The magnificent men in maroon – West Indies, known as fearless stroke makers, have demolished attacks with skill and power in ODI’s and T20’s against India. The Caribbean cricketers are both winners and entertainers, playing with a flair and freedom, pushing boundaries, feared by opponents and loved by fans. The current ICC World T20 champions, the West Indies team came with a plan, bettering their Indian counterparts in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup, and is sure to bring new tactics to the table in the upcoming ODI and T20 series against India.
