-match ODI series.

Only time will tell whether this Dhawan-led side can outperform the Men from the Caribbean.
