Published:Friday | July 5, 2013 | 7:46 AM

West Indies will go in search of a victory to confirm their place in the finals when the tri-nation series resumes today with the first match in the Trinidad leg.

The host nation will start the Trinidad leg against recently crowned ICC Champions Trophy winners India.

West Indies enter today’s contest atop the three-team table with nine points, courtesy of two wins from as many matches in the Jamaica leg, while Sri Lanka are second with five points.

Both the teams have managed to win a bonus point.

India are bottom of the table without a point and need a victory against West Indies to keep alive in the tournament.

West Indies have made one change to their squad for the Trinidad matches, bringing in fast bowler Jason Holder in place of the injured Ravi Rampaul.

They are likely to keep their pace combination of Kemar Roach and Tino Best to hustle the India batsmen.

One-Day captain Dwayne Bravo, who was rested in the previous match as a precautionary measure, is expected to return.

West Indies beat India by one-wicket on Sunday at Sabina Park in Jamaica.
