Ambati Rayudu on Kohli

India's focus on World Cup

The Indian cricket team is focused to address a few key issues before World Cup. "Now these 18 games would be to find the perfect combination that we want to take into the World Cup," Kohli said.

"Barring injuries or niggles, we want one combination to play through and through. Apart from bowlers resting here and there in the ODIs, we only changed the No. 4 slot because we wanted someone to cement the place," Kohli reasoned.

12:53 (IST) 21 Oct 2018
'Great opportunity for youngsters'

Addressing the media ahead of the match, West Indies skipper Jason Holder said it is good opportunity for the youngsters but added that it won't be easy to beat India. "It won't be easy with India playing some very good cricket at the moment. They probably are the best one-day side in the world. We expect a tough challenge from them. It's a young side, a lot of unfamiliar faces. But it is an opportunity for them to showcase what they got," he said.

The conditions in Guwahati are likely to remain overcast for most part of the day. This means that fast-bowlers will get help from the wicket. There is also a bit of chill in the air which again will aid the pacers. Since, it is a day-night game, dew is expected to play an important role in the second innings.
