Can West Indies finally chalk up a 'W' against India today? The visitors have been relentless on their tour so far, with only weather stopping them completing five wins from five. But a big Windies performance today could give the hosts momentum heading into the Test series. Check out our guide below on how to live stream the West Indies vs India ODI series, no matter where you are in the world.

India's tour of the West Indies, has so far been something of a stop start affair thanks to near relentless rain during its T20 stop offs in Florida and Guyana. But when the weather has played ball, it's been India who have looked the stronger side.

West Indies vs India - where and when

The dates, times and venues for the three-match ODI series are as follows:

1st ODI Providence Stadium, Guyana - Thursday August 8

2nd ODI Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad - Sunday August 11

3rd ODI Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad - Wednesday August 14

Each match starts at 09.30am local time. So that's 7pm IST and 2.30pm BST.

The change in format is likely to see personal changes for the next run of games, as both teams try to work out their best starting elevens for next year. Young hopes Navdeep Saini and Rahul Chahar have both shined for India in the T20 series, deflecting attention away from rumours of a rift within the team camp. The pair look likely to get a further opportunity over the next three games. The Windies, meanwhile, will be hoping Kieron Pollard's positive return from injury will inspire a side that still looks a little low on confidence.
