Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja all have a date with destiny as they are on the cusp of surpassing multiple milestones during the IND vs WI ODI series

After a dominant show in the Test series, the Rohit Sharma-led Indian team will be looking to continue their momentum in the ODI series against West Indies as the hosts of the ODI World Cup 2023 begin their preparations for the global spectacle.

With less than 100 days remaining in the World Cup, the Men in Blue will be looking to fine-tune their preparations ahead of the marquee tournament by taking on West Indies for a three-match ODI series.

The first ODI will be played at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on the 27th July, Thursday.

Much like their dominance over the Carribean side in Test cricket, Team India also hold an impressive record against West Indies having not lost an ODI assignment against the Windies since 2006. The Men in Blue are on a winning streak of eight games against the West Indies ahead of the first ODI.

Talking about the current Indian captain first, Rohit is on the verge of history as he needs just 175 runs to go past the 10,000-run mark barrier in ODI cricket. In doing so, he will become only the sixth Indian player to achieve the illustrious feat, behind the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Virat, Sourav Ganguly, current India coach Rahul Dravid, and MS Dhoni.

Kohli on the other hand is currently ranked fifth in the leading run-scorers list in ODI history, and he needs to score 102 runs to go past the 13,000-run mark. Also, he is set to become the fastest player to 13,000 ODI runs.

Jadeja is also set to etch his name in the record books as he will be eyeing to pick up 3 wickets and go past Kapil Dev’s feat of picking the most wickets against West Indies in ODIs (43), while he also needs just 4 dismissals to become the leading wicket-taker in the history India vs West Indies ODI games.
