All three of the matches will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
Daren Sammy said West Indies could fancy its chances against India in the white ball series, although the home side will start favorites. kieron Pollard knows the Indian conditions like the back of his hand. That could come in handy for the West Indies cricket team on its upcoming tour of India, according to the two time T20 World Cup winning captain Daren Sammy, who has led the World Giants into the final of the Legends League Cricket, to be played on Saturday.
“He has been playing in India for so long (at the IPL) and knows the conditions very well,” said Sammy, who had captained Pollard during the West Indies’ successful campaign at the World T20 in 2012.

As well as Kemar Roach has returned to the white-ball squad after a hiatus of three years with his last ODI match coming against India back in August 2019. According to former West Indies player Daren Sammy, Roach is a quality bowler who can take wickets in both ODI and the T20 series.
“We need bowlers who can take wickets in both the ODI and T20 series. Kemar is a quality bowler. We all know his records in Test cricket. He gets wickets with the new ball. When you play against quality guys, especially in India, you need guys to get breakthroughs with the new ball. If not, you could find chasing 300-plus, especially on good Indian wickets. So I could understand the selection process behind it,” Sammy told
