India's much-needed win after the disheartening loss at WTC Finals came at the right moment as the team started the new 2025-27 cycle in full glory, after their dominating win over West Indies in the Test Series which concluded this Tuesday.
But the job remains unfinished as Indian's men's cricket squad would now shift their focus to white-ball cricket. The upcoming contest comprises a three-match ODI series and a five-match T20 International series.
For Rohit Sharma and his team, the ODI series holds immense importance as it provides them with an opportunity to address their concerns and fine-tune their strategies before the 2023 ODI World Cup, scheduled later in the year. On the contrary, the West Indies, who failed to qualify for the ODI World Cup for the first time ever, may not be as future-oriented in their approach. Their primary focus will likely be on securing a series victory in the ODIs after a close call in the Test series, which was marred by rain interruptions.
