Virat Kohli-led Team India will now look to continue their winning streak in three-match ODI series that starts from Thursday at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.
With the return of shikhar Dhawan, he along with Rohit Sharma will open the innings for India. There are more than four contenders for the number four spot. Manish Pandey has got his call as he averages above 70 while playing for India A. Shreyas Iyer is also rewarded of his performance with an average of 50.
