Suresh Raina is named as skipper to lead India Green in Duleep Trophy beginning from 23 August. Former BCCI Chief selector Kiran More said, “Raina can walk into the T20 team. He is a match winner; he’s a brilliant fielder and can also chip in with some spin bowling. Even if I have to close my eyes to pick a team, Raina would be a part of it.”

Men in Blue last time met West Indies in the semifinal of 2016 world twenty20 championship in which Caribbean side beat India to enter in the final and later on won tournament.

  1. Hope Indian Captain MS Dhoni will do better than the previous matches. We all wish that Indian Team will win in USA as we are going to the ground for that matches. While one of our TV Company providing the T20 Matches live online is YuppTV, we want to experience the live cricketing shots in the ground..
