India ended as the runners-up in the recently-concluded Champions Trophy after suffering a defeat by 180 runs at the hands of arch-rivals Pakistan.

On the other hand, West Indies failed to qualify for the Champions Trophy as they were not among the top eight ODI teams as per ICC rankings on Sept 30, 2015.

Earlier, West Indies drew the three-match ODI series against Afghanistan 1-1 at home. They lost the first match by 64 runs after Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan bagged a record 7-18 in the match. The hosts later won the second match and the third was called off due to rain.
