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 31-year old has a world record score of 264 in ODIs here in 2014, a Test ton (177) and two IPL titles won on this ground.

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. They have not lost to India in previous four encounters and they will bank on happy memories of their previous encounter at the Eden Gardens when current captain Carlos Brathwaite hit four sixes in the final over against England to hand Windies their second WT20 trophy in 2014. The humidity is expected to be high and there will be a bit of dew as well throughout the match. Andre Russell will be missing out on the series due to injury, according to chairman of selectors Courtney Browne. After registering comprehensive victories against the Windies in the Test and ODI series, an upbeat Team India will look to continue their winning momentum in the shortest format as well.

The home team has won only two of the eight games, losing five; one match ended as "no result".

The Indian team has been on a roll at home for quite some time and against a weakened Windies have looked invincible for most parts of the series.
