India win toss, opt to field against West Indies in first ODI

Bridgetown: India skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to field against West Indies in the first ODI on Thursday at the Kensington Oval.
India capped off an impressive display earlier in the two-match Test series. They won the series by 1-0 and will be looking to continue their hot form in the ODI's as well. This series will certainly aid them in their quest of claiming the World Cup. India skipper Rohit Sharma said during the time of toss, "We are gonna field first, no particular reason. We are gonna try a few different things. We want to head into the World Cup with a clear mindset. For us, the results are also important. At times, we are going to try out different players but the results are important for us. All cricketers around the world who are playing all formats need to adapt well. Hopefully, we can get what we want here. We have got four seamers and two spinners."
West Indies skipper Shai Hope said during the time of toss, "Every series means a lot. We've got to play each game and each series to win. Now is a good opportunity to do so against a top team. We have got some quality spinners as well. We will try to put up a good score on the surface. There will be a bit moisture and we need to be bat carefully in the beginning."
