Andre Russell to miss T20I series against India

Team India

The 31-year-old has a world record score of 264 in ODIs at the Eden Gardens in 2014, besides winning two IPL titles, in 2013 and 2015.

Left-hander Darren Bravo, meanwhile, has not played worldwide cricket in two years because of a protracted dispute with Cricket West Indies, and the last of his 12 T20s came four years ago.

The Windies, who missed the big names in the Test and ODI series, will be bolstered by the arrival of star players Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell, who will be back at his IPL home venue.

However, though short on experience, Brathwaite backed the squad to make their mark, pointing out that the young stars were up for the challenge. They have played eight games in all so far out of which one match has remained inconclusive. Russell will have another fitness Test ahead of T10 tournament in the UAE that begins on November 21, following which the West Indies selectors are hopeful he can play on the tour of Bangladesh. He recently played the CPL for Jamaica Tallawahs, and then went to the Afghanistan Premier League where he played one game for Nangarhar Leopards on October 9, a day after he had been picked in West Indies' T20I squad.

"I guess we're not accustomed to the underdog tag but we have to take it this time around and it's not something we're ashamed of really".

Trump, Xi upbeat on ending trade war
China's official Xinhua News Agency said that Xi accepted the call at Trump's invitation. "We talked about many subjects, with a heavy emphasis on Trade", he said on Twitter .

India failed to overcome Brathwaite's men in their last four encounters and the Windies ended the home team's campaign in the 2016 T20I World Cup, defeating them in the semi-finals in Mumbai.

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.

West Indies were hammered in the two-Test series before they lost the five-match series 1-3.

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 team is already without the services of Chris Gayle and Sunil Narine though the likes of Kieron Pollard and Darren Bravo are here.
