Rohit Sharma declared "experimentation is overrated" ahead of India's three-match T20 International series against West Indies.
With another T20 World Cup on the horizon in Australia this year, India and the Windies are determined to show what they are capable of after failing in the 2021 tournament.
Rohit led India to a 3-0 ODI clean sweep of West Indies this month and their expectant supporters will be demanding another whitewash.
India have won eight of their past nine matches against the Windies in the shortest format heading into the series-opener at Eden Gardens on Wednesday.
Washington Sundar and KL Rahul miss out due to hamstring injuries, while Axar Patel will not feature in the series as he is in the final stage of his rehabilitation after recently recovering from coronavirus.
Skipper Rohit is no mood to experiment as he looks to continue the white-ball momentum.
He said: "I feel the word experimentation is overrated, in my terms. We are trying to find those holes that are there in the squad and try and fill that gap. So whatever it takes, we will try and do that.
"All these guys [the fringe players] are very young and haven't played a lot of cricket. We need to give them the assurity and the game time.
"Once we have that, then we can try out things. Until then, whatever little holes we have in our squad, we have to try and fill that."
The Windies were outplayed in the 50-over format, but beat England 3-2 in a thrilling T20I series on home soil last month and named an unchanged squad to face India.
Rohit backs Kohli
It is over two years since Virat Kohli score an international hundred, but Rohit says the former captain should not be questioned.
The opener said: "If you guys [the media] can keep quiet for a while, I think he'll be alright. We don't need to do too much talking from your side, then everything will be taken care of. He is in a great mental space from whatever I see of him.
"He has been part of this international team for more than a decade. If someone has spent that much time in international cricket, they know how to handle the pressure situations, the environment, everything. It all starts from you guys. If you guys can keep it quiet for a bit, then everything will fall into place."
Pollard fit to lead tourists
Kieron Pollard was an injury doubt after suffering a niggle in the ODI series, but the captain confirmed he will be fit for the start of this series.
Pollard will be hoping former skipper Jason Holder can conjure up more heroics after his stunning exploits with the ball in the decider against England in Barbados last month.
The all-rounder took four wickets in as many balls in the final over to finish with figure of 5-27.
