last two ODIs against New Zealand A with the likes of Kedar Jadhav and Mandeep Singh rising to the occasion.
Jadhav has delivered consistently, making unbeaten 30, 37 and 57, respectively in the last series. The Maharashtra batsman will be hoping to get a chance to go up the order to showcase his talent.
Yusuf Pathan, who has been provided another lifeline by selectors, will hope to recover from his steep fall since the 2011 World Cup. He is a powerful and aggressive right-handed batsman and a right-arm off-break bowler.
The Indian attack will be spearheaded by Irfan Pathan, who is looking for his comeback to the Indian Test team.
Irfan was ruled out of the team for the tri-series in the Caribbean due to a hamstring injury.
Jaydev Unadkat, who did well during India's tour of Zimbabwe, will aim to continue using this series to put out his best and make a strong case for himself in the senior team. He has the fire in his belly and an uncanny knack to up the ante with his deceptive pace.
Praveen Kumar will look to get back into the scheme of things with his ability to swing the ball both ways.
The West Indies A, on the other hand, who performed well during their home series against Sri Lanka-A in June, will aim for improvement, starting with the first ODI.
A number of young West Indian players will try to grab the opportunity to show their skills, especially with the senior team set to tour India next month.
Kieran Powell, one of the players looking to formalise his place in the senior side, has been handed the reins of captaincy and head coach Junior Bennett has high hopes from the left-handed opener from Nevis.
Besides Powell, the side for the three 50-over contests and the one Twenty20 game includes the likes of vice-captain Veerasammy Permaul, Andre Russell, Andre Fletcher, Devon Thomas, Kirk Edwards, Nikita Miller and Narsingh Deonarine,
all of whom have featured in the senior team.
Meanwhile, in a press release, the KSCA announced that entry for the public would be free for the entire tour, including the four-day games-in Mysore,
