Both Tilak Varma and Mukesh Kumar are scheduled to play their first T20I matches for India

A young-looking Indian team faced the Caribbean side in the opening T20I of the five-match series after a dominant performance in the Test and ODI series against West Indies. The team's captain, Hardik Pandya, opted to give Tilak Varma and Mukesh Kumar their first-ever T20I caps.

While Varma earned his India debut in the first game of the short-format series, Mukesh had already made his Test and ODI debuts during the tour. Tilak received his first India call-up after excelling for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2023, and he didn't have to wait long to find his spot in the middle order.
