Bhuvi not yet fit to play

India had made only one change ahead of Afghanistan's match and that was of Mohammad Shami coming into the team in place of Bhuvaneswar Kumar.

Kumar is yet to gain full fitness and it is expected that Mohammad Shami, who took four wickets in the previous match, will continue to be in the XI. Other than this, India is unlikely to make any more changes to their side.

Sunil Ambris replaces Andre Russell in the squad

West Indies had recently announced that Andre Russell has been ruled out of the tournament and Sunil Ambris will be replacing him in the squad.

It is not certain whether he will be slotted directly into the side or not.

But if Evin Lewis misses out due to his fitness, then either Ambris or Darren Bravo will come into the team. West Indies are expected not to make any further changes to their line-up.

The forecast of the day ahead of the important match seems great.

The sun will be out and there are no chances of rain. The wicket should be dry and this will invite spinners into the play. India has two quality spinners who will enjoy bowling on this track.
