Explosive all-rounder Andre Russell is yet to join the West Indies team for their first T20 global of the three-match series against India here at the Eden Gardens.

When and what time is the India vs West Indies? Russell, who was initially part of the 15-man squad announced to take on India, was yet to join the squad on the eve of the first game. However, Cricket West Indies (CWI) has named Shai Hope as his replacement hoping that he replicates his ODI form in the T20Is.

"Some of them had a taste in the ODI format and I personally think we did a lot better than a lot of people expected in the ODI format, and it's for us to come in the T20 format now and create an even bigger surprise and come away with the trophy at the end of the series". The team will be led by Carlos Brathwaite who himself is a formidable all-rounder.

Rovman Powell, had had opened in the final ODI in Thiruvananthapuram, was listed to open again with Darren Bravo, who was playing his first T20 since 2014 and first worldwide since November 2016.

The 31-year-old has a world record score of 264 in ODIs at the Eden Gardens in 2014, besides winning two IPL titles, in 2013 and 2015.
