Windies pick spinner Cornwall for India

Windies pick spinner Cornwall for India”

The 26-year-old Cornwall weighs 140 kg and stands at 6 feet 6 inch.

Windies had made 54 for 1 in 13 overs when rain halted play in the first ODI against India for the third time. He has also played three one-dayers for ICC World XI, scoring 55 runs.

Virat Kohli produced yet another masterclass in one-day worldwide cricket when he slammed his 42nd ODI hundred against the West Indies in Port of Spain on Sunday. "In terms of Test matches for me is a no no", Ambrose had said back then.

And a good start will be key for the Windies if they are to break their recent poor run in ODIs of which has seen them win just six of 20 matches this year. "The more stops you have, the more you want to be careful to ensure that the players don't injure themselves", Kohli said at the post-match presentation. Opening batsman John Campbell is the lone Jamaican in the squad.

The six-foot five-inch 26-year-old has taken 260 wickets in 55 first-class matches and will be handed his chance to shine on the global stage in the two-match series, which begins on August 22.

Meanwhile, Kohli didn't get a chance to bat in the first One Day International against West Indies at Guyana.

The 30-year-old is now only behind legendary Sachin Tendulkar, who has an astounding 18,426 runs to his name in the 50-over format.

"We believe he can provide an attacking option to our bowling attack with his sharp turn and extra bounce". He can also lend a bit of depth to the batting, so we are looking forward to him coming into the squad and making a valuable contribution, " said Haynes. "But we do not think he is ready yet to last five days of a gruelling Test match".

Kohli's domination against the West Indies can be gauged from the fact that he struck four back-to-back centuries against it between July 2017 and October 2018.

The team is completed by captain Jason Holder, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich, Shimron Hetmeyer, Shai Hope, Keemo Paul.
