The Indian Cricket team has been on a roll and enters the major tournament on the back of impressive performances against teams like Australia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Captain MS Dhoni seems to have finally found a balanced team, and their undefeated performance in the Asia Cup 2016 was evidence enough. Dhoni though may not opt for the strongest team and give other players like Harbhajan Singh, Ajinkya Rahane and Mohammad Sami among others a chance.
West Indies, on the other hand, may not have had the best of times in ODIs and Tests, but it still manages to surprise in the T20 format. The team includes some of the biggest names like Chris Gayle, Keiron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, and Darren Sammy among others.
