In a video posted by the BCCI, Lara can be seen in a conversation with the stand-in captain Shikhar Dhawan, vice-captain Shreyas Iyer, and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal also joined the trio.

Stand-in skipper Shikhar Dhawan will again look to make a statement as the Indian team, made up of fringe players, take on the West Indies in the second ODI on Sunday.

With the series on the line, the West Indies would look to put an end to their losing streak in ODIs which has now stretched to seven matches, including a 0-3 loss to Bangladesh in the preceding rubber.
