India meets West Indies today

India will find themselves up against a rejuvenated West Indies side as they seek their first win of the DLF tri-series tournament in Malaysia today. Brian Lara's team upset Australia in their last match and he believes they can now go from strength to strength.

Indian team is looking at making few changes and S Sreesanth looks almost certain to find a place ahead of a seamer. ''We haven't picked the team but we won't see big changes, even though some changes would be there,'' said Indian Coach Greg Chappell.

He also said that the team had slightly different role for Irfan now. Irfan has struggled with the ball but has chipped in with a vital fifty batting at number three. "Some people don't seem to have confidence in my players, but I do," Lara commented.

"We are not highly ranked in the world and are focused on getting up there. I feel it is going to come right." West Indies hope to have seam bowler Corey Collymore available for the first time in the tournament after recovering from a thigh injury. And having already qualified for next Sunday's final has given them a major lift ahead of the Champions Trophy in India, where they will have to pre-qualify despite being the defending champions.
