Ahead of the first ODI against West Indies in Guwahati, the Indian team have named the 12 players who are in contention for a place in the playing XI.

A formidable India will hope to get more answers for their unresolved middle-order puzzle when they take on a reeling West Indies in the five-match ODI series starting Sunday, ticking off the home team's countdown to the 2019 World Cup.

India have 18-odd games left to decide their middle order before the World Cup in England.

Virat Kohli and Co. have won their last five off the nine matches while West Indies have won two and the other two matches were cancelled.

Probable 12: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami and Khaleel Ahmed. Star Sports 1, Star Sports Hindi and Star Sports Tamil will provide live television coverage of the match in India.

Rishabh Pant is set to make his ODI debut after a good show with the bat in the Test series and Ambati Rayudu is likely to be India's No.4 after captain Virat Kohli backed him to come good after a good show in the Asia Cup.
